“For an intersection survey, it would usually take 6 or 8 hours. With NavVis VLX, I can collect the entire intersection in 10 minutes.”
“We have benefitted from a huge time saving on the 81 ha site from 3 months using traditional methods to 2 weeks using the NavVis VLX.”
“Without NavVis VLX, documenting the building would have been much more expensive and tedious.”
“The team finished the capture of the 44.7-hectare area in only 2 days. Compare that to 40 days for a traditional survey.”
“Using NavVis VLX and manual methods, a team of two could be in and out of a tank in only four days.”
“NavVis VLX is absolutely the best tool for the job, providing the right balance between accuracy, speed, and scale.”
Benefits of mobile mapping are on the rise
of laser scanning experts see potential in utilizing mobile mapping to offer new services. Read the full report.
of professionals agreed that investing in mobile mapping is essential to maintaining a competitive edge.
more searches for mobile mapping in Google last year. This is 40,000+ searches vs. 9,000 for terrestrial laser scanning.
Here's what our customers say
"For surveying complex building structures, mobile laser scanning is perfect. Without NavVis VLX, documenting this building would have been much more expensive and tedious, if not completely impossible."
"Even though the team snapped the data to every control point they could, they finished the capture of the 44.7 hectare area in only 2 days. Compare that to the 40 they budgeted for traditional survey.."
"For a 20 million gallon tank, that’s probably half a million square feet of surface area. Each tank could have taken a team of 6 people up to three weeks. Using NavVis VLX and manual methods, a team of two could be in and out of a tank in only four days"
The benefits of a hybrid workflow, according to our customers
A hybrid workflow approach to laser scanning generates high-quality data with speed. A growing number of leading professionals now use hybrid workflows. They bring TLS, mobile scanners, and/or drones into the field, and then use each one for the job it does best. Then, with the use of survey control, they combine these data sets into a single point cloud for their customers.
What about speed and accuracy?
"A big improvement for us is going from 1 hour and 45 minutes to 15 minutes in the field."
"The NavVis VLX for us was a natural choice. It's fast. It gets a tiny enough level of accuracy for our use case."
"When you’ve scanned 24 sites, in next to no time with a NavVis VLX, you're thinking....'why was that so quick?'......then you process in the cloud and realize in the past you would have grown a new beard, had a few kids, and endured many England games that went to extra time and penalties at the same time! I love this bit of kit!"
"NavVis VLX is a device with the ability to capture data very quickly. What that means, is that I can be on-site for less time, which is less in travel costs."
"Terrestrial laser scanners were too slow to set up for scanning at volume, while handheld laser scanners didn’t have the required level of accuracy. But then we got hands our hands on NavVis VLX. It is absolutely the best tool for the job, providing the right balance between accuracy, speed, and scale.”
"With NavVis 3D laser scanning technology, we were able to support the project team with reliable data of the investment site [...] 20,000 m2 were scanned in one day."
"We've done a comparison, scanning with a static scanner and with NavVis VLX. The difference was under one centimeter, which is really great. It's huge for us."
"Mobile mapping has been on our radar for quite a while, and we tested a few systems over the years, but it didn't achieve the accuracy mark that we need at Terra Measurement Ltd. We looked at NavVis VLX and did some careful testing over a number of months, and NavVis has helped us with that and we proved its accuracy. So at that point, we were able to buy one."
"I think the technology of NavVis VLX is fantastic, honestly. I mean, the speed that we get out of it, the accuracy, the detail, and the data, the completeness of the data, that's really where it shines."
"Oh, it's the speed. The speed of being in the field, being able to work with project partners that like the fact that I only need to be there for eight hours for a 300,000 square foot site. It's not disrupting anything. With NavVis I'm getting really good, clean point clouds."
"We're actually very, very impressed with the NavVis system because the data density is impressive. The imagery is impressive. It's actually what sold us on because we love looking at lidar data."
"I can turn data around to my customers faster. We're able to do a lot of things faster than with a traditional terrestrial-style scanner."
