Special Applications in 3D Laser Scanning

Some 3d laser scanning projects require special applications due to limitations within the physical setting. Often times this is due to line-of-sight issues or when scanning must be done safely from the ground or a precautionary distance. Some examples of these applications would include above-ceiling MEP features in hospitals where it is necessary to maintain negative airflow, interstitial spaces that are highly congested, spiral staircases, equipment in operation or elevator shafts with limited access. Since laser scanning is a non-contact measurement tool (we can scan from a safe distance and location) this becomes a powerful tool for solving these complex challenges.
