High Definitoin Laser Scannings

High Definition Laser Scanning

As site topo surveys increase in complexity to include mechanical and structural elements, conventional survey methods and GNSS data collection begins to weaken. Southern Survey and Design pioneered 3D Laser Scanning in 2012 and implemented a full service scanning and modeling service in April of 2013.

Southern Survey and Design uses a phase based laser scanner weekly to collect measurements in complex environments using Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR). Our largest scan project to date involved over 300 scan positions on three different levels, nine flights of scaffolding to scan one tower, a high resolution scan position trained on another tower, with the point cloud placed on plant control provided by others and adjusted to another companies scan elevation, complete with hot work permits, federal background checks, site specific safety classes, onsite escorts, and post processing using two different softwares.

ìIf we can see it, we can scan itÖ and if we can scan it, we can model it, and we can deliver it to you in your format.î

We continue to write scan proposals as our first step to ìPlan the Scan, and Scan the Plan.î Other scan projects have include man lifts and adverse conditions to collect accurate data. Southern Survey and Design has scanned over 40 sites in our area that range from stock pile volumes of mulch to offshore sled

refurbishing and continue scan. If your company would like a demonstration or your team would like to ask the difficult questions about collecting scan data, Southern Survey and Design has solutions.

Our best clients currently work in pointcloud environments and subsidize their piping design with valuable real world data. However, these past few years have been on the cutting edge of technology and Southern Survey and Design has led the way in point cloud applications and corporate development for our clients. We know the industry and the software and can make professional recommendations.

Our experience and safety compliance allows Southern Survey to look forward with terrestrial LiDAR scanning in your facilities and construction projects. Although it begins with the data capture, Southern Survey and Design is experienced in point cloud modeling and capable of delivering in a multitude of file types and programs.
