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 [...]
