3D Spatial

Latest technology and unrivalled accuracy, providing tailored solutions.

Remote 3D Spatial allows the collection of geospatial information without making physical contact with an object. This is most commonly performed using aerial or satellite sensors employing a combination of photography, infrared, control-coupled devices (CCD) and radiometers. RADAR and LiDAR offer active 3D spatial by recording position judged by the distance between a sent signal and its return. Remote 3D spatial is beneficial for gathering information on hard to access or culturally sensitive areas.

Veris can provide scanning and 3D spatial services for a wide variety of project applications where precise data extraction and delivery are paramount. Our expert teams utilise the latest technologies to provide 3D spatial solutions specific to the needs of each individual project and client.

High Definition Surveys

High Definition Survey (HDS) also known as 3D laser scanning is a process which captures the real world as a highly detailed 3D point cloud. Our Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS) service captures and delivers high resolution, complete as-built data sets without disruption to workflow; reducing potential downtime and unnecessary exposure to risks on site.

Our Mobile Laser Scanning (MLS) service is an effective method for collecting field data to accurately map various Infrastructure projects including; road, rail, electrical transmission distribution, vegetation encroachment and structures/building facades. This data capture also provides highly accurate 360 degree imaging at high resolution, ideal for road dilapidation surveys.

At Veris, we can use laser scanning and imaging technology to provide faster and more comprehensive data capture than traditional survey methods. The versatility of these technologies and the ability to handle complex environments provides tangible benefits to our clients. Health and safety risks are reduced, outputs are accelerated and unrivalled completeness of data is delivered through rapid, non-contact data collection.

Aerial Surveys

Veris offers a comprehensive range of aerial mapping technologies supported by leading industry expertise to deliver aerial surveying projects of all sizes to clients.

We specialise in low level, high accuracy, high resolution imagery suitable for engineering design, volumetric computations and orthometric imagery to assist in exploration, flood studies and general project planning.

Our technologies include LiDAR for rapid high density precision surface definition, thermal sensors for ground temperature analysis and hyperspectral sensors for environmental assessment and monitoring. Clients have access to the most precise data needed to make critical decisions across the life of their projects.

Using advanced photogrammetric image processing techniques, a wide variety of deliverables may be produced; from geo-referenced ortho-imagery to dense 3D point clouds and digital terrain models. By utilising both fixed and rotary wing systems, our Group is equipped to cater for almost every conceivable requirement.

  • Fixed and rotary wing aircraft
  • High resolution ortho-imagery
  • Digital elevation models (DEM) point clouds
  • Mine and stockpile audits
  • Remote asset inspections
  • Environmental mapping
  • Archaeological documentation
  • Corridor mapping
  • Multispectral imagery

Underground Service Detection Surveys

Veris provides quality and efficient subsurface utility location and mapping services for a wide range of projects types and scales. Our innovative solutions integrate ground penetrating radar (GPR), electromagnetic induction (EMI), survey precision, asset documentation, potholing, drafting and mapping. In combination with our years of experience managing spatial data, we are able to provide comprehensive subsurface solutions. 

Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS)

Terrestrial scanning uses a ground-based or tripod-mounted light radar (commonly referred to as LIDAR) to create high resolution 3D images of surfaces and objects. LiDAR measures a scanned object by emitting laser pulses and recording the subsequent intensity of their return when reflected off it. Scanning can be performed over kilometres with sub-centimetre precision. Terrestrial scanning is commonly used for heritage documentation, 3D topographical surveys, accident sites, confined spaces survey and Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) models.


Our team of industrial metrology consultants provide mobile and flexible site services to provide industry with a platform to make well informed engineering and maintenance decisions.

Industrial Metrology

Precision, accuracy, repeatability, efficiency and industry knowledge are critical when manufacturing, maintaining or installing parts requiring exacting tolerances. Our team of industrial metrology consultants provide mobile and flexible site services to provide industry a platform to make well-informed engineering and maintenance decisions.

We maintain a comprehensive range of precision coordinate measurement technology - from Faro Arms with both tactile and 3D laser scanning capabilities through to large scale measurement using laser trackers.

  • Precision dimensional inspection and alignment of rotating machinery including turbines, mills and complex drive systems
  • Precision alignments of parallelism, straightness, flatness, concentricity and axial run-out
  • Geometric verification of components with direct CAD to Part and model based inspection techniques
  • Functional GD&T analysis
  • Deformation analysis for identification of warping, shrinkage and other manufacturing defects
  • Tabular, graphical and interactive dimensional conformance reports

As Built Plant Models

Our team of engineers and CAD designers specialise in the conversion of 3D scan data into accurate and detailed as-built CAD models.

Scan to BIM

We understand the complexities in the successful execution of developing as-built BIM deliverables which integrate tightly with our client’s work flows. We have developed robust in-house methods to ensure fully compliant BIM deliverables and levels of development that are fit for purpose.

The adoption of 3D Laser Scanning within architectural work flows has led to an ever-increasing need for an efficient method of transforming highly detailed 3D Laser Scan survey into intelligent models, suitable for implementation in BIM work flows.

Where fully intelligent models are not required, such as detailed heritage facades, our Group in-house CAD designers excel at extracting highly detailed models from 3D scan data for heritage documentation and digital archive purposes.

Mobile Laser Scanning (MLS)

Unlike Terrestrial scanning, which is performed from a static position, mobile laser scanning collects geospatial data from a mobile vehicle fitted with LiDAR, cameras and other remote sensors. This mobility can be provided by cars, trains, trucks, manned and unmanned aerial vehicles and boats.

Mobile laser scanning is used in emergency response situations to quickly assess the conditions on the ground, as well as for popular mapping projects such as Google Maps and Street View. Location services on smartphones rely on mobile mapping to plot the position of the phone.

We have the experience and the expert survey, planning and design team to provide mobile laser scanning services to all kinds of projects all over Australia.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Scanning (UAV)

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) can be used to collect geographical data for the creation of high density, highly accurate ortho-rectified photos, 3D models and point clouds. UAVs are particularly useful for the survey of difficult sites to enter, such as quarries, sandpits and landfills. High resolution geo-referenced images are collected and used to collect millions of data points in a very short amount of time.

As UAV aerial specialists, with access to unmanned aerial vehicles fitted with high resolution photo equipment, our expert aerial surveying professionals can map small or large areas such as mine sites, landfill facilities and more.
