Versatility and Laser Scanners

The "Hidden Instrument" Inside of Laser Scanners
"Versatility - The Other 'Hidden Instrument' Inside Laser Scanners," was written by Geoff Jacobs and printed in the October 2004 issue of the Professional Surveyor magazine.
Text Excerpt:

"Many professionals think of 3D laser scanners in terms of capturing scenes with high point density. The captured data can be processed to represent surfaces, such as terrain, or to represent objects, such as piping and steel shapes. There is another application of laser scanners that is rapidly gaining popularity among many users. It’s based on what one might call a 'hidden instrument' within a laser scanner, a hidden instrument that is essentially another form—a very powerful form—of a reflectorless total station."
