This week I'll be heading downtown to scan a building. There is a tower on one of the corners that reaches a height of approximately 60 feet, and I'm not too sure how to go about scanning it. I know for a fact that my scanner (BLK 360) won't be able to reach the parapet with a scan from ground level, but I think the addition of another scan at about mid-height might do the trick. My best idea I have come up with would be to elevate the scanner with a scissor lift, and activate the scans remotely with the iPad.

What are your experiences with tall buildings?
What should I look out for?
Are there any better suggestions how to go about doing this?

Thank you in advance
I really dont recommend use BLK360 on distance higher than 30 meters,look at hardware specifications from manufacter. Use instead Trimble SX8 because it have high angular accuracy
30 meters is under 60'. Not sure what your getting at here. Plus Trimble stuff sucks. I'd use a P40 if I was that worried. Why not an RTC360.
