SI2G S.r.l. (which stands for Sistemi Informativi Intelligenti p er la Geografia, or “Intelligent information systems for geography”) is a spin-off of Marche Polytechnic University established in 2008 by researchers with many years’ experience in the various disciplines involved in the study of terrain and the environment based on computer science and photogrammetry. The company deals with the acquisition, analysis, processing, archiving and distribution of “environmental data” in digital format, using an integrated systematic multidisciplinary approach. It provides services such as remote scanning of terrain, photogrammetry, topography, cartography and ICT.
Eva Savina Malinverni, Associate Professor of Topography at Marche Polytechnic University, explains how SI2G recently came to invest in a Laser Scanner Focus3D, the innovative laser-scanning tool from FARO that provides extremely precise yet simple 3D scanning
The FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D is actually a very compact device, weighing barely 5 kg and measuring just 24 x 20 x 10 cm. A technician can carry it around wherever and whenever it is needed. What’s more, the WLAN technology makes it possible to start, stop, view or even download scans remotely.
The imperial city of Huế, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993, is probably the largest and most famous architectural site in all Vietnam. It was from here that the emperors of the Nguyen dynasty ruled from 1802 to 1945. Its design was based on the imperial palace of Beijing and comprises walls, moats, fortified gates, bridges and decorations that make it a truly atmospheric setting of great artistic and historic value. “Scanning it would have been very complex and time-consuming had we used the normal photogrammetry techniques.” The FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D, on the other hand, enabled the SI2G team to complete the work in just a few hours and to obtain truly astounding results with just 17 scans.
Thanks to the FARO Laser Scanner Focus3D, a highly flexible tool that is very quick and easy to use, the technicians at SI2G S.r.l. were able to scan the magnificent East Gate of the imperial Vietnamese city of Huế, capturing every detail of its form and geometry with the utmost precision, despite the difficult weather and operating conditions.

The ETDP conference presents cutting-edge views on how the three elements that support construction work—people, processes and technology—can be integrated and organized for moving into digital projects. Only through digital projects can the industry strive to achieve effective outcomes in increasingly complex construction endeavors.
We will present our latest version of the revolutionary, high speed FARO Laser Scanner Focus 3D for 3D measurement and 3D image documentation together with the accompanying software SCENE that processes and manages scanned data easily and efficiently by using automatic object recognition as well as scan registration and positioning.

With 2,800 stores, the DM pharmacy is one of Europe’s largest supermarket retail brands and is continuing to grow by around 10% annually.
In order to allow efficient building management, DM has measured the premises of its 1,350 German stores. To ensure the data was captured efficiently, quickly and accurately, the company opted for a solution using 3D laser scanners.
Complete documentation of the store areas and ancillary rooms enable optimum management of the areas, while shelf planning and modification measures can be arranged efficiently.
With the three-dimensional measurement, the joiners obtained the very latest store data, allowing for new photographic counters to be planned precisely in advance and their individual elements to be fitted accurately.
During the 3D Documentation Conference in Andechs the participants are given the opportunity to visit the 3D exhibition in an designated area at the Abbey and meet FARO’s 3rd party partners, who showcase their latest 3D Documentation products.
The Award Ceremony for the best idea about the future of laser scanning (developed during the teambuilding) took place at the Florianstadl in Andechs. Below you’ll find the best impressions from the evening event.
Yesterday’s impressions from the workshops and brainSTORMING at FARO’s 3D Documentation Conference in Andechs – from the Middle Ages into the bright future of 3D laser scanning…
The fourth European 3D Documentation Conference takes place in a beautiful scenery in Bavaria. Seen from miles around atop Holy Mountain above the eastern bank of Ammer Lake, Andechs Monastery is the oldest pilgrimage church in Bavaria and since 1850, an asset of the Benedictine monastery, St. Boniface, in Munich.
The participants of FARO’s User Meeting noticeably enjoy the conference at the Monastery and its amazing surroundings.
In the afternoon workshops of our 3D User Meeting, participants go into detail choosing from a range of themes around architecture, mobile mapping, factory design and software. Stay tuned for more in-depth content later in the day.
Our morning at the Abbey was full of exciting stuff with 3 power speeches in the Florianstadl featuring industry experts on:
• Large 3D Scan Documentation in Retail
• Laser Scanning Gomantong Cave: creation of the world’s most complex photorealistic cave model
• An Airbus experience: 3D modelling in part environment
In the coming 2 days we will provide you with the latest from the world of 3D documentation and laser scanning technology.
The conferece started this morning with the industry and FARO news by Managing Director Ralf Drews. Then we kicked-off with keynote Bernd Becker, Chief Technology Strategist about the latest 3D Documentation technology news.
