He explained that 3D Laser Scanning is a tool for collecting large amount of accurate data within a short time; in essence these scanners collect millions of individual point measurements having each point coordinates and color information. The 3D Scanning work can be performed from land with equipment such as Scanners set on tripods or from air using drones, equipped with various sensors including scanners, cameras etc. From the data collected, an array of drawings and detailed information can be produced and presented, such as 3D Solid Model 3D Intelligent Model including 3D Drawings, Sections, Side & Top views, Isometrics etc
