Having all of the information you might need at your fingertips, without the need for additional cost and time for further surveying means you can focus on the important things.
We build 3D models with accuracy down to millimetres.
We provide a fully workable 3D model of your entire site, in the most appropriate format (AutoCad, Revit, etc.). You can then view and measure every possible data point at your site, from every angle or import data to your GIS to manage your railway assets with confidence.
3D laser scanning allows measuring reference points in line of sight from a safe distance, minimising site interruptions or potential hazards.
If you require reference point information at a later date, the data is already available for processing. There is no need for an additional site visit.
Scope: survey of a major road (six lanes) and a railway (two tracks) intersection.
Survey area: approx. 120m x 50m.
Deliverables: 2D plans with levels and 3D triangle mesh.
