We wouldn’t have this type of client in traditional land surveying environment. Today, laser scanners are used on about 70% of our projects and we continually receive calls from diverse customers seeking answers that we can help resolve with HDS™

From golf courses to mine shafts, manufacturing facilities to city buildings, LandAir Surveying Co. in Roswell, GA is creating new and unique business opportunities with the help of high-definition surveying (HDS™) technology.
In business since 1988, LandAir Surveying specializes in site surveys and topographic surveys for a broad range of industries from telecommunications to transportation. A particularly challenging highway project prompted LandAir president, Tate Jones to invest in a HDS™ laser scanner.
Jones recalls, “We were asked to perform an as-built conditions survey of the I-20 Bridge over the Chattahoochee River west of Atlanta. Unfortunately the existing 8-lane bridge was so wide and long that we couldn’t achieve the necessary accuracy with conventional tools. HDS™ technology provided the necessary solution to this problem and many more since then.”
Today, the firm uses the HDS6100, HDS6000 and the ScanStation II laser scanners to facilitate projects that are both broad in scope and scale. The firm’s surveyors have scanned a 160,000-sq-ft manufacturing site, an extensive subsurface mine, an entire downtown and even the greens of a popular Georgia golf course to help map underground drainage pipes.
“We wouldn’t have this type of client in traditional land surveying environment. Today, laser scanners are used on about 70% of our projects and we continually receive calls from diverse customers seeking answers that we can help resolve with HDS™,” says Jones.
