That the mobile mapping is arguably a better choice than the traditional TLS (terrestrial laser scanner) systems, is already a given in the mapping and scanning sector in the construction industry. Still, many vendors today hesitate to provide mobile mapping solutions for BIM, which they absolutely need not. Today, we will discuss why should we use mobile mapping for BIM.
It is true, there are still a lot of second guessing going on about the quality of data the mobile mapping systems for BIM can provide. Also, there is the issue of transitioning from the traditional TLS to CAD or to BIM system to a modified mobile to BIM framework.
Thereby, most survey and scanning professionals wonder, would they lose valuable work-time downstream preparing the BIM deliverables? Today, we will discuss this issue.
3D Modelling of As-built Conditions in BIM
The demand for BIM is growing fast even though 2D CAD is still mainstream. This is especially true for large governmental…
