Typical purpose of interiors scanning is a 3D project documentation, determining the actual dimensions of the construction, BIM (Building Information Modeling), creation of virtual galleries, and tours for real estate agencies. The outputs are also suitable foundation for further interior planning.
Terrestrial laser scanning (TLS)
TLS is the most appropriate method for scanning interiors and places with poor lighting conditions (i.e. a metal). The advantages are accuracy, speed, and point density. Using this technology we can measure up to 1 million points per second.
We use this technology to supplement data from TLS. We use it primarily to capture details with high resolution (i.e. furniture), or in parts of interior where we would not be able to fit the laser scanner.
Panoramic imagery is the simplest method out of the three, as it provides 2D rather than 3D images. The downside is that we cannot make accurate measurements using the data, neither achieve unlimited movement in space, nor provide 3D project documentation. The advantage is speed and simplicity of capturing 360° panoramic images in high resolution. Panoramic imagery sample
Cutting edge technology
We use cutting edge technology of Close-Range photogrammetry, laser scanning and panoramic imagery. The advantage of these technologies is that they represent contactless scanning methods. It means that the surface of interior furniture does not get disturbed due to influence of measurement device or its service personnel. In case of Close-Range photogrammetry and panoramic imagery, we use full-frame cameras with resolution of up to 50 Mpix, placed on automatized panoramic heads. In places with poor lighting conditions, we also use high-performance powerful flash system.
