One trick we utilize it to place the scanner in the hatchway between compartments, which gives us the overlap needed to do a cloud to cloud registration. Works on stairs too. The picture below is of the rudder (left) and steering rooms (right) separated by a bulkhead. Two scans in each room and one in the hatchway. This is BB-35, a retired US Battleship (TEXAS)

Also, anyone have any good ideas on getting coordinates around the different areas of a ship? A naval architect/engineer I was chatting with was wondering how we could start from the outside of the ship on the dock and move our way down the narrow stair wells and through different angles of the ship to near the bottom. I have no idea what size the ship is...I think he was speaking in general terms. I've worked in tight areas on oil platforms and in offices, but it seems like it would be more difficult to get around a ship with the limited lines of sight. Any general ideas would be greatly appreciated!

My Scanner is a SS2
Analyse the location: go to that place/ask for pictures and video/look for positions to scan and to place targets etc.
