ANALYZING OF THE TERRESTRIAL LASER SCANNER GEOREFERENCING USING GNSS

Hasan A. Jaafar

Abstract


Recent years have witnessed emerging the cutting-edge method for point cloud creation using terrestrial laser scanner (TLS). The TLS manufacturers declare accuracies of their instruments up to the millimeter level. However, different constraints could degrade the accuracy of point cloud created by TLS. One of the obvious factors that may directly affect the accuracy of the results is a method of registration and georeferencing. In this paper, the indirect georeferencing using GNSS has been researched. The real time kinematic (RTK) technique has been suggested to measure GNSS points. The conducted test shows that average of 30 minutes data RTK-GNSS is enough to coincide with TLS data. Also, test reveals no improvements when adding more GNSS points. Nevertheless, there is an improvement in accuracy when more scans are conducted.
