Laser scanning – what’s it all about?

Surveying has always been about capturing information from the real world. Today’s technology enables more accurate and complete capture of real world information than ever before…

At CMS Surveyors, we’ve invested in the latest 3D Scanning hardware and software so we can continue to provide our clients with the richest survey data possible.

The last few years have seen the design and construction industry embrace Building Information Modelling (BIM) as a tool for creating better products more economically. CMS Surveyors play a vital role in the creation of accurate Building Information Models, particularly when it comes to refurbishment and redevelopment projects. 

The Technology

The Technology Our Leica P40 Laser Scanner is able to capture 1,000,000 points per second to an accuracy of 3mm at 50m from the scanner and is able to scan almost any material or surface. Additionally, the scanner can capture full High Dynamic Range photography which allows the collected point cloud to be accurately coloured, creating what is akin to a 3D photograph of the site. A full 360° dome scan can be completed in under 5 minutes which allows sites to be surveyed at a speed and level of details that has never previously been possible. CMS Surveyors Scanning Team We have extensive experience in all facets of Surveying.
