5 Reasons Why it is Time to Invest in Mobile Mapping

Whether your firm offers laser scanning services or you have an in-house scanning role for a larger company, mobile mapping will transform your business. Here are 5 reasons why it’s time to invest.

This is the third part of a series for experienced laser scanning professionals who are considering adding a mobile mapping system to their toolset.

In previous articles, we discussed what a mobile mapper is, and seven benefits it can bring to your scanning workflow compared to a terrestrial laser scanner (TLS).

In this post, we’ll talk about 5 reasons why it’s time to invest in one of these cutting-edge tools, and how they can transform your day-to-day work.

1. Mobile mappers will increase your scanning efficiency

Let’s say you’re set to perform a medium-to-large sized as-built documentation project – for example, a 5,000 sqm office building that includes a variety of spaces like staircases, small rooms, cubicles, long corridors, and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) rooms.

In this scenario, investing in a mobile mapping system can speed up your project significantly. As we discussed previously, these devices are capable of capturing buildings at up to 10x faster than a TLS.

NavVis VLX, for example, can capture 1,000 sqm of complex office space per hour, meaning the project mentioned above would take about five hours of scan time to complete.

Additionally, where a TLS workflow can require two operators, a mobile workflow can be completed with only one operator. This enables you to free up valuable staffing resources to take on more projects.
