Archaeology and Historical Preservation Laser Scanning

3D Laser Scanning (or High Definition Surveying) is the ultimate measurement tool,
and with it we save our clients time and money.

Darling Geomatics has worked with some of the country's top companies

Archaeology and Historical Site Surveying

  • Stay Under Budget - 3D laser scanning is fast,  highly accurate, and reduces field time compared to traditional surveying.
    Accurately Reconstruct Spaces - Pin-point data and models at your fingertips so you have a complete picture of each property and asset.
  • Survey from Your Desktop - Eliminate the need to send a survey crew to re-measure. Everything is accurately captured and ready for you to survey from your computer.

We Scan Your Project

We come to you and scan your job site. Millions of data points capture every detail from buildings, equipment and signs to foliage, gutters and curbs. There's no interruption in your workflow or day-to-day operations.

We Do the Work

Our engineers convert the captured data into the deliverables of your choice, from point clouds and TruView images to 3D Revit Models and 2D AutoCAD . Everything is accurate to within .6 cm and to your exact specifications.

You Get Deliverables

You receive models that show the true conditions of the space and can be measured from any point. Survey everything right from your desktop.

The Value of 3D Laser Scanning for Archaeology and Historical Preservation.

Darling Geomatics (Darling) has used laser scanners on a wide variety of historic and archaeological sites over the years. We respect both the cultural significance as well as possible fragile physical conditions that are often present.

These types of sites are well suited for 3D laser scanning. They often have structures or ruins that are very sensitive and require careful evaluation before any work is done. Sometimes, data is needed in order to catalogue existing conditions for documentation or scientific study. In any case, laser light is the preferred method for collecting data of current conditions. Darling's laser scanners can map out complex areas easily and can track the smallest changes over time - without endangering ruins, artifacts or historic structures.

Historical renovations and repairs are particularly suited for 3D laser scanning. Highly accurate true to scale as-built data is collected rapidly. Areas that are fragile benefit in that laser scanning is not intrusive. We can collect spatial data without touching the objects we scan and without endangering personnel or structures. Darling has scanned both historical buildings and archaeological sites.

We deploy mid-range and close-range scanners, depending on the complexity of the object, to ensure a high-resolution 3D recording even when dealing with intricate facade sculptures or ornaments. We are able to guarantee an exact evaluation of the raw data, resulting in a high-resolution 3D model.
