Haag Global, Inc., offers Laser Scanning & 3D Documentation and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to our insurance and legal clients. 

Laser Scanning & 3D Documentation

    3D Laser Scanning (3DLS) is a technology that uses a laser light to digitally capture an objects exact size and shape, shown in a 3-dimensional representation. The information produced from the laser scanner is known as “point cloud” data. The 3D model or shape of the object is made up of millions of points documenting the entire surface of the object. On average, a scan records one million points every second. Point clouds are highly accurate, precise and measureable points of the surface of the object. Laser scanning is safe, fast, non-destructive and does not interfere with any other work or activities going on near the object. Point cloud data can be imported into multiple software platforms for further analysis and modeling and is viewable without the need for special software.

    Deliverables are tailored to the individual needs of each client:

    • Post-processed point clouds can be directly exported to AutoCAD, Revit, NavisWorks, MicroStation, Rhino, and other CAD platforms
    • Point clouds can be geo-referenced to existing site dimensional survey control

    Advantages

    • Non-destructive, non-contact data capture technique
    • Reduce costly ‘return’ site visits
    • Rapid data capture of large volumes with increased accuracy
    • Measurements can be made quickly and easily
    • Point clouds can be checked and measured using free viewing software, from any scan location
    • Digital records

    Geographic Information Systems

    Geographic Information System (GIS) is a powerful tool that allows companies to combine large amounts of data from different sources, order them into layers, and visualize the relationships between the datasets. Imagine looking at a map of a newly planned community and being able to overlay roads and traffic patterns, demographic information, spending habits, water sources and areas of drainage problems, topography, flood zones, weather contours (hail/wind/surge), voting habits, and a whole host of information that allows users to make informed decisions based on reliable data.

    By providing access to these types of relationships rooted at a particular location, GIS gives users the ability to deeply analyze information and identify trends that can lead to process improvements. Static, stand-alone data is transformed into dynamic overlays that promote better decision making, improved communication, and increases in efficiency for all aspects of the organization. It also offers competitive analysis so businesses can distinguish themselves from the competition. There is no doubt that a GIS can greatly benefit any organization through the use of substantially improved information and data visualization.

    We deliver quality documentation products and in-depth analysis tailored to meet the individual needs of our clients. We facilitate better decision making and increased profitability by helping users make sense of the data they see every day. Through the integration of spatial analysis, business intelligence, and the latest in geospatial technology, our analysts combine data from multiple sources and create a visual representation of accessible, useful information. By turning raw data into valuable information for our clients, we empower them to succeed and grow their businesses. 

    Our geospatial experts are passionate about helping clients achieve success through innovative ideas, cutting-edge technology, and unparalleled customer service. Call or email Kevin Kianka or Marcie Deffenbaugh to discuss how GIS can benefit your project today.
