What You Get
The process of laser scanning comprises: survey planning, field data acquisition, data preparation, data registration, data quality control and analysis, data modelling and extraction of information, and delivery of product.

We begin with the owner’s raw site, such as this gas processing facility.
On large, complex outdoor surveys, we may pre-locate the control points remotely, saving time on-site.
Scans are carried out by a well-trained crew comprising an operator and an assistant. The data is initially stored in the scanner, then transferred to a computer.
After scanning, the 3D data is processed into a “point cloud”, which looks like this.
Your scan includes high-resolution photography that is integrated with the point cloud. The point cloud, combined with stored photographic imagery, provides a user-friendly panoramic view, with interactive hard data overlaid on command. It allows zooming, panning and tilting, outside...
The integrated data enables you to select any two points and see an immediate measurement at millimetre accuracy – including distance and inclination.
After export to software such as AutoCAD, the Seis-Scan point cloud can be converted into high-resolution renderings. With input from the client, renderings can be produced with pipe insulation removed.
You can get precise measurements of any physical item, including pipe diameter – excellent for planning facility modifications.
Seis-Scan 3D laser scans can even be converted into 2D digital drawings. A Seis-Scan project is thus transformed into a component of building information modelling. This is a powerful advantage when planning facility upgrades that require engineering and design work, plus legal permits.
