High Definition Survey

HDS is a State of the Art Technology in 3D Surveying, utilizing a laser scanning method. It has revolutionized surveying by delivering digital models and as constructed drawings based on electronic measurements. With HDS NECI can provide project representations to-scale, down to a single-point of +/- 4 millimeters. The unit captures HDS photos and point cloud information in real time. HDS digitizes the area being scanned into millions of dots called the Cloud Image. Using HDS, NECI can provide more information for equal to or less than traditional surveying cost to our clients.
