Laser Scanning Dissertation

Post by SSnowling »

Hi all,

I am currently in the process of undertaking a research project, studying laser scanning in the Surveying industry.

Having been in the industry myself for 7 years, I have seen some significant changes since I first started out..

It would be great to hear from anyone how they feel the industry has moved forward over the years.. I have been using Leica laser scanners (P40 and recently RTC360) for around two years now.

As you can understand, this is quite a short space of time, so would be great to hear from those who have a vast amount more experience than myself.

I am looking to understand how people feel their work has improved with the use of laser scanning, and the deliverables they find themselves able to issue now, compared to X amount of years ago.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Sam,

welcome along! I've started with TLS in 2004 and have got roughly ten years of experience in academic research and 3 years in commercial research.

My areas of interest are:
- Stochastic modelling: How precise is my laser scanner?
- Calibration of scanners
- Deformation measurement (algorithms) in geomorphology, crash testing and the built environment in general
- Registration algorithms (including the issue of sound quality assurance)
- Segmentation
- Viewpoint planning

I'd be delighted to contribute. Just send me a PM if I could be of any help.

All the best
