Terrestrial laser scanning is an accurate, efficient, and fast method of providing deliverables, and topographic surveying such as contour maps, raw data for technical analysis and databases, spatial cloud data, and digital elevation models. It works on the principle where a sensor releases a laser beam continually towards an object, receives it, and then calculates the size of the object.

Terrestrial laser scanning, which is also referred to as light detection and ranging (LiDAR), is regarded as being an effective method for capturing 3D data. Terrestrial laser scanning is an ideal and efficient method to obtain real-time data of large areas and objects in a short span of time. It is used in surveys to collect complex geometric data from buildings, machines, and other objects. While terrestrial laser scanning technologies have been used in the past for modeling and surveying complex systems in a factory, it is now used in media and entertainment, residential building construction, road construction work, in-door surveying of commercial buildings, museum layout preparation, and small-scale topographic surveying, to collect real world data.
