Mobile laser scanning FAQs

What is mobile laser scanning? 

Mobile laser scanning is a technology that uses laser-based instruments mounted on a moving platform, typically a vehicle, to efficiently capture detailed 3D spatial data of the surrounding environment. It provides precise information about the shape, size, and location of objects, making it valuable for various applications, from urban planning to infrastructure development. 

Is laser scanning the same as LiDAR? 

While laser scanning and LiDAR are related terms, they are not precisely the same. Laser scanning is a broader category encompassing various laser-based measurement techniques, including LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging). LiDAR is a specific technology within laser scanning that uses laser pulses to measure distances and generate detailed 3D maps. Therefore, LiDAR is a type of laser scanning. 

What is the difference between terrestrial laser scanning and mobile laser scanning? 

Terrestrial laser scanning and mobile laser scanning differ in their approach to data collection. Terrestrial laser scanning uses stationary laser scanners placed at specific positions to capture data within a limited range. Mobile laser scanning, on the other hand, involves laser-based instruments mounted on moving vehicles, allowing for continuous data collection along a route. Mobile laser scanning is often more efficient for large-scale spatial data acquisition.
