Laser scanning is a relatively young 3D measurement technique offering much potential in the acquisition of precise and reliable 3D object geometries and geodata.
The Laser Scanner is a portable non-
The economic decision to use 3D imaging systems versus other methods depends on several factors. Important factors affecting the decision include project requirements (e.g., measurement uncertainty, resolution, level of detail), project schedule, and costs. The potential for multi-
For jobs involving simple geometries and readily accessible work sites, 3D imaging systems may not be the best choice. However, even if the alternative is less costly, 3D imaging may still be a better alternative depending on the expected use of the information. For example, the information may be multi-

The use of 3D Laser scanning for documenting existing conditions is the better choice if:
a high level of detail is required and complex geometries are found.
competing methods introduce safety risks as exposure to road traffic or toxic environments.
areas may be inaccessible or if there is limited space as in mechanical spaces.
3D imaging systems show existing conditions more completely than most manual methods.
ranges can be measured to non-
3D visualization and spatial analysis are at times essential in explaining and understanding complex or complicated conditions.
improved quality control and reduced documentation time is mandatory.
