How It's Done
Seis-Scan 3D laser surveys are fast and efficient. Surveys typically require from a few hours to several days. Scanning locations can be established in safe areas, keeping the survey crews out of harm’s way. 3D laser scans are performed by an operator and an assistant. Data can typically be processed and delivered to the client within a few days of the survey.

Seisland establishes the network of scanning locations using safe, flat areas with good visibility wherever possible. To increase efficiency and reduce costs on larger outdoor surveys, Seisland generates quotes using satellite imagery to plan the scanning survey if an initial site visit isn’t possible.
The scanner is run at each predetermined location, collecting data throughout the project area safely and efficiently. Data is stored on the scanner, then transferred to a laptop via USB cable or memory card.
In the office, Seisland uses the raw data to produce a point cloud, then registers and geo-references the measurements. From there, Seisland either creates renderings (see Step 4) or transfers the data to the client.
Data is converted for a variety of uses: in a viewer or in rendering, modelling or drawing software (CAD, GIS and/or Autodesk Revit). Seisland can provide these services, or the client may use their own software.
