Scanning behind a dropped ceiling using mobile LiDAR

Surveying buildings is difficult and accessing hard to reach areas, like dropped ceiling or raised floors, without disrupting business can be seemingly impossible. In this blog we’ll discuss how SLAM and LiDAR technology has made scanning behind dropped ceilings a simple process.

Where in the World is LiDAR Being Used? Top 6 Uses from 2021

With increasing awareness of LiDAR technology, its applications are becoming more diverse. From helping to prevent natural disasters to mapping historic caves and restoring architectural wonders, our ZEB laser scanners have been involved in a range of interesting projects over the past 12 months.

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. Using GeoSLAMs ZEB Horizon, GeoTerra’s goal was to map both areas accessible to the public and the narrow spaces just big enough to crawl through – a system of caves measuring 300metres long and 50metres wide.
