3D Cave Scanning: The challenges of 3D scanning underground

Working in darkness
Moving underground, without equipment, can be a challenge on its own. Add a £100,000’s worth of 3D laser scanning equipment into the mix and it can test the mettle of most.

Photogrammetry underground, in mines and caves, presents a lighting challenge that is matched by few other scenarios (short of filming underwater). Caves and […]

2016 Lidar GeoMapping Events

2016 is going to be an exciting year for Lidar / GeoMapping with events taking place throughout the year, across the globe. Here is a list of 2016 events so far. It’s not a complete list but a great starting point.

3D Scanning Services Cumbria

What is 3D laser scanning?
A 3D scanner is a laser emitting device that analyses and records a real-world object or environment by collecting information on its x/y/z co-ordinates, shape, proximity and even its appearance (e.g. colour). The collected data can then be used to construct digital three-dimensional models. Commendium Ltd, based in Cumbria, uses a Riegl VZ400 on a Gitzo tripod to ensure a high level of detail and great coverage when performing its scanning services. It’s an expensive, but robust, system with a range of 1.5 – 600m – meaning we can get a larger area recorded in with less scans – in a short time frame.

Of course, scanning is just the first part of the process and work is done to the scan data in order to output it all in a format that is most suited to its intended purpose. […]

SEO – Why bother with it?

What is Search Engine Optimisation?
Apart from being a term that cold callers use when they ring you at inconvenient times, it’s also one that describes improving your discoverability online.
Google (other search engines are available) is a supplier of answers. You type your search request and Google gives you the best match that it can for […]
