The technologies of laser scanning and photogrammetry enable the measurement of buildings, monuments and other objects with a very high density of information. 3D point clouds result directly from measurements using a laser scanner. Accuracy and consistency are guaranteed. You will obtain a reliable basis for all your projects.
From these point clouds we can generate a 3D model of the object or extract key information in the form of 2D plots of façades, plan views, elevations and horizontal or vertical cross sections.
Our advanced technology also enables us to create orthophotos or textured 3D models based on the laser scanner survey and on high quality digital images. We have developed our own software for this type of application: ImgSurveyor forms a bridge between laser scanning and photogrammetry.
To go further in building or site management, we can also provide a three-dimensional building information model (BIM). This adds intelligence to the raw 3D model from the laser scanner.
3D vector datasets are delivered in standard CAD formats.
In cases such as the following :
our methods deliver these major benefits :
Created from point clouds in conjunction with photographs, 360° panoramic visualisations give an excellent understanding of the existing site as well as a rapid measurement capability.
A virtual reconstruction of the geometry of the object, the 3D model is the preferred medium on which to base your plans.
A virtual reconstruction of the object in the form of a textured model, the 3D visualisation is your essential communication tool.
Elevations and horizontal and vertical sections enable the viewer to access the detail of the measured object and to understand the complexities of the whole site.
The immersive walkthrough or pedestrian view is an ideal communication tool which places you at the heart of the 3D model.
Quality and accuracy of your completed structures … benefit from quality control delivered by an external and independent surveyor.
This product uses the point cloud derived from laser scanning or photogrammetry, in the form of a simple orthorectified image.
For information which is both graphic and accurate … an orthophotograph is not just a communication tool but an invaluable working document.
Exhaustive and accurate monitoring … our processes enable flatness to be checked or deformations to be quantified.
This complete basic dataset emerges directly from our measurements. It is a digital archive of the measured object but at the same time it provides you with the opportunity to extract any type of plot or of 3D model.
The topographic map shows the existing situation on the ground, and is needed at the outset of your project.
