Point cloud survey data

The short video shown here is put together from over 1.2billion individual scanned data points – each with precise X, Y and Z coordinates. You can see for yourself the level of detail achievable with modern scanning technology.

This particular point-cloud describes a disused subway in London, England. The video itself is less important – we think – than the actual data it’s taken from. The static point-cloud can be used to create a 3D computer model, showing fine detail, or sliced into manageable sections to provide a template for constructing very accurate and detailed 2D plans, sections and elevations.

The data in the video is fairly typical, in density and detail, of what Callidus Surveys routinely produces. Could this kind of data help your next project? Give Callidus a call to find our skilled and knowledgeable surveyors at your service.
