3D Technology Expands Business

High-definition scanning equipment has formed the basis for a new division, called geomatics, at White Shield, a Pasco-based geospatial consulting firm.  The technology uses remote laser scanning to provide three-dimensional measurements from a distance and can also be used to determine volume. The result is a 3D, survey-quality point cloud data model and a full panoramic image of the object measured.  The technology has been used to measure everything from overpasses for highway construction projects to the inventory of wood chips at a paper mill. The company also uses ground-penetrating radar equipment and geographic information systems software for mapping and analyzing spatial data.
