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.
