3D Scanning

Geotec S.p.A. can also supply clients with 3D Scanning services.  
3D scanning is a technology that captures the shape of physical objects digitally.  3D laser scanners create  “point clouds” of data from the surface of an object which are geo-referenced and geometrically correct. A  vast amount of high quality data is generated in a very short period, producing in this way a high resolution survey with a lot of extra information. The accuracy of the laser together with the precision of the photographic images makes laser scanning surveys realistic and complete.  
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.

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
  • To produce high resolution Digital Terrain Models (DTM)
  • To create orthophotos
  • And developed with mathematical equations to identify 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 simulate possible solutions, changes and alterations to brightness and colour
  • For conservation and deterioration analysis
  • To navigate virtually

This technology is being applied across a wide variety of sectors including: environmental engineering, civil engineering, architecture (buildings and infrastructure), urban topography, archeology and crime scenes.
