Photogrammetry has been made easy these days, just took around 10 minutes to take 50 high resolution (24 Mega Pixels) photos and run a pre-calibration on lens distortion and finally there we go; a 3D model of a 50 cm x 50 cm statue.
There is no more efficient way of doing feature surveys than using 3D Laser Scanning technology. Lots of benefits can be achieved; no revisit, 360 photos, point cloud, fly-through visualisation and lots of more..
This is our latest project going feature survey and as always we do we completed the job with 3D Scanning, simple is that! So, your client can ask for more information based on the captured scan data and eventually it saves them time and money. As a surveyor, you will ethically charge for office processing time ;).
