Few technologies have leaped from research lab to everyday use quite as rapidly as 3D laser scanning. Only a few years ago, this technology was a prototype method that captured fuzzy images of plant equipment. Today, the explosion in the quantity of high-quality laser data drives the parallel development of more powerful engineering software for extracting value from rich resources. Paradigm shift in E&C projects This transformation in information management is the result of a virtuous circle of demand and supply. Strong demand for 3D scanning in high-value sectors, particularly by the energy industry, encouraged equipment suppliers to innovate rapidly, driving the continual development
