Terrestrial 3D scanners

Terrestrial 3D scanning, also known as terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) or long-range laser scanning, is a form of 3D scanning that uses tripod-mounted laser scanners to capture outdoor environments and large objects.

These laser 3D scanners are commonly deployed in disciplines like surveying, construction, and forestry, producing more accurate (but slower) captures than mobile scanners.

Terrestrial scanners, which often use LiDAR (light detection and ranging) technology, must be moved to various points around the target area before software combines the point clouds from the various scan locations. Prices are usually in the tens of thousands of dollars.
