Modern surveying using laser scanning can be applied i.a. in the field of building geodesy. The 3D scanning is particularly beneficial when surveying spatially complex historic buildings where the facades and interiors comprise of numerous decorative elements.
Similarly as in the case of a photogrammetric survey the laser scanning minimizes the time spent in the field. Preparation of the documentation takes place on a computer in 2D or 3D environment. The data usually have resolution of 5 × 5 mm, therefore it is possible to prepare both simple and complex documentation with all recognizable details, according to the order requirements.
