With an increasing demand for high accuracy data sets for a multitude of applications, Heading & Associates’ 3D Laser Scanning specialists employ the latest Leica scanning technology to produce complex 3-dimensional scans.  All in a matter of minutes at unprecedented levels of accuracy and detail. High Definition Scanning reduces safety concerns with the ability to safely capture accurate 3D data through its remote sensing technology, reducing the requirement to enter high-risk work areas.


Practical applications of 3D Laser Scanning include:

  • Industrial facilities – Plant & Pipework
  • Building Information Modelling
  • Forensics/Accident Investigation
  • Architecture & Heritage
  • Archaeology & Cultural Heritage
  • Asbuilts & Feature Survey
  • Topographical Mapping & Stockpile Volumes
  • Mine Surveying
  • Deformation Surveys
  • Point Cloud Visualisation
  • Reverse Engineering; Civil Engineering – roads, bridges, railway and etc


3D Laser Scanning advantages include:

  • High speed data acquisition - up to 1 million points per second
  • High accuracy data
  • Increased safety – reduces the need to enter high risk areas
  • Productivity gains over traditional survey methods
  • No contact measurement
  • Wide field of view for capturing increased data capture with fewer set-ups
