Fully detailed point cloud surveys captured using high definition laser scanners. Our survey teams will laser scan your project then supply a fully registered point cloud in any standard formatfor your own use.
A point cloud consists of many millions (and very often billions) of 3D points usually collected by using a laser scanner, or sometimes from using photographic techniques. File sizes are usually very large - often many Gigabytes in size. They can be brought into AutoCad, Revit, Microstation, and other CAD or BIM software suites and can be used as a reference to create drawings or models from. Each point has an x,y and z coordinate and usually a reflective value (this represents how light or dark the surface is that the point has measured to - imagine a black and white photograph), and sometimes a colour value too.
To handle point clouds well, a powerful computer is required, preferably with at least 16 Gb of RAM. To draw or model effectively from a point cloud additional 3rd party software is usually also used to edit and manipulate the data.
Because of its size a point cloud file is usually delivered to the client on a USB memory drive.
We can deliver your point cloud, fully registered and in all major formats.
