"Professionals know that virtually all of today’s laser scanning systems cost more than $100,000. They also know that these systems have heavy-hitting capabilities for quickly capturing roadways, sites, and structures with an extraordinary level of detail. Many professionals assume, therefore, that these high-end systems are reserved for use only on large projects; hence, they may waitfor a big project to appear before considering investing in or otherwise using the technology. In fact, although laser scanning systems are used on many large projects, the vast majority of projects done with laser scanning today are actually small projects.
This article will explore the aspect of 'project size' as it relates to the use of laser scanning systems."
