Laser Scanning is just one of many tools that we use at GDM, however, it is often the tool of choice. No other device can capture so much information so quickly and accurately. Additionally, laser scanning takes on-site mapping to a whole new level by changing the field operatives decisions from, "what features do I map?", to "what area do I need to map?".
Through the use of laser scanning, GDM has gone from a land survey firm to a full service technical documentation firm providing services to disciplines involved in every phase of land management, construction, operations, demolition, and preservation sectors. Our Affiliations page provides examples of the wide range of clients that we serve through laser scanning. Additionally, our HDS Project History pages hi-light some of our past projects. For examples of some applications of laser scanning visit our Solutions Sheets page.
To understand what a quantum leap forward this is in mapping terms you have to see the raw data we can collect with our laser scanners. For examples of laser scanner data from the field to the various possible deliverables you can go to our Archive, YouTube site or join as a friend of our Facebook page!
