Mobile Scanning Twice as Fast - 05/04/2011
Experience proves that mobile scanning takes half the time of laser scanning using tripod setup. This is on top of the eight to ten times improvement that laser scanning already delivers over traditional survey methods, according to 3D laser scanner developer Maptek.
Maptek will visit mining regions in North America between April and July to demonstrate how sites can use mobile scanning to collect accurate survey data in a safer, faster, and easier way than ever before.
The Maptek I-Site 8800 long-range laser scanner has been set up with a ruggedised vehicle mount on a light-duty truck. The scanner is operated from within the cab, allowing normally inaccessible areas to be captured without risk to personnel.
While on site, Maptek staff will do the surveying, process the data, and demonstrate the workflow and results to operations.
Maptek’s latest hardware, the I-Site 8800 laser scanner has a data capture range of up to 2,000 metres.
