Logic will get youfrom A to Z. Imaginationwill take youeverywhere. Albert Einstein
Imagine what you can do with 3D laserscan data. • Mechanical & Pipinglayout • Clash Detection • As-Built • Reverse Engineering • Presentation purposes • Maintenance • … • Asset management • BIM • Archeologicalpurposes • Restoration (historical) buildings • Measurement of buildings • 3D printing
Imagine capturing geodata at a glance 3D laser scanning technology maps the world around us with mm-accuray. • High-tech scanners capture hundreds of thousands of points • per second • Each point is a distinct millimeter-accuracy xyz-measurement • shot in full color. • Viewed collectively, these points constitute a photorealistic • ‘point cloud’ which reflects the real world.
Imagine what the future can bring Future challenges • A real standard delivery format • More integrated software solutions : less modelling – more “intelligent” point clouds • Data compression solutions to handle large data sets • 3D mind set
