Licenses & regulation; provide measurements6036

Bale100 private msg quote post Address this user
When providing Measurements or Point Cloud data from 3D
scan that will result in measurements - which translates into providing measurements / survey data, how are MSPs overcoming local Surveying Licensing regulations.

California example:

Certain countries and individual US States require licensed survey professionals with qualifications, work experience and licenses in place prior to being able to certify and issue documentation relating to building & land measurements / boundaries etc.

Interested to hear comments and how those interested in Scanning for BIM plan to overcome these issues - especially as AEC / BIM becomes part of Matterport’s proposition.

Wouldn’t a simple disclosure suffice?

IE, “This is not an exact measurement and is not to be used where exact measurements are required”

Or anything similar ??

Sure, in normal circumstances e.g. providing floor plans for Real Estate, then a disclaimer is typically accepted.

However, in Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC), these industries rely on accuracy within the instruments specified range.

Clearly the Matterport Pro / Pro 2 scanners are not capable of providing precision measurements and Matterport suggest an accuracy of within 1%.

However, once you combine other instruments as part of the scanning process e.g. Leica's BLK 360 (being pitched as a Prosumer survey tool) which has an accuracy of 6mm @ 10m, then it is likely that you will be held to these claims.

Interested in seeing how MSPs that operate in the AEC market plan to overcome regulatory barriers (licensed surveyor to provide measurements) & potential liabilities (inaccuracies) when / if they plan to offer Pro services to AEC e.g. Point Cloud data etc.
