3D Laser Scanning Technology
The technology around the industry has evolved at a rapid pace. It now allows acquisition of very detailed survey data in a very short time.
There are numerous applications in the commercial world for this technology. It has become particular popular in commercial and research archaeology for built heritage assessments and recording historical buildings.
The level of detail a laser scanner can acquire in a short space of time is quickly surpassing conventional drawing methods. It is also a very useful part of the process in generating very detailed CAD files and drawings, depending on your survey requirements.
Why use 3D Laser Scanning?
Ireland has a rich resource of Cultural Heritage assets. Some of the most important and visible monuments on our landscape are our historical buildings. There are policies and laws to protect these structures and it is important that these are retained for future generations.
Heritage management organisations, local authorities and conservation groups often require expert advice and detailed records of these structures. 3D laser scanning can provide this.
