A laser scanned approach offers numerous advantages and value-adds compared to traditional survey techniques. Each individual scan collects on average 11 million points, resulting in a massive data-set that the Opus survey team can then utilize to extract the required end deliverable or provide it directly in one of many point cloud formats.
Value-adds offered by a laser scanned approach include the ability to provide subsequent stakeholders/design teams with the ability to view the site from the perspective of the lser scanner set-ups within a photo-realistic environment from the comfort of their desks. Additional benefits include the fact that the laser scanner is indiscriminate in the data it records, surveying everything within line of site and range of the scanner meaning that should additional information be identified as being required at a later date, this information has often already been surveyed meaning additional site visits are not required saving significant costs. These value adds are a by product of the laser scanned approach and can be provided at minimal to no extra costs.
