3D Laser Scanning - McKim & Creed Engineering Firm

This allows for precise measurements of even the smallest details, and eliminates the need for survey crews to return to the site to pick up missed or more detailed data. With the advent of laser measurement, modern surveying has evolved more in the last five years than in all previous centuries combined. Except these aren't merely static images; these images hold spatial information that, in essence, digitizes the environment into CAD.
