HDS / Reality Capture
Often, survey sites are challenging: they may be dangerous or inconvenient to map, or simply be inaccessible with standard equipment. However, new solutions are changing what’s possible. Autonomous reality capture can replace humans with robots in dangerous conditions. Small mobile mapping solutions can be attached to cars, boats, and UAVs to open up better angles, while the longer ranges on static, survey-grade 3D laser scanners are putting surveyors well out of harm’s way.
