Laser Scanning

The Meon Survey Partnership has an enormous amount of experience in using laser scanners, although mainly using Leica's range of High Defintion Scanners, we have also used with success, the Faro range. This "state of the art" technology creates 3 dimensional 'point clouds' of millions of data points which are collected in a matter of minutes. Once this data has been captured and processed it can then be used to create traditional 2D drawings or 3D computer models. As a non-contact or 'remote' instrument, site access may only be required once and it may be possible to avoid hazardous areas, as well as minimal interruption in sensitive areas such as highways or railways.
We now have the capability to use a UAV/Drone to capture to create 3D point clouds of previously inaccessible areas and also survey large areas very quickly and efficiently.

Uses (but not limited to this)

  • Heritage detailing including individual stone and brickwork
  • Visualisation of a development within a street scene, for massing purposes
  • Wireframe models, solid models and fully surfaced 3d models, scan to BIM.
  • Room layout visualisations and flythroughs.
  • Building facades to produce elevations, floorplans, sections etc...
  • 3d models suitable for Rights to Light calculations.
  • Digital terrain models in the form of points-in-space or rendered faces
  • Accurate volume calculations for quarries and spoil heaps, can combine with UAV.
  • Complex plant scans for modelling of plant detail.
  • Scanning of electricity pylons and overhead cables.
  • Infringement surveys and crash accident analysis.
  • UAV: Upper parts or roofs of historic monuments and buildings where visibility or access is limited.
  • UAV: Unsafe areas - cliffs, sea walls, derelict buildings, bridges etc.

    More information

    The point cloud data can be supplied in its raw format or viewable via your Internet Browser using Leica TruView or Faro Scene software.

    We can also provide high resolution 360 degree panoramic images that can be used to provide visually verified surveys, these techniques enable us to create accurately rendered 3D models that can be textured using the photography taken on site. Architect's designs can then be added to the scene for photo realistic visualisation and 3D fly-throughs. This is ideal for presentation to planning departments, public exhibitions, sales and marketing of properties and developments.
