The accuracy of a BLK3D in-picture measurement is influenced by four variables:

  1. Distance to the object being measured.
  2. The baseline between the 3D images used to calculate the measurement points
  3. The orientation of the camera to the object being measured
  4. Light conditions, structure and texture of the object

First and Foremost

The closer you are, the more accurate your measurements will be.

But managing such a complex infrastructure had its challenges - from costly road closures to interpreting hand drawings from the 1960s. ARNI had its work cut out, so they turned to the latest reality capture technology, the Leica BLK360, to create accurate 3D point clouds and images of their projects.
