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.
