The Range, Swansea
On its own this is a typical survey of a large format retail shed. However this does not tell the full story. Swansea marks the first occasion where we successfully deployed our Faro Laser Scanning system in an operational retail environment. Precision Laser Scanning depends on the placement of spheres and checkerboard targets throughout the survey scene. In low populated spaces this occurs without challenge, clearly not the case in a busy store. Evolution of scanning has brought about cloud to cloud registration a procedure that works without spheres and it was here, in Swansea, we first tested the approach. This effectively opens doors to doing similar with all retail projects and to that end this project will always be a landmark moment.
