What Is High Definition Scanning?
High definition laser scanning is a process used to obtain accurate 3D pictures and measurements of various sites or structures. This modern measuring technology is both precise and accurate. It's also quite cost effective. Obtaining high definition laser scans allows aspects to be captured that might ordinarily be problematic such as rough surfaces, unusual facilities and remote areas. High definition laser scanning is also a safer method for surveyors to use and allows building inhabitants to continue regular activities with fewer disruptions than other methods.
This precise scanning is utilized often in space planning, building face studies, post-construction documentation and forensic surveys, among other uses. It uses what's known as either LIDAR or Phase-based technology to capture the 3D data in an incredibly effective manner. This technology is versatile in that it can be used in so many settings, regardless of surface features or size.
Clear digital records can be produced of topographical or structural conditions without the instrumentation even touching the object being measured. Data or "point clouds" are formed through the millions of measurement points produced by the scan. These points are called "coordinates." Every single coordinate within a point cloud is assigned an x,y and z value. Other names for these values are Easting for x, Northing for y and Elevation for z. Because these points are so very precise in detail, it's possible to measure exactly from one point to another in the point cloud.
