How 3D Land Scanning Can Accelerate Construction Projects

Construction teams, like those at PLCS Corporation, often rely on a large amount of personnel, equipment, machinery, and other tools to complete their land surveys. However, properties that feature large and complex landscapes can present a unique and difficult challenge to construction teams. The scale of such projects can make it difficult for construction teams to coordinate and complete land surveys quickly, efficiently, and accurately. Unfortunately, these struggles can lead to various issues that can cause a construction project to become delayed, lasting far longer than it needs to. Fortunately, a modern technology known as 3D land scanning has emerged to ease the difficulties of land surveying and accelerate the completion of construction projects. If you're interested in taking advantage of 3D land scanning technology for your next construction project, read on below to learn more about how 3D land scanning can accelerate construction projects.

3D Land Scanning Can Accelerate the Land Survey Process

Traditional field surveys involve surveyors exploring and mapping out a property's landscape throughout multiple visits. These surveys are susceptible to issues such as unforeseen features and difficulties with attaining the landscape data of hard-to-reach areas. The result is a land survey process that can take weeks, stalling the completion of a construction project in the process. Fortunately, 3D land scanning services can create a detailed and accurate map of an area's topology, completing the land surveying process in one visit. By eliminating the wasted time associated with field surveyor exploration and ensuring that the land surveying process can be completed in just a single day, 3D land scanning enables construction teams to move forward with their construction projects as quickly as possible. Ultimately, this advantage accelerates the completion of construction projects.

3D Land Scanning Can Eliminate Construction Errors

Traditional field surveys are subject to issues such as topographical changes that can occur over the duration of the survey and missing data due to being unable to reach and survey certain areas. These issues can cause a land survey to produce inaccurate or incomplete data for use in construction projects. This flawed data can cause construction teams to make poor decisions during construction projects. These decisions can lead to errors that can cause delays during a construction project, slowing down its completion. Fortunately, 3D land scanning produces extremely accurate and complete topography using millions of data points, eliminating the risk of construction errors due to missing or inaccurate data.


Traditional land survey methods can cost construction teams a significant amount of time, slowing the completion of construction projects. Fortunately, taking advantage of 3D land scanning has emerged as an effective way to ensure that doesn't happen!
