Laser or Lidar scanning is a technology for obtaining and processing information using active optical systems (lasers - lidars) that utilize the phenomenon of light reflection from objects to conduct high-precision measurements of X, Y, Z coordinates.

LIDAR Aerial Survey is a type of survey that allows creating a digital 3D model of an object or building by representing it as a set of points with high-precision spatial coordinates. This technology employs laser scanners (lidars) that measure the coordinates of surface points of the object at high speed (up to several tens of thousands of points per second). The obtained set of points is called a "point cloud." For each point in the laser scan, X, Y, Z coordinates, and the intensity value of the reflected signal are determined. The "point cloud" is colored based on the intensity of the reflected signal, resulting in a 3D digital photo-like representation after scanning. Nearly all modern laser scanner models (lidars) have an integrated video or photo camera, which allows coloring the point cloud with real colors.

LIDAR aerial survey can be divided into aerial, terrestrial, and mobile scanning methods.

Uses of Laser Scanning (Lidar aerial survey):

Aerial Laser Scanning (ALS) is a technology that involves high-frequency laser beam irradiation of the Earth's surface, including ground objects, from any aerial vehicle (airplane, helicopter, gyroplane, UAV) to obtain a "point cloud" of coordinates. ALS is used to create topographic plans of linear and planar objects in scales of 1:500 to 1:5000, digital terrain models (DTM), and digital elevation models (DEM). Usually, ALS is accompanied by simultaneous aerial imagery with a resolution of 5-15cm in the visible and near-infrared ranges. It is mainly used for engineering surveys of infrastructure objects, urban planning, volume calculation of moved earth (quarries, waste disposal sites, etc.), and monitoring various types of objects.

Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS) is used to obtain detailed 3D models of objects, create facade plans, and large-scale topographic plans from 1:50 to 1:500. Terrestrial laser scanners allow capturing objects as small as 0.5cm with an accuracy of up to 0.5mm, enabling the determination of spatial coordinates of object points. TLS can be performed at any time of the day. Productivity can reach up to 4000m2 for facade scans at a scale of 1:50 and up to 20 hectares for topographic plans at a scale of 1:500. TLS is carried out from ground-level objects or from a tripod in a discrete mode (with device repositioning). This laser scanning method is successfully used in closed spaces and environments (tunnels, caves, etc.) and is ideal for complex structures and interior scans.

Mobile Laser Scanning (MLS) is performed from a ground or waterborne platform in continuous mode (moving platforms). The method allows for limited short-term operation in closed environments (passing under bridges, short tunnels). MLS is ideal for urban areas.

This type of laser scanning is typically used for comprehensive mapping and 3D modeling of linear infrastructure objects (roads, railways, power lines, streets in settlements, pipelines, etc.), complex and highly detailed planar objects (settlements, interchanges, multi-level viaducts, rocky shores, lower dam abutments with watercraft, etc.). The accuracy ranges from 5 to 8cm, object detailing from 1 to 5cm, and productivity can reach up to 500 kilometers of scanning per day (scanning swath width from 50 to 250 meters). A drawback is the inaccessibility to scan the roofs of objects, and objects close to the platform (fences, bushes) may hinder the scanning process.

The mobile laser scanning technology combines the speed and data volumes of aerial scanning with the accuracy and detail of terrestrial scanning. The technology of conducting scans while in motion is used for creating cartographic materials, inventory, monitoring, and recording the condition of extensive infrastructure objects.

Goals and Objectives of LIDAR Aerial Survey

The main objectives of LIDAR aerial survey include:

  • Creating a topographic base for project exploration and geological exploration works;
  • Producing drawings for construction companies;
  • Creating executive schemes;
  • Analysis of an object's behavior during operation;
  • High-precision measurements of engineering structures;
  • Creating and updating large-scale maps and plans;
  • Generating digital terrain models (DTM) and digital elevation models (DEM) (raster - GRID, vector - TIN);
  • Building mathematical models using the intensity of laser pulse reflections;
  • Generating orthophoto plans based on classified ground points;
  • Developing project and technical documentation;
  • Creating 3D models for complex construction projects (bridges, interchanges, ports, stations, airports, quarries, etc.);

Thus, laser scanning is mainly required in:

  • Construction;
  • Oil and gas industry;
  • Mining industry;
  • Highway and railway sectors;
  • Archaeology and architectural heritage restoration;
  • Documentation of emergency situations.

Advantages of Using Laser Scanning Data

The laser scanning technology is not dependent on the intensity of illumination in the environment and can be used both during the day and at night. It offers high image resolution compared to other methods and practically no geometric distortions. This technology easily integrates with other remote sensing methods and allows:

  • Thorough examination of objects from a distance;
  • Creating high-resolution 3D terrain models with precision up to 1 cm. Laser scanning results in a dense "point cloud" (hundreds and thousands of measurements per 1 m²), enabling detailed analysis of object features. The accuracy of laser scanning is comparable to ground geodetic measurements and far exceeds the precision of aerial imagery;
  • Obtaining true terrain relief;
  • Creating topographic plans and maps in areas with no ground reference points (tundra, completely snow-covered territories, deserts, sandy beaches, etc.);
  • Creating vegetation classification, including recognition of its species and condition.

Advantages and Disadvantages of MLS Technology

Advantages of MLS:

  • Three-dimensionality of data (all collected data have three-dimensional coordinates);
  • Variety of result representations (from 3D point clouds to plans and 3D models);
  • High accuracy and detail (0.5 cm accuracy);
  • High productivity of scanning operations (much faster than instrumental surveys). Substantial reduction in fieldwork time and costs;
  • High mobility of the system;
  • No need for obtaining permits for scanning;
  • The system can be installed on various types of transport (car, railway car, boat, etc.), eliminating the need for expensive aircraft rental in aerial scanning.

Disadvantages of MLS:

Presence of shadow zones during the scanning of certain objects (relief elements, such as ditches, roadside curbs, buildings, etc.), which can be mitigated through field inspections or integration of scanning data (aerial, mobile, and terrestrial) and previously conducted surveys.

YES. We work with individuals and legal entities, Individual Entrepreneurs, state and municipal authorities, foreign customers and others.
Initially, lidar object data was obtained exclusively in ASCII format. With the accumulation of large amounts of lidar survey data, a binary format called LAS was put to work and became the standard format for organizing and distributing laser data. It is now quite common to see lidar data in LAS format. LAS is the most appropriate format because files in this format contain more information and, being binary (binary), they can be read more efficiently on import.

Such data is called Terrain - it is a surface based on TIN (Triangular Irregular Network) with variable resolution, constructed from measurements stored as spatial objects in a geodatabase. They are typically created using LiDAR and photogrammetric sources. Terrain datasets are part of a geodatabase and include objects used to create them.

Common classes of spatial objects that function as data sources for Terrain include:

  • Multi-point classes of spatial objects: 3D point clouds created from data sources like LiDAR.
  • 3D point and line classes of spatial objects: Created on photogrammetric workstations using stereo imagery.
  • Study area boundaries: Used to define the extent of the Terrain dataset.

Terrain dataset rules control how objects are used to determine the surface.


The accuracy of the equipment is no more than 1-2 mm. This is very high compared to traditional measuring technologies.
Terrestrial laser scanning is the most modern method of field investigation. It is a new technology that avoids unnecessary waste in further design and construction. In complex cases, it is the only possible way to obtain accurate information about the configuration of an object, for example, in hard-to-reach places. With the help of laser scanning it is possible to create an actual digital model showing the state of the object in detail. By rotating the scanner horizontally by 180°, a full sphere is scanned except for the field below the device itself. After the data cloud is processed by the computer, distances to points and their coordinates become known, and a real-time visual model of the surrounding space is created. The number of points in the array can reach several tens of millions, so the real-time image of the object is as accurate and reliable as possible. To combine individual scans into a single field of points, special stamps are used. During processing, all scans are combined - stitched together - to produce a point cloud containing detailed information about the building parameters. This is the final product of field work. Later it can be used for various purposes - three-dimensional modeling of the object, determination of its geometry, clarification of deformations of parts or individual structures.
Before traditional methods such as theodolite surveying or measurements with a laser rangefinder, 3D scanning possesses the following advantages:
  • Quick acquisition time;
  • Obtaining a large amount of information about the object;
  • High speed and accuracy of measurements;
  • Completeness of the acquired information;
  • Simplicity in the application of the equipment;
  • Applicability of the survey results for various purposes;
  • Possibility to conduct surveys both during the day and at night;
  • Remote data acquisition, ensuring safety when surveying hard-to-reach areas;
  • Data storage in electronic format, enabling its use for reconstruction, modernization, or monitoring of building, structural, and architectural deformations.
As for the disadvantages, the following can be noted:
  • Impossibility of surveying in the absence of visibility;
  • Challenges in scanning glass structures or completely smooth surfaces;
  • Lack of geodetic georeferencing. The scanner cannot independently determine its geographic coordinates, thus requiring the use of other geodetic instruments, such as a theodolite or GNSS receiver;
  • Dependency on weather conditions.

During LIDAR aerial survey is carried out from several points of the scanner installation. Necessary settings are pre-set to perform measurements in automatic mode with a specified discreteness (laser beam pitch) Laser scanning is a modern method of taking accurate geodetic data to obtain 3D models of objects. It is necessary to use special equipment to carry out the work, which allows you to obtain highly accurate data on objects. Laser scanning companies can provide a wide range of surveying, surveying and design services for buildings and structures. They use state-of-the-art scanning technology to obtain accurate data, which allows them to create accurate 3D models of objects and speed up the work of creating projects. Laser scanning also allows you to survey existing buildings and structures, determine their condition and make repairs if necessary. With the help of the obtained data it is possible to create drawings of objects, taking into account their design features and parameters. Laser scanners will also help to determine the optimal conditions for the construction of new facilities, taking into account the geological and geodetic parameters of the territory. Thanks to the use of laser scanning, specialists can obtain accurate data about objects, which facilitates design and allows to speed up the work of creating projects. As a result, laser scanning is an indispensable tool in the design and construction of buildings and structures, and geodesy and specialized equipment help to carry out these works even more accurately and efficiently.

Three-dimensional modeling is used to create digital models of objects:

  • that require reconstruction or major renovation, with complex spatial planning solutions, irregular axis intervals, and varying number of floors;
  • that are cultural heritage;
  • such as elevator shafts and collectors;
  • of industrial facilities with complex configurations;
  • of structures in the oil and gas industry (tank calibration and more).

Lidar and remote sensing allow scanning of urban environments and monitoring landscape changes. The obtained data is processed and converted into a point cloud, which is used for creating 3D models. The accuracy of measurements and data processing enable the application of laser scanning in various fields, such as topography, cartography, engineering surveys, and industrial safety.

Laser scanning has also found applications in architectural design, construction, and reconstruction. With precise geometry and the ability to create 3D models, more accurate drawings can be produced, reducing errors in the design process. Virtual reality and computer vision enable viewing objects from different angles and planning projects more effectively.

An essential component of laser scanning is GIS, which allows for analysis and management of the scanned data. Additionally, the use of aerospace technologies and accurate positioning improves the quality of the obtained data.

In general, laser scanning and point cloud processing are essential tools in the modern world, providing accurate data and its utilization in various fields, such as topography, cartography, engineering surveys, and industrial safety.

Laser scanning of buildings (or laser scanning of surfaces, LIDAR - Light Detection and Ranging) is a technology that allows you to create a three-dimensional model of objects and surfaces with high accuracy and detail. The application of laser scanning of buildings can be useful in many industries such as architecture, construction, engineering, surveying and others. The working principle of laser scanning is to measure the distance between the instrument and the object using a laser beam. The laser beam is directed to the surface of the object, reflected from it and returned back to the instrument. From the delay time of the signal, the distance to the surface of the object can be determined. When scanning buildings with a laser, all visible surfaces of the building are scanned. The resulting data is used to create an accurate three-dimensional model of the building, which can be used for various purposes, such as design, repair, restoration or to create a virtual tour. One of the main advantages of laser scanning of buildings is the high accuracy and detail of the data obtained. This allows the creation of accurate three-dimensional models of buildings that can be used for a variety of purposes. In addition, laser scanning of buildings can be carried out relatively quickly, which saves time and resources when designing or renovating buildings.
  1. Creating 3D models of objects and buildings - laser scanning allows for the creation of accurate 3D models of buildings, which can be useful for design, renovation, and construction purposes.

  2. Quality control of construction works - laser scanning can be used to verify whether the completed construction meets the design parameters and requirements. This can help detect errors in construction and address them in a timely manner.

  3. Determining the volume of work and cost estimation - precise data obtained through laser scanning can be used to calculate the volume of work and estimate construction costs.

  4. Monitoring the condition of buildings - laser scanning can be employed to monitor the condition of buildings and detect damages or deformations in their structure.

  5. Creating virtual tours - accurate 3D models of buildings, created through laser scanning, can be used to create virtual tours of the buildings, which can be beneficial for tourism or educational purposes.

In summary, laser scanning is an important tool in construction that can help expedite the construction process, improve the quality of work, and reduce costs.

A scanner is a device that is used to obtain accurate data about the surface of an object. A scanner can be used in various fields such as medicine, engineering, architecture, and manufacturing. A scanner can obtain precise measurements of an object, including size, shape, and structure. Scanners come in different types including laser, optical, ultrasonic and others. Laser scanners are one of the most common types of scanners that use a laser beam to measure distances and create point clouds. Scanners can be used to generate accurate data that can be used to create 3D models of objects and buildings, quality control of construction work, scoping and costing, monitoring the condition of buildings, and creating virtual tours. One of the most common applications of scanners is laser scanning, which provides accurate data about the surface of an object using a laser beam
LIDAR aerial survey involves using airborne laser sensors to collect high-precision three-dimensional data of the Earth's surface. It differs from other remote sensing methods by providing detailed and accurate elevation information with exceptional vertical resolution.
LIDAR technology works by emitting laser pulses towards the Earth's surface and measuring the time it takes for the reflected light to return. It captures detailed elevation information, allowing for the precise mapping of terrain, vegetation, buildings, and other surface features with high accuracy.
LIDAR aerial survey is commonly utilized in applications such as topographic mapping, forestry, urban planning, and infrastructure development. It contributes to infrastructure planning by providing accurate and detailed information about the terrain, enabling engineers and planners to design projects with a thorough understanding of the landscape.
LIDAR aerial survey offers advantages in environmental monitoring by providing precise information on vegetation structure, land cover, and terrain characteristics. It supports the assessment of ecosystem health by aiding in the identification of changes in vegetation density, habitat mapping, and monitoring of landforms in various environmental contexts.
The integration of LIDAR data with GIS technology enhances the analysis and interpretation of aerial survey results by allowing for spatial analysis, visualization, and data integration. This integration provides a comprehensive platform for decision-makers to analyze elevation data in conjunction with other spatial information, supporting informed decision-making in diverse fields.
