Use cases

  • Surveying

  • As-built documentation & Scan-to-BIM


Construction documentation and verification

From capturing precise measurements to creating detailed 3D models of existing structures or construction sites, SLAM-based laser scanning has proven to be a valuable tool for construction documentation, combining high-definition panoramic imagery with laser scanning accuracy that professionals in the construction industry need to make informed decisions. Those responsible for documenting the current state of a site benefit from its ability to rapidly and accurately capture complex geometries and existing conditions throughout the construction lifecycle.

Surveyors and laser scanning experts similarly play a crucial role in the verification process, leveraging SLAM-based laser scanning to confirm dimensions and ensure the alignment of construction with approved plans. This integration of surveying and laser scanning expertise into the documentation and verification processes offers significant advantages in quickly and frequently gathering accurate as-built data that is information-rich. It enables construction managers to monitor progress, foresee issues before they arise, streamline processes, reduce errors, minimize disruption and on-site risks, and improve overall project coordination.

Mobile mapping systems provide a non-invasive, accurate, and highly efficient method for capturing heritage sites and buildings, both indoors and outdoors. It has proven to be especially useful for projects requiring more extensive documentation while dealing with limited time on-site and tight budget constraints. The documentation generated from the data allows for preserving detailed 3D information such as measurements, features, and surfaces. The resulting digital models and visual representations can serve as references for documentation, restoration, or conservation of heritage sites.

Urban topographic mapping often encounters challenges when using traditional surveying methods. These challenges include working in areas that are hazardous and time-consuming to capture or that make conventional surveying techniques less effective. SLAM-based laser scanning reduces the need for multiple site visits by capturing vital elements more comprehensively in the initial survey; this is crucial when elements were not correctly specified or left out of the original project scope. When integrated into topographic workflows, SLAM-based laser scanning complements and enhances traditional surveying methods such as static laser scanning and total stations, offering a more efficient and comprehensive approach to terrain data capture.

The primary outcome of employing SLAM-based laser scanning in topographic mapping is the creation of detailed 2D and 3D maps and panoramic imagery. These deliverables accurately represent the terrain's geometry and features, whether a street or a building. Thanks to the precise and detailed data obtained through this method, they are also valuable for a wide range of applications, including land surveying and infrastructure planning.

Industrial facilities

Mobile mapping systems are powerful tools for capturing as-built information of industrial facilities and being the foundation for digital twins. Their ability to quickly capture and provide highly accurate 3D representations of complex industrial facilities saves time, minimizes disruption, reduces costs, and enhances safety. The resulting point cloud data and panoramic imagery can be used to generate information-rich 3D models and 2D floorplans and drawings, serving as a digital record for future reference. SLAM-based mobile mapping hardware and software empower professionals to move away from intensive modeling workflows to make informed, real-time decisions based on reality. As such, it optimizes the documentation process and ensures consistent, accurate information is available for activities such as facility management, regulatory compliance, and factory remodeling.

Infrastructure and transportation

SLAM laser scanning offers a powerful solution for infrastructure and transportation applications enabling the generation of detailed 2D and 3D models of infrastructure such as streets, bridges, and buildings such as train/subway stations and airports. With much of today’s extensive, aging infrastructure built before the introduction of CAD (Computer Aided Drawings), many projects begin with little to no digital documentation. Thanks to revolutionary reality capture capabilities to quickly generate rich spatial data, it optimizes asset management and monitoring processes and aids in urban planning and design. The ability to capture detailed 3D data in real time makes it an essential technology in modern infrastructure and transportation sectors where minimal disruption of operations and reduced time spent in hazardous environments is crucial.

Existing buildings & building measurement surveys

Mobile mapping systems powered by SLAM offer several advantages when capturing and generating data for building measurement surveys. These include faster data acquisition, increased efficiency, and the ability to capture large or complex environments comprehensively. Not only is mobile mapping technology ideal for capturing high-quality panoramic imagery of a building or site it is also beneficial for capturing exterior building facades, urban areas, or large-scale projects when exclusive use of a traditional static scanner may be impractical or time-consuming.
