Laser Scanning

Laser Scanning is becoming the standard for fast accurate measurement of anything from building to ships and industrial sites. Our Faro 130X scanners are capable of measuring up to 976,000 points per second with densities of up to 1 point per1mm. This gives us unrivalled resolution when drawing and provides the most detail for surface modelling. 

The Downland Partnership has invested heavily in specialist software including Faro Scene, Leica Cyclone, Leica Cloudworx, Pointools View Pro, Pointools4Rhino and Leica 3dReshaper. 

Laser Scanning can be used for a wide range of surveying products. We have used pointcloud data to produce finely detailed drawings of many of the Abbeys and Cathedrals across the UK and overseas as well as providing clients such as British Gas with 3D data of their plants as far away as North Africa. Pointcloud data can also be used for surface modelling, deformation analysis and for producing virtual reality models.
