A lot can be at stake in construction projects, so you need to make sure that you can avoid wasting money and time on them. To prevent costly mistakes and rework, consider hiring professional land surveyors who can do high definition surveying. Also known as ‘HD surveying’ or ‘3D laser scanning survey’, it is a non-invasive method for collecting accurate and detailed as-built data. It uses the most up-to-date, cutting-edge laser beam technology to explore the large parcel of land or property. As the laser beam sweeps across the area to be surveyed, it picks up closely spaced measurements in a matter of minutes, and they are transferred to a computer and displayed on a screen.
High definition surveying creates a detailed representation of your land, and it is easy to navigate, similar to a three-dimensional model. This method of land surveying continues to revolutionize the industry. It can serve as a safety measure for surveyors who may need to work on a risk site, like heavily traveled highways or uneven or compromised terrain. As long as you work with the right team of surveyors, you can be confident in the accuracy and completeness of the digital output.
As-builts can be completed more accurately and quickly at a lower cost with high definition surveying compared to when you have the survey done traditionally with old school tools and techniques. The platform lets the data become available to every discipline, including environmental classification, construction, planning, and engineering. Moreover, it ensures highly accurate survey data, faster project turnaround, and worker safety. In some cases, the survey can provide comprehensive 3D CAD models from point clouds quickly and precisely.
High definition surveying is also useful to many other applications, including damage and condition assessment, inspections, deformation analysis, tank/vessel volumetric information, clash/interference checking, 3D semi-automated modeling, and deformation analysis. A high-end software is utilized for viewing the scanned HD images and measurements. If required, the device can take 360 by 320-degree photo-realistic panoramic scans to provide a more precise and exclusive look at the three-dimensional properties of the land. Results may be exchanged with CAD platforms, and they can be used as a reference for making 2D plans.
