Handheld LiDAR scanners are incredibly portable, simple to use and can scan as easily as moving through an environment at normal walking speed. This makes them especially practical for frequent scanning and for large areas.A great benefit of walking scans is that you are free to move the scanner around, so you can scan underneath and above objects.
We conduct our handheld scans using the Hovermap payload from Emesent, capturing up to 300,000 points per second and providing a point cloud with a high level of detail.
Handheld LiDAR scanning data can be used to:
Map the location of rock bolts, blast holes, equipment or pipe work
Highlight areas of water inflow
Measure displacement or change between two or more scans
Identify changes in geological units
Measure the thickness of a pillar or wall
Create an as-built model of buildings, excavations or infrastructure
In addition to our handheld scans, scans from multiple data collection methodologies can be merged to form a single model, which can help provide an even clearer picture.
