HD Laser Scanning Projects
New York State Thruway Authority
Williamsville Toll Barrier
The NYS Thruway Williamsville Toll Barrier experiences high volumes of traffic and generally all lanes must remain operational during surveying operations. PDG's laser scanner was the perfect tool for obtaining details of the toll barrier's steel canopy as well 3D positional information of E-Z Pass antennas.
Weed Physical Arts Center
PDG provided professional services to the College for a face-lift of Weed Hall. Laser scanning was used to verify slopes of a newly constructed sidewalk and parking area.
Building Information Modeling (BIM)
Laser scanning provides the basis for high accuracy BIM. The accuracy provided by the point cloud far exceeds traditional hand measurement of utilities. Points clouds offer high levels of detail and often eliminate trips back to project sites because of the amount of data captured. This type of data is also highly valuable in clash detection when integrating new equipment into an existing space.
