Changes in Plant and Infrastructure Surveying

by Michael Croft on August 30, 2016 in 3D Scanning

Certain buildings require more planning than others. When a given structure will be used for complex operations and sensitive tasks, it is important to make sure that the area it will be built on can support these needs effectively. This is why plant and infrastructure planning has always required top-notch surveying. In recent years, new technology has been developed to help provide more accurate assessments of land, and to ensure that a given structure can be built according to very precise specifications. 3D Laser Scanning technology is quickly becoming the standard for plant and infrastructure surveying.

What Advantages Does 3D Laser Scanning Offer?

When compared to other, more traditional surveying techniques, the main benefit of 3D laser scanning technology  is that it allows for very precise data to be acquired about a structure or land. The accurate nature of this style of surveying means that building plans can be streamlined, making it easy for even the most detailed building to be constructed.

The Emergence of the Virtual Plant

Many types of building plans are used consistently around the world. This is especially true for infrastructure that have regulatory mandates to meet in terms of their construction. With accurate surveying, planners can create “virtual” plans which can be accessed by appropriate parties anywhere in the world. This helps to promote efficient project management, proper maintenance, and flawless safety compliance. Thanks to 3D laser scanning technology, this type of option is now becoming more mainstream.
