Aerial c360® for Site Inspections

From hi-resolution photographs of a construction site.  the resulting image allows the user to zoom in and out for detailed review as well as view 360 degrees...  c360®!

Less expensive option than using photogrammetry or Lidar, it gives a project manager a bird's eye view of the construction site without having to travel to the location.  This service can be performed periodically to help keep up with work progress and construction goals while staying in budget.

These are perfect for record keeping, proof of state, and many other uses.

We provide our clients with the option to use a web based viewer for the laser point cloud data.

Our c360® LASer View is a platform independent product which allows clients to manipulate and view point cloud data of their sites, without the hassle of managing the high volume of data that these models generally bring.

No expensive software to purchase and runs on almost any platform, customers can view the point cloud data from anywhere they have a high speed Internet connection.
