Dynascan mobile mapping and surveying of land, coastal and waterway areas
Dynascan offers efficient, high-accuracy mobile 3D mapping capabilities, even in extreme environments.
Working with Dynascan has helped surveyors in a range of industries survey large and difficult-to-access areas, while working cost effectively.
A safer, easier, more cost-effective way to survey
Our Dynascan range offers a unique solution in the mobile lidar scanning market, and is available either to buy or to rent. Our systems are lower in price than those offered by other companies, yet backed by remote diagnostic support and functionality-rich software. Alternatively, you can hire our team as operators or on a project consultancy basis.
With a rotating head giving 360° scanning, high accuracy and the compact incorporation of leading global navigation satellite system (GNSS) and inertial measurement unit (IMU) technology, Dynascan models deliver the performance, portability and price customers need to complete work efficiently.
High-grade resistance to water and dust means Dynascan units can be used safely, accurately and without damage, where previously surveying was hazardous or time consuming.
The small size and weight of Dynascan models make them versatile enough to deploy on a range of vehicles or vessels. You can now dynamically survey areas of limited or difficult access, including steep narrow tracks, parks, small river tributaries, and narrow waterways.
Dynascan contains no delicate scanning mechanisms or rotating mirrors, and is designed to operate in the world's most extreme environments.
Dynascan is built to industrial specifications and with an all-weather design that ensures the system will operate after long trans-shipment journeys, minimising downtime on the job and time spent in the repair shop.
No heavy or cumbersome mounting brackets are needed, and all sensors are factory calibrated and aligned inside the pod.
One cable from a Dynascan pod to the rugged laptop eliminates the cabling problems associated with other surveying equipment.
Dynascan models can hook up to the vehicle or vessel battery system, needing a 12 to 36 V dc supply.
Fully featured software
Dynascan systems come with a fully featured software suite, which supports the user during initial project planning and real-time 3D data acquisition, through to final processing, quality control and reporting.
For ease of integration into existing workflows, data can be exchanged with third-party applications via a large number of industry-standard formats (e.g. DXF, XTF, GeoTIFF, GSF, BAG, ASCII, LAS).
Integration with other sensing technologies is also catered for, with the software allowing seamless acquisition from a variety of other sensors, such as a GPS receiver, an IMU, a camera, a multi-beam echo sounder, or a side-scan sonar system.
