3D laser scanning in North NJ


Are you looking for 3D laser scanning in North NJ? Omland & Osterkorn, Inc. has been providing 3D laser scanning in North NJ to receive accurate data for buildings, land zones, surveying structures and site information. Our engineers use 3D laser scanning data to help them plan and develop with more accuracy.


What exactly is 3D Laser Scanning?
3D Laser Scanning is a non-contact, non-destructive imaging that digitally captures the shape of objects using a line from a laser beam. By using laser light (LIDAR technology), 3D Laser Scanning captures spatial data which collects the position, shape, and spatial locations of objects. This data is recorded by millions of points, each with an X,Y,Z coordinate, causing the creation what is known in the industry as a "point cloud". The LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology that 3D Laser Scanning uses emits a laser light at an object and analyzes the returns by calculating the time of flight of the beam.

Since the level of detail captured by 3D Laser Scanning is very high, this data gives point coordinates down to millimeter of point spacing, while most topographical surveys collected with GPS and conventional surveying usually give a single point with an XYZ coordinate anywhere from 10-50 feet apart.
3D Laser Scanning is a vital part of the way we gather information on the engineering projects we perform. Our firm has used 3D laser scanning technology to collect accurate measurements to improve highway and road design, to achieve accurate surveys of buildings, industrial plants, bridges and other structures that need detailed information and measurements.

Our use of 3D laser scanning has made collecting data much safer than having our engineer and surveyors producing the necessary data because of some situations might be risky to take accurate measures. By using 3D laser scanning we have surveyed busy street intersections, gathered data on leaning structures and monitored erosion and other imperils that could harm someone who tries to collect information after a natural disaster had occurred in that area.
