3D laser scanning
Laser scanning lends itself to all 3D survey applications where comprehensive, detailed and accurate information is required. Compared to traditional surveying methods, scans of the environment based on laser dot matrix and image overlay technology deliver a much higher information density in a shorter time. A 3D laser-scan survey was conducted of the Margarethen ice rink in Basel, with its over 120 rooms, and of the outdoor areas. The survey data were used to prepare floor plans, cross-sections, facade elevations and a plan of the external area, which then served as the basis for refurbishment.
