How will Reality Capture help and improve the climate issue?

The world has changed so much over the last few years. Climate change, in particular, has been a longstanding issue and it continues to threaten the world with its damaging effects—from unpredictable shifts in the weather to devastating storms and heat waves that has already killed millions over the years.

To answer this growing problem, different industries have worked on reducing their carbon footprint and finding ways to make processes more efficient while contributing to climate improvement. This is particularly true for construction and design that produces one of the biggest greenhouse emissions in the world.

Experts have been looking for ways to make the industry part of the climate solution and not add to the problem, and one of the most popular methods used today is reality capture.

Understanding reality capture

Augmented reality has given us a new perspective on things, putting a more realistic approach to virtual worlds. But today, this technology is doing more than just entertain.

In fact, it’s now used to let people see the realities of climate change. After Ice, an AR application created by visual artist Justin Brice Guariglia uses reality capture to produce an image of the Arctic and how it’s affected by climate change.

But this technology isn’t just limited to visualisation because the construction and design industry is now using 3D laser scanning to create renewable structures in the most efficient way possible.

With reality capture, you get the most accurate 3D model representation of any structure because it uses real-world data that’s captured with 3D laser scanning technology and 3D laser scanners.

Today, the construction and design industry are already benefiting from augmented reality in terms of:

  • Cutting the time and resources needed to do surveys. Less travel to the construction site means less fuel used from vehicles to cut down on greenhouse emissions.
  •  More accurate planning to make sure that everything is done right the first time. This ensures that no resources, materials and energy is wasted throughout the project.
  •  Added efficiency for the people doing the project. Digitalisation and its beneficial factors, has made construction processes a lot more efficient, construction sites safer and costs a lot more manageable.
  •  Improved ability to maintain, inspect and repair structures in the long run to keep them safe and renewable to help with global problems.

3D laser scanning and its benefits on the climate
Although it’s not widely published, advanced technology has been used a lot in understanding climate change and finding ways to stop its effects on the planet.

For instance, 3D laser scanning instruments and methods are now used for glacier exploration because it helps cut down the time it takes to scan large glaciers while ensuring the most accurate data for researchers to use in studying climate change.

3D laser scanning services are also now being used to help assess the effects of climate change and put risk mitigation and adaptation plans in place, especially when it comes to protecting historical structures.

A study from the University of Florida revealed the benefits of using 3D laser scanning in creating different scenarios of sea level rise and how they can affect historic coastal communities in the state.

This data and its 3D model representation was used to create plans that will help protect these communities against the damaging effects of climate change in the area.

The future of reality capture in helping the climate

Reality capture has made it possible for experts to not only understand the current state of the world because of climate change, but also find ways to help achieve the goal of conserving as much energy as we can, eliminate unnecessary waste and make things more efficient so they can run without emitting too much greenhouse gases.

With a simple laser scan, this technology is slowly—and surely—changing the way we look at industrialisation, so we can all benefit from progress without sacrificing the only planet we call home.

    Case Studies
    LOCATION: THE TRINITY COLLEGE CLOCK BUILDING IN CAMBRIDGE
Red Laser Scanning, a laser scanner survey was commissioned to meticulously document the students' accommodation within this historic edifice, producing architectural CAD drawings at a scale of 1:50
    Measured Building Survey of The Iconic Trinity College Clock Building in Cambridge
    LOCATION: THE PARADISE COURT, UNIVERSITY OF CHICHESTER
By combining the detailed drawings at a scale of 1:20 with High-Resolution Orthophotos, we achieved an accurate representation of the exposed stonework, textured with a rectified photo collage.
