Role

  • Project Management

High definition laser scanning used to create 3D model

WSP performed a detailed survey of Edmonton International Airport for their Expansion 2012 project. High definition laser scanning was used in the area between gates 49 and 50 to produce as-built plans of exterior and interior spaces.

The two-phase control network was the base for the laser scanning. Three scans covering the exterior tarmac registered together with five interior scans to form a full 3D model of the area, complete with full structural details and key hardware. Cross sections taken through the model at specified locations produced plans and profiles for project architects and engineers.
