Liying is a graduate surveyor with City of Ryde, and is currently doing laser scanning investigation in the survey team. She was chosen from council’s team of skilful surveyors to increase productivity, and quality of survey deliverables through the utilisation of the laser scanning technology and integrating with existing workflows and software resources of the Design Department. Liying has a master degree in technology and innovation management and she did her thesis in mobile laser scanning. As a skate-boarder, you might see her cruising past you one day in the park with a handheld scanner.
Laser scanning has been rapidly developing and now widely adopted to a variety of applications due to its fast data capture and voluminous detailed dataset. As a council survey team, City of Ryde has been investigating this technology for a few years and has faith in high-technology to provide better services. Finally in 2018, a TX6 was purchased to help with the transformation of existing work methods using innovative technology. This presentation will compare the survey differences between laser scanning and total station with respect to a complex parallel road survey with meridian islands, and also to provide some examples of potential 3D uses such as seawall design and work as executed survey. City of Ryde survey team provide daily survey support to our internal clients, including but not limit to detail survey, engineering survey, cadastral boundary survey, monitoring survey and so on.
