3D laser scanning or cloud surveys, increases the speed and accuracy in the creation of plans, elevations and profiles. Accurate volumes and area calculations can be determined from the 3D geometry created from point clouds. Sections can be taken from any point through the 3D data collected. A big advantage of a cloud point survey is that you have a 3D image of the inspected area. With this image you can extract further data at a later stage, without the need to revisit the site or conduct a new survey.
