3D Laser Scanning
3D laser scanning remotely captures the complete three-dimensional geometry of objects, properties and sites. A huge amount of detail can be collected in a short period of time and the detail is highly accurate. It is high accuracy mapping or reality capture, that quickly captures rich detail of an entire scene.
- 3D Data Capture
- High Definition
- High detail
Murphy Surveys is the most experienced suppliers of this technology in Ireland and the UK today.

Benefits of 3D Laser Scanning
- Remotely capture data from potentially hazardous sites, e.g. motorways or structurally unsafe buildings
- Fast data capture; critical on sites with limited access, e.g. crime scenes
- Complete data collection enables further investigations to be carried out later on without costly returns to the site
- Reduces the costs and downtime associated with construction rework, site revisits and field changes
- 3D Laser Scanning is a lower cost survey method compared to alternatives
- Improved accuracy and precision reduces the risks associated with project execution
- Highly-detailed data improves decision-making and engineering designs
- Enables 3D Modelling and Building Information Modelling (BIM)
Exclusive Techniques & the Latest Equipment
Murphy Surveys Laser Scanning department have developed our own exclusive, in-house 3D surveying and CAD/Revit modelling techniques.
Ongoing investments in the latest technologies enable us to cut costs and risks for our clients. We were the first company in Ireland to invest in Leica’s P20 Laser Scanner. We recently acquired a Z+F 5010C Laser scanner with HDR capabilities and are the first survey company in Ireland to purchase Leica BLK 360 Laser Scanner.
We have an array of systems available to meet any requirement, including the Mobile Mapper (vehicle-mounted), Aerial LiDAR, Terrestrial and Handheld.
We use a portable coordinate measuring machine with integrated laser scanner for close range laser scanning. This technology is a fully integrated high definition 3D measurement solution for applications that require metrology grade precision.
