called High Definition Surveying
( HDS ) or ground based Lidar, this technology can create
3 dimensional 'point clouds' of thousands of data points which
are collected in a matter of minutes.
cloud can be used to create the more familiar products that
most of our clients are used to working with, such as detailed
elevations, 2D topographical plans or sections.
3D computer models and fly throughs can also be produced.
As a non-contact or 'remote' instrument, site access may only
be required once and it may be possible to avoid hazardous

offshore platforms, oil and gas, chemical plants, power stations,
refineries, storage tanks etc..
