Laser scanning instruments have been developed that will provide topographic detail of structures and
facilities at an extremely high density, as shown in Figure 2-8 above. These tripod-mounted instruments
operate similarly to a reflectorless total station. However, they are capable of scanning the entire field of
view with centimeter-level pixel density in some cases. A full 3D model of a project site or facility
results from the scan. This model must be edited and feature attributes added. See Chapter 10 for
additional descriptions of terrestrial LIDAR survey procedures and applications.
