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 [...]

Construction Verification Grows Up…

We’re all aware that ‘digital’ is big right now. It’s big in our personal lives, big in our social activities, big in our homes and now - albeit almost the last to catch on – it’s big in the Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Operation (AECO) industry. More often now, we see virtual 3D models embellished [...]
