Laser scanning for volumetric measurements

The management of natural resources requires ongoing monitoring and regular controls; licence-holders for the extraction of materials, quarries or landfill sites will need to determine the quantities of products involved.
In comparison with conventional topographic surveys, laser scanning offers the benefits of an incomparable speed of data acquisition and superior accuracy in volumetric calculations.
Reports and data delivered by Urbica in conjunction with its services will allow the determination of tonnages, the completion of inventories, the updating of fees, etc.
