This initiative is introduction of 3D Terrestrial Laser Scanner System for accurate and human intervention free measurement of the coal and Over Burden face in all major mines which is helping in accurate determination of volume of coal and OB extracted from the mines.
In November KCI purchased a RIEGL VZ-400 3D Terrestrial Laser Scanner. This portable surveying instrument can collect millions of data points within a 400 meter range in a matter of minutes. The scanner emits a light pulse outward towards a target surface and measures how long it takes for the beam to hit and return while spinning in a 360 degree pattern. The system calculates the beams horizontal and vertical angles and captures anywhere from 5 million to 45 million data points into a database called a point cloud. From each scan position a digital camera captures images which are used to color the scan points. The point cloud is then recorded into a 3D visualization program, and matched with the digital images to create a panoramic view. By taking multiple scans and using target traver...
Shafer Kline & Warren’s Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) scanning provides comprehensive, high-definition survey information with unsurpassed accuracy and efficiency. SKW’s LiDAR gurus Scott Confer and Patrick Crawford provide insight into LiDAR scanning, and how they leverage the technology to engineer solutions for energy and infrastructure. Many structures lack accurate as-built documentation or site data, and without this information, companies are unable to assess their current structures or perform facility modifications and updates. With scan speeds of up to one million points per second, LiDAR technology reduces the time needed to collect survey data and produce actionable data, which allows companies to complete projects sooner and meet tight deadlines. Additionally, LiDAR scan...
Focusing on automation and a smooth transition from the field to the office, RIEGL presents its 3D Scene Capture software RiSOLVE. Combined with RIEGL's VZ-Line of Terrestrial Laser Scanners, RiSOLVE provides a "one touch" solution for automatic registration, true-color processing and orthoplot generation. This new streamlined workflow with RIEGL's VZ-Line Scanners and RiSOLVE software establishes state-of-the-art true color 3D scene capture technology. Through proven performance of RIEGL's VZ-Line of scanners and smooth workflows in RiSOLVE, capturing complex 3D scenes is now amazingly simple.

The Addison Block House (8Vo193) is today part of the Florida Park System in Volusia County, and this early agro-industrial sites is an important part of Florida's heritage. The Addison Block House Historic State Park is managed as part of the Tomoka Basin Geopark. We would like to thank AIST researchers and field participants including Bart McLeod, Steven Fernandez, Joseph Conrad, and Joseph Evans were integral to this work. Jorge Gonzalez provided animations and 3D models for the Addison Blockhouse and is an important new addition to the AIST team.
This 3D VZ-Line Laser Scanner offers superior and unrivalled long range measurement performance of up to 4000 m reflectorlessly while still maintaining completely eye safe operation (Laser Class 1). RIEGL's unique V-Line technology is based on echo digitization and online waveform processing and is the key to enabling such extreme long range measurements. The VZ-4000 operates even in poor visibility and demanding multi target situations caused by dust, haze, rain, snow, etc. which are frequently found in difficult environments such as mine sites.
Advin developed its own innovative scanning vehicle. It is unique in the world. No other system is as accurate or reliable as Advin's system. Dynamic scanning makes it possible to measure roads, railways, dikes, canals, buildings and even complete neighbourhoods with high accuracy at speeds up to 120 km/h.
Scan to BIM as easy as never before! The video shows the workflow from scanning with the ZEB-REVO to processing in PointCab with the associated plug-in for Autodesk Revit. This revolutionary ZEB-REVO mobile indoor mapping system from GeoSLAM is easy to use and interesting in the field of BIM (Building Information Modelling). In interaction with the PointCab 4CAD plugins you get a complete solution for your Laserscanning and BIM project. - Capturing speed up to 8x faster than with terrestrial scanners - Time saving due to a fully automatic registration process - Simple and efficient 2D Plan generation - No point cloud conversation for CAD required - Intuitive BIM generation
Featuring the ZEB-REVO scanner from GeoSlam with our PointCab Software and newest Autodesk Revit Plugin. PointCab 4Revit plug-in enables a simplified, easy and intuitive BIM generation. The centimeter-precise three-dimensional measuring and digital capture of buildings is easier than ever before. The system in this example can be used anywhere and captures all data simply by walking. No mounting and alignment of classical laser scanners. High quality rendered 2D views are fully and automatically generated; a Top view, a front and a side view from which you can transfer the 3D points into Autodesk Revit with only a couple of clicks. This also works perfectly with any terrestrial laser scanner. For more information visit http://www.pointcab-software.com/en/

Richplanet TV: http://www.richplanet.net/index.php Published on 1 Dec 2015 In 2002 Gary McKinnon was arrested for remotely accessing files on NASA and military computer systems in the United States. Sitting in his bedroom in the UK using nothing more than a humble Windows PC with a 56K modem [sceeech Bulang Bulang Bulang sceech] he viewed the files of the worlds most powerful military organisations. Notice I have not used the word hacking, because in my opinion McKinnon did not need to do any hacking to gain access to these files. The files were publicly available for all ...
Laser Scanning Essentials
This presentation discusses the characteristics of laser scanning. The focus is on the integration of scanners into both terrestrial and airborne LiDAR data collection systems. The presentation was created as part of a peer-reviewed educational series of Reusable Learning Objects (RLOs) on LiDAR.

Description BBC to film a year in the life of an oak tree Dr Eric Casella from Forest Research (The UK Forestry Commission Research Agency) is working with the BBC on the production of a documentary which tells the story of an oak tree over a year of its life. Using innovative filming techniques, the programme will celebrate Britain’s most iconic tree, revealing its complex and fascinating biology and the lengths it goes to just to survive. Eric from FR’s Centre for Sustainable Forestry and Climate Change is working closely with Paul Sen and Nic Stacey from the FURNACE TV film and television production team. Eric says: “We visited the Wytham woods in January 2015 to laser scan a 400 year old oak tree as part of a scientific documentary coming to BBC Four in autumn 2015. The Production ...
