3D LASER SCANNING & 360 DEGREE TRUEVIEW IMAGERY
360 DEGREE TRUEVIEW IMAGERY
Having an advantage of 360-degree TrueView imagery linked to the point cloud gives a benefit to all parties involved in the project as it allows to view, analyse and extract data from site remotely without the need of physical site visits. This can save both valuable time that is given to achieve a project deadline and reduce travel expenses.
At Red Laser Scanning, we believe that more data is always better. It is still possible to crop and reduce the size of the file if required, however it will give an assurance of not requiring any further site visits after the completion of the 3D scanning survey.
BENEFITS OF 360 DEGREE TRUEVIEW IMAGERY
- Extraction of measurements with an accuracy of 2mm
- Limiting the need to site visits
- Virtual 360-degree tour around scanned premises
- Work progress assessment without the need to visit the site
- Time & cost saving
When a 3D laser scanning survey is undertaken, a 3D scanner is positioned at multiple places around the surveyed site to capture all details from all sides. Although there is no requirement to do so, in the majority of internal 3D laser surveys, we usually position the scanner around 7 metres away from each scan location (unless requested otherwise by the client). The reason behind it is to capture as much detail as possible, as the scanner is also equipped with an HDR 360-degree TrueView imagery camera.
THE 360-DEGREE TRUE VIEW
The 360-degree TrueView imagery captured from each scanned location can either be extracted and viewed separately as single file images or integrated into the point cloud file. Combining 360 imagery into the point cloud gives a great benefit to the user by allowing to have a virtual tour around the site using the 360 TrueView Imagery and advantage of any measurement extractions with an accuracy of +- 2mm. As the true view imagery is viewed through the point cloud using Autodesk Recap or other relevant software, the client will have a space plan with each 360 degrees camera position, which makes the experience of navigation flawless and effortless.
