Scan data can easily be utilized to explore any spatial issue. Sight lines and environmental obstructions can be accurately evaluated. Viewpoints of drivers and witnesses can be identified, evaluated and demonstrated. Furthermore, objects within the scene can be removed or introduced, allowing exploration of various ‘what-if’ scenarios. For instance, it would be possible to evaluate the difference in visibility down a tree-lined street versus the same street with the trees digitally removed, or for various… read more →
Camera Matching – Photo and Video Reconstruction in a 3D Digital Model Photographs and video footage can be digitally reconstructed with a high degree of accuracy to obtain reliable information for analysis, such as measurements, speed and timing data, sightlines and more. By importing accident scene photographs or video footage frames into a dimensionally accurate digital model, characteristics or features that are present in scene photographs but are no longer available at the scene (e.g.… read more →
360° VIew and Measure As part of the data collection process, the laser scanner is set up in a variety of locations around an area. At each scan position, an integrated camera captures 360° panoramic photographs of its surroundings. Using our data viewing program, it is possible to virtually “walk through” the scene using these panoramic photographs. Additionally because these photographs are placed in relation to the scan data, you have the ability to easily… read more →
From Scan to Site Plan Once a scene has been scanned, standard 2D visual references like maps, plans and cross-sections can be extracted and produced from the scan data. The video illustrates how a horizontal slice of the scan data can be extracted to create a site plan of the area. The distance between any scanned points can be measured for accurate dimensions.
