Being a leap ahead of traditional surveying means that 3D Laser Scanning offers substantial benefits to the asset owner. Here are the most important ones.

Surveying from points that we choose is safer for the surveyors and the asset operators. There is less interruption/disruption to facility operations.
3D laser scanning can be done to centimetre or millimetre accuracy, depending on the application and goals.
3D laser surveys take a few hours to a few days, generating vastly more data for a given amount of field time than traditional survey techniques.
Efficient planning enables Seisland to collect more data and provide a more accurate survey than traditional surveying techniques.
Seis-Scan 3D laser surveys can be done virtually anywhere, anytime (day or night), over short as well as long ranges, and in a variety of resolutions to suit the asset owner’s needs.
We select areas with optimal visibility, almost always vehicle-accessible, remaining away from ledges, cliffs, steep slopes, riverbanks and other hazards. The speed of 3D laser scanning intrinsically reduces hazard exposure time. Surveys are done with two-person teams, reducing work-alone hazards.
The scans generate vastly more data than traditional surveying, at much higher resolution. And this is reliable data. The processing stage generates statistics certifying the quality of scanned data, and scans can be checked against test shots or known parameters.
On outdoor surveys, Seisland pre-plots the control points remotely, using satellite imagery, which further reduces our field time and saves the client money.
To maximize efficiency, we select a scanning resolution appropriate to the project’s requirements, to optimize the scanning operation for the asset owner’s objectives. For example, scanning a mountain to measure the volume of in-place ore requires lower resolution than scanning piping and vessels at a processing facility.
The scans also provide more information than traditional surveying, including additional items such as utility lines running alongside a gravel stockpile. This strengthens the client’s risk management and provides useful information for potential GIS mapping of the owner’s assets, if desired.
