Reality Capture, UAV, Photo, & LiDAR Mapping
TEC is committed to using the latest technology available when it will be beneficial to a project. Recent advancements in software allow TEC to create complete rendered 3D models and point clouds using high resolution photos collected from the ground or UAV's (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles). This technology along with LiDAR data collection is known as Reality Capture. The data can be used to create mapping and plans for engineers, architects, planners, landscape architects, and more. Deliverables can include architectural elevations and floor plans, existing conditions and as-built mapping, topographic mapping, .obj files, point cloud data, and more.
When conditions are not right for photogrammetry, the use of LiDAR (laser scanning) can save time, increase accuracy, and be safer than traditional survey methods. LiDAR can collect as many as a million points a second and the data is extremely comprehensive. TEC utilizes ground based, mobile, and aerial based LiDAR as needed. On many projects LiDAR and Photogrammetry are combined to produce the final product.
