Topographic Site Surveys
Laser scanning (HDS) is a cost-effective means of performing topographic surveys. By capturing detailed site information, revisits are minimized and project accuracy is maximized. Scanning is also unobtrusive to ongoing activities at the site.
Scanning Beyond Retrofit Design

Topographic Site Survey
This particular project had a demanding schedule for providing final deliverables to the client. The company also faced a challenge in the office, as only one person was experienced at processing the scan data and he did not have the bandwidth alone to process all of the scan data in the time available. In order to address this challenge, Glahe decided to try new Cyclone II TOPO software with a new CAD Tech. The approach worked well - the CAD tech was able to learn Cyclone II TOPO in just one hour and become immediately productive. more
