Significance of High Definition Scanning and Surveying

High definition scanning and surveying technologies provide a better way to document existing and as-built conditions, making them favorable to the construction, engineering, architecture, and BIM markets. High definition scanning and surveying solutions enable developers, project managers, architects, and engineers view the site context in a different perspective to improve quality control and reduce the chances of errors, omissions, and RFIs. With high definition surveying and scanning, you can achieve fast and discrete field acquisition, and acquire all the important information you will need to make a better decision for your project.

These advanced scanning methods are non-intrusive. This means they can collect accurate and detailed as-built data without requiring you to dig, destroy, or take a sample of land. High definition scanning and surveying methods are based on the latest and most cutting-edge technologies. The survey utilizes a narrow laser beam that sweeps across the target object. During the scan, hundreds of thousands of closely spaced measurements are acquired in a few minutes. The scanned measurements can be displayed on the computer to demonstrate a full and three-dimensional representation of the target results, which can be navigated and viewed like a 3D model.

The other benefits of high definition surveying and scanning include as-built recording or building positioning, clash detection and clearance measurements, and accurate foundation BIM to ensure reliable design and site dimensioning. This way, high definition scanning and 3D surveying technologies have revolutionized the industry. HD survey methods are particularly valuable in the field of land surveying because these offer an additional measure of safety to the surveyors, especially when they need to gather data on busy highways.

The digital output from high definition scanning and surveying assures that accurate and complete as-builts can be delivered more cost effectively and quickly than conventional land surveying methods. This way, HD surveying provides a genuine and proven means to improve the bottom line of your project. The latest technological advances have made land surveying more time-sensitive and cost-effective when providing the most detailed results for any building or construction project.

High definition scanning and surveying services can be used by a wide variety of industries from engineering to environmental classification, construction, and planning. These industries depend on those services for a more accurate survey data, faster project turnaround, and enhanced worker safety. The services are provided by reputable land surveying firms, which use the best high definition scanning survey equipment and 3D laser scanning.
