COMPARISON OF LEICA BLK360 AND LEICA BLK2GO ON CHOSEN TEST OBJECTS

Abstract. The contribution deals with the comparison of two laser scanners manufactured by Leica company. In BIM modelling, there is a need for fast and accurate gathering of spatial data, e.g. point clouds. Those data can be gathered by photogrammetry or laser scanning. Last years on the market, there occurred some light and easy-to-use alternatives to classic laser scanners. There were chosen two scanners that belong to the easy-to-use category. The first scanner is stationary Leica BLK360 and the second scanner is Leica BLK2GO which is a handheld scanner based on SLAM technology. Both laser scanners were tested on three different test objects. The first object is an administrative building, the second object is a historical administrative building and the third object is the vaults of the church. In all cases, only the indoor side of the objects was measured. The point clouds were compared to each other and the comparison was discussed. The parameters derived from the point clouds were also compared to the parameters read in the original documentation of the object. The comparison of the parameters may show, how those point clouds are usable for the final BIM modelling.
