|Q) What is 3D
A)3D Laser Scanning is a technology used in surveying to collect data. Laser scanners are a non-contact laser instrument that measures x,y,z coordinates on objects that is reflected from the beam. One difference between a scanner and something like a total station, is that a scanner captures thousands of points per second. With so many points, it's possible to scan entire objects in detail effortlessly from the instrument. Laser scanning is used widely in all industries that need dimensional accuracy. This technology is another tool in the toolbox for JMR to perform complicated surveying tasks more accurately, safer and in less time.
It is a measurement technique of recording the time and reflective
signature of a laser pulsed on an object, computing and recording a coordinate.
Think of it as a reflectorless total station recording thousands of points
per second thereby creating a "cloud" of points used to identify
and model objects.
