Excerpt From On-line Article:
"One of the most important benefits in using a laser scanner on this project was increased safety on the construction site; more of the surveying could be done from safe locations without the need for attaching targets to structures using scaffolding or cranes. And the extensive amount of accurate, reliable data generated by the scanner proved to be very valuable. In fact, many times during construction, the point cloud data proved to be more useful than originally intended."
