3D laser scanning is a technology that has revolutionized the surveying industry. MJ has been providing 3D laser scanning for over a decade and has successfully completed hundreds of projects for highways, bridges and buildings. Laser scanning allows for collection of thousands of data points in less time and with lower cost than with traditional techniques, and permits development of high-quality, detailed mapping with true-to-scale imaging of all surfaces/objects in a project area. The scanned images can be utilized as 3D models or 2D documents and can be directly imported into 3rd party software.
3D laser scanning is a useful tool when it comes to new buildings as well as renovation and historic preservation. MJ has used the laser scanner on a variety of buildings and structures in order to develop highly accurate 2D models and as-builts. MJ has also utilized laser scanning on a variety of roadway and highway projects allowing for increased safety of surveyors, minimal traffic management, reduction of construction reworks and decline in schedule delays.
