Using laser scanning, SEP offer an alternative to traditional survey techniques. It consists of automated high speed data capture of complex surfaces and often inaccessible environments. There are many possible outputs available from point-clouds and basic measurements through to ortho-images, derived 2D/3D drawings, meshing/surfacing or solid modelling.
Whether it is architecture, industrial, petrochemical, plant construction, reverse engineering, quality control or historical preservation and forensics – 3D documentation by means of laser scanners offers significant advantages compared with any conventional measuring method due to the laser scanner recording approximately one million measuring points per second and produces a precise, three dimensional image of its surroundings. With suitable plugins, this image can be directly imported into a wide range of software applications.
