Leica Geosystems is excited to announce three new educational movies about laser scanning. The movies provide an easy-to-understand introduction to 3D laser scanning (also known as High-Definition Surveying™ or HDS™) for the rapidly growing number of people researching it for the first time.
Chapter 1 – “The Basics” is an overview with film footage of scanning in the field and processing “point clouds” in the office into drawings, models, etc. It also describes common mapping and as-built survey applications, benefits, types of deliverables, and options that users have for taking advantage of the technology.
Chapter 2 – “How It All Works” describes how laser scanners work (including new animations), what scanner features are important to consider, the topic of “registration” or stitching multiple scans together, and what type of support is available for implementing the technology.
Chapter 3 – “Simple Projects and Complex Projects” acquaints newcomers with using the technology for simple surveys and deliverables and describes laser scanner and software features that help users tackle more complex sites and advanced deliverables.
