    I'm currently studying Geomatics and I got to use this thing a bunch for multiple large projects. It was pretty neat to use, and super easy. Processing is also really simple and quite fun. Laser scanning technology is advancing insanely fast.

    • Jan Wallner
      Jan Wallner Month ago

      Nope it won't, (speaking for all the "Geologysts" though we like to call ourselves surveyors) because laserscanners can't position themselves automatically into a country's coordinate-system (you basically have to tell them where they are and how the scans data is oriented inside the country's reference-system).

    I can see this being very useful to insurance adjusters and restoration contractors for water repair estimates and large loss fires in taking the measurements and photos of the loss' origin in relation to other parts of the home. (for residential application). Some things to really take into consideration would be to integrate a kind of "rebuild" mode in the software to help in identifying what would be needed to reconstruct a loss, lets say a burnt building, the exact way it was prior to the damages, or to make estimating damages a lot more accurate and easy instead of having an inspector take a look at something for a couple hours; have this thing take measurements for a few min and get similar results.

    i had pretty good experience doing photogrammetry with a 15 year old budget digital camera. add an arduino controlled lego turret and a diy trigger and you got an automated room scanner. then let your computer crunch on the resulting data for 3 days and it looks great.

    Leica has some great equipment. I spent my career in Aerospace and we used Leica for our precision measuring. We never used this particular equipment because it was not accurate enough, our equipment would measure to within 0.002" (0.05mm) over 50 feet (15.25 M) distance. Cool stuff out there for sure!
