Laser Scanning Videos: From the Basics and Beyond


Leica Geosystems has produced this educational 3-part video series in HD about 3D laser scanning – aka high definition scanning (HDS).

Part 1 Laser Scanning: The Basics

This first video in the 3-part series on laser scanning includes film footage showing real-life field use for scene capture and in-office processing, turning your scans into deliverables such as drawings, models, etc. The series also describes common applications, benefits, options that users have for taking advantage of the technology, and how Leica Geosystems fits into the overall picture.

Part 2 Laser Scanning: How it All Works

The second video in the 3-part series illustrates how laser scanners work and describes which scanner features are important to consider. Also discussed is the topic of “registration” or stitching multiple scans together, and what type of support is available for implementing the technology.

Part 3 Laser Scanning: Simple and Complex Projects

This final video in the 3-part series describes simple and complex laser scanning projects and how the technology is applied for each. Laser scanner and point cloud software features are highlighted that help users take advantage of the technology for simple projects and for more complex sites and advanced deliverables. Several visual examples are included and Leica Geosystems’ role in the technology is explained.
