Mapping the Future – The Now or Never pod with Willmott Dixon

GeoSLAM were invited by Willmott Dixon to be involved with the beginning of this process, by scanning the existing used timber units provided by Carter Accommodation. Using the ZEB Revo RT, Willmott Dixon were able to capture data of all 4 cabins, in 4 minutes, registering over 8 million number of points.

Poole’s Cavern

Chartered land surveryors, GeoTerra were invited by the BCRA (British Cave Research Association) to scan the cavern, so they could gain a better understanding of the geological formation.
