SKW’s professional staff have more than 10 years of experience with terrestrial LiDAR scanning in the energy, and infrastructure and development sectors.
Whether your company is preparing for equipment retrofits, system re-engineering, or facility restoration and maintenance, the precise 3D models and TruViews derived from terrestrial LiDAR scanning provide comprehensive data on structure size, specifications and integrity.
Many older and newly acquired facilities lack accurate as-built plans and site documentation. Without this information, companies are unable to accurately assess their current facility to modify or update it. With the ability to collect up to a million points of data per second, terrestrial LiDAR scanning reduces the time needed to collect information and produce actionable documents, which allows companies to complete projects efficiently and meet tight deadlines.
As an industry leader in engineering data and information management, SKW offers a seamless transition from LiDAR data capture to actionable output. Our end-to-end integration of surveying, engineering and construction offers companies a one-stop solution for scanning and design needs.
- Data acquisition speed:
SKW’s LiDAR scanners operate with scan speeds of up to one million points per second, collecting data in hours that would have traditionally taken weeks, if possible at all.
LiDAR scans produce positional data with sub-centimeter accuracy. When coupled with survey grade GPS control, the result is a comprehensive survey-grade record of the facility or structure.
- Comprehensive data:
Along with the specific points of interest associated with a project area, LiDAR efficiently collects survey-grade positional data on the surrounding facility. By creating a point cloud of the entire facility, the data can be geo-referenced and models can be generated and dropped into plans or construction documents for immediate or extended analysis and design for the lifetime of the facility.
- Access to hazardous areas with increased safety:
LiDAR’s line-of-sight scanning collects information on structures without having to physically reach them, allowing for data capture without putting personnel in harm’s way.
