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...
Shattuck St. Mary’s boarding school utilized laser scanning to revamp their outdated construction documents into 3D CAD format. The project was an excellent example of the value of terrestrial scanning. Using highly accurate 3D scan data generated with 3D scanning you are able to view as-built documentation in a virtual world. The point cloud data can also be surfaced to generate a CAD model which can be used for comparison or reconstruction.

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...
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.

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.
This professionally produced HD video illustrates how laser scanners work and describes which scanner features are important to consider, the topic of "registration" or stitching multiple scans together, and what type of support is available for implementing the technology. Highlights of key Leica Geosystems' scanner features are described and a high-level overview of software is given.

Sarah Kandrot (Phd Researcher, Department of Geography, University College Cork, Ireland) is talking about her research using Terrestrial Laser Scanner for monitoring changes in the morphology of sand dunes at Rossbeigh, Co. Kerry, Ireland. Filming and editing by Dr Max Kozachenko (Lecturer, Department of Geography and Coastal & Marine Research Centre, University College Cork, Ireland).
The following diagrammatic animation outlines the differences between traditional field measuring practices vs. terrestrial laser scanning. In addition, it shows the Enhanced Analysis Capabilities, and advantages allowed by laser scanning, and the collection of point cloud data.
RIEGL VZ-400/ VZ-1000 in three application examples: Scanning of the Millennium Tower and St. Peter's Church, both in Vienna Austria, and in Forestry Assessment. The V-Line 3D Terrestrial Laser Scanners RIEGL VZ-400/ VZ-1000 provide high speed, non-contact data acquisition for ranges up to 600m/ 1400 m using a narrow infrared laser beam and a fast scanning mechanism. High-accuracy laser ranging is based upon RIEGL's unique echo digitization and online waveform processing, which allows achieving superior measurement capability even under adverse atmospheric conditions and the evaluation of multiple target echoes.
The necessity for monitoring geo-risk areas such as rock slides is growing due to the increasing probability of such events caused by environmental change. Europe is one leader in survey technology, due to well-established providers of measurement systems and frameworks. In Europe, rock slides cause increasing damage particularly in alpine areas. DE-MONTES provides an efficient, highly automated, high-resolution, terrestrial, long range sensing measurement and analysis system which is able to monitor geo-risk (and related) objects by means of non-signalized natural target points -- which is a key to such systems due to the lack of reachability and the required distance-to-the-object. Even novel sensor concepts such as terrestrial laser scanning can only cover a subset of the requirements, ...
Terrestrial scanning is a useful surveying tool that can help to accelerate natural gas development.
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.
A short course last August at the Indiana University Judson Mead Geologic Field Station in Montana brought together 21 geoscience field instructors to learn about incorporating terrestrial laser scanning (TLS; sometimes called ground-based lidar) and structure from motion (SfM) photogrammetry into geoscience courses with field components. Both methods can be used to generate high-resolution, three-dimensional topographic models that can be applied to hazard assessment, geomorphic change detection, and stratigraphic sequence analysis, to cite a few examples. In this scene, meeting attendees were scanned from a single position by a Riegl VZ-1000 scanner. The entire scan took a few 10s of seconds and the laser was only on a given participant for seconds. The final scan resolution was less th...
Engineering geologist, Pete Hobbs, explains how the British Geological Survey landslides team use Terrestrial Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR). LiDAR is a land-based laser scanner which, combined with a highly accurate differential GPS and camera, enables us to produce 3D computer models of landslides in coastal areas.
