3D Laser Scanning


Laser scanning creates an organized, highly accurate, digital representation of a subject quickly and efficiently. This new and emerging technology allows for the 3D digital acquisition of objects in the form of geo-referenced and geometrically correct point clouds. These clouds can then be reconstructed to give them a surface, and rendered with colors or images added to give a realistic texture to the 3D model. The accuracy of the laser together with the precision of high resolution images makes laser scanning surveys realistic and complete. The uses of Laser scanning technology are endless. Real world environments, people, equipment and items are captured in 3D exactly as they are. 3D laser scanning technology can provide a detailed spatial representation of particularly complex objects, in unreachable and inaccessible survey locations. Particularly useful in the survey of cultural artefacts and historical sites and buildings, and in situations which would be otherwise difficult to research.

Laser scanning experience:


Mforce Surveying is capable of scanning objects and creating Digital models.

3D scanning services are applied to:


  • Civil engineering


  • Environmental engineering


  • Architecture


  • Heritage sites and archaeology

The raw point cloud data acquired can be used:


?To automatically obtain plane sections and generate plans and section views as well as axonometric projections and 3D models;


?To produce high resolution Digital Terrain Models (DTM);


To automatically identify surfaces (meshes), volume, contours, break lines and aspect ratio;


For environmental, structural, infrastructural and archaeological monitoring;


To easily integrate the surveys with topography and photogrammetry; To navigate virtually;


To simulate possible solutions, changes and alterations to brightness and color;


For conservation and deterioration analysis.
