High Definition Data for Enhanced Design
KS Associates offers 3D laser scanning/terrestrial LiDAR services — technology that provides a high level of detail for use in design and construction. Our 3D laser scanners generate “point clouds,” or three-dimensional, photo-realistic datasets of objects resulting in detailed computer models of the scanned environment. 3D laser scanning provides measurable survey points to extreme detail and accuracy.
One great benefit of scanning — you can virtually revisit the project site from your desktop. If needed, our team can extract additional data from the point cloud, which can avoid the need to physically re-visit the project site.
3D laser scanning also captures data for otherwise inaccessible areas, such as high-level bridges, overpasses, tunnels, tanks, or hazardous areas. Scanning can improve safety, eliminate the need for costly specialized equipment, and reduce lane closures and traffic delays.
Uses for 3D Laser Scanning:
- Architectural Design
- As-Built Plans
- Building Conversions
- Historical Preservation
- Limited or Inaccessible Areas
- Manholes and Underground Structures
- Plant Process Engineering
- Rail and Power Facilities
