Langford & Rowe use Leica and Riegl surveying instruments. These include:

  • One-person robotic total stations
  • Digital levels
  • 10 GPS Units, including our permanent GPS base station (C.O.R.S) on the roof of our office.

Software used includes:

  • Topcon's CivilCAD
  • AutoDesk's AutoCAD, Civil3D and Map 3D
  • Riegl's RiScan Pro
  • Leica's GeoOffice and Cyclone

On top of providing clear and precise paper plans, L&R can convert the job into most formats (DWG, DXF, PDF, etc.) and emailed directly to you.

General Laser Scanning

What is Laser Scanning?

A scanner creates accurate three-dimensional images of real-world objects and existing conditions. It records millions of highly accurate, unique points by sweeping its beam over an area or object. The scanners X,Y,Z measurements are recorded and displayed as a "point cloud" which can be viewed, measured and navigated as a 3D model providing incredible insight into any job.

Applications of 3D Scanning:

  • Monitoring Surveys (bridges, buildings, tailings dams)
  • Surveying roads and highways (particularly with active traffic)
  • Pipeline and highway mapping
  • Topographic surveys (quickly cover large areas)
  • As-built surveys
  • Fuel Depots & process plants
  • Historical buildings
  • Volume calculations
  • Open-cut pits and stockpiles
  • Bridge as-built
  • Mining or landfill applications can be surveyed economically with resulting detail that would be difficult to achieve through traditional, ground-survey methods.

Benefits of Laser Scanning:

  • High accuracy
  • Faster results
  • Provides more detail which means less site visits
  • Much safer than conventional methods on certain surveys (e.g. stockpiles, tall buildings, working at heights, road surveys)
  • Surveys are completed quickly, therefore less downtime.
  • Reduced downtime onsites; non-contact survey method, fast field set-up.
