Laser Scanning of Aircraft Hangars at RAF Lyneham

16th January, 2013

The Faro Focus 3D laser scanner has recently been used to carry out dimensional survey of five giant aircraft hangars at RAF Lyneham. Given the restrictions of other traditional methods in surveying such large and irregular structures, Landscope relied upon the Focus 3D to generate high resolution point clouds of each hangar both inside and out.

The scan of a single hangar was completed  by a single surveyor in just one day.

The point cloud data sets were subsequently used to create an accurate 3D model and generate accurate 2D floor plans, elevations and sections.
