Underground 3D Laser Scanning for Piling Design

13th July, 2017

To ensure safe design of a piling scheme for a new development in Exeter, LandScope was recently requested to survey the alignment of two culvert systems beneath the site.

In order to meet the survey objectives within the limited time window available – given that each culvert was temporarily dammed – LandScope proposed the use of its Faro Focus 3D laser scanner. The light weight, portable and exceptionally rapid LiDAR data set acquired by the Faro Focus provided the appropriate balance of accuracy, resolution and quality check.

Once registered and geo-referenced, the laser point cloud allows the surveyor to further measure and model in 3D – in this case being line and level.
