Chapter 1 – “The Basics”
is an overview with film
footage of scanning in the field and processing "point clouds" in the
office into drawings, models, etc. It also describes common mapping and
as-built survey applications, benefits, types of deliverables and options that

Chapter 2 - “How It All
Works”describes how laser
scanners work (including new animations), what scanner features are important
to consider, the topic of “registration” or stitching multiple scans together,
and what type of support is available for implementing the technology.
Chapter 3 – “Simple
Projects and Complex Projects”
