Combining UAV Photo Point Clouds and Terrestrial Laser Scanning in ReCap 360 Pro

Collapse Expand


Terrestrial laser scanning enables accurate capture of complex spaces, such as the interior of factories, hospitals, process plants, and civil infrastructure. Reconstruction of 3D shape and appearance from unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)-based photographs enables operators to rapidly capture exterior structures and their surroundings. Merging these technologies helps users quickly and accurately capture their entire facility—including impractical areas such as rooftops—and provide outdoor context to indoor scans for complete site mapping. We will present workflows for combining terrestrial scan data and UAV photo models into a unified point cloud for visualization, interrogation, design, modeling, and analysis. We will highlight how operators can capitalize on the accuracy and reliability of laser scanning through UAVs’ capability to quickly capture expansive environments in great detail, and provide reality-captured context to improve downstream workflows in AutoCAD software, Revit software, and InfraWorks software. This session features ReCap 360. AIA Approved
