Students Laser Capture Historic Buildings in STEAM Summer Camp

In 2012, a fire destroyed the historic Kelley Mansion in downtown San Jose, CA.  While many historic buildings in the area have absolutely no floor plans or building documentation, the community was fortunate that Brian Miller and a group of high school students in his summer engineering camp had recently scanned the property. “Over [...]

Best Practices For Survey Control

Harnessing the Power of 3D Laser Scanning You know you can’t do a project well without survey control. But what’s less clear for architectural, engineering and construction professionals is how and why to link survey control with 3D laser scan data. 3D laser scanners use light and radar (LIDAR) to measure and record precise locations [...]
