Provide heritage and preservation services with 3D laser scanning solutions
Create accurate digital records of any heritage asset
To preserve our cultural and natural heritage for future generations, 3D laser scanning opens the door to document, study, understand and monitor any element or site of our cultural world heritage.
With the Leica Geosystems 3D laser scanning solutions, surveyors around the world can measure with precision and high resolution any historical monument or building. Point clouds can be converted into 3D mesh models which can be archived in case structures are damaged and need to be restored to their former glory. Datasets can also be used to understand all possible risks a monument or structure might face.
The deliverables produced with 3D laser scanning can be used beyond heritage. The information can also be used to help expand the scope of heritage projects, engage sponsors and even increase both physical and virtual tourism.
Best 3D laser scanning solutions for heritage and preservation
A complete workflow
Leica Geosystems provides surveyors with the tools they need to capture, process, manage, collaborate, consume and deliver point cloud data.
Process your captured 3D scan data in the industry-leading 3D point cloud processing software Leica Cyclone.
Collaborate and share easy access to point cloud data for anyone in your project ecosystem, with Leica TruView.
Get the highest accuracy
Capture any historic site, monument or building with survey-grade accuracy, even under the toughest environmental conditions without missing any detail.
Supporting surveying workflows like traversing and resection, the P40 supports surveyors to get the highest accuracy.
