Recent studies by the Construction Industry Institute have indicated that for a typical $100 million construction project, between $500,000 and $1million is spent on keeping track of where things are on the site and monitoring the status of construction activity. The emergence of scanning lasers has made real-time updates and earthwork calculations of the construction site a viable technique. The gathering of data is non-intrusive and will not impede the construction progress. The scanned data are imported using the import module.
