The laser scanning training day included a presentation discussing various types of 3-D laser scanners, precision, file formats, several options for point cloud processing and the target group of consumers for the service, with the final section providing a thorough overview of the more exciting surveys completed by OÜ Geo S.T.
In addition, the Leica C10 and Trimble TX5 laser scanners used by OÜ Geo S.T. and their accessories were shown on-site. Sample scanning and point cloud registration performed. All those interested were able to try out the instruments.
The first surveys have been completed, and the first impressions are very good. Trimble TX5 is a light, precise and very fast scanner enabling measurement at rates as high as 1 million points per second. Maximum measurement distance 120 m.
By combining the two scanners, we are now able to execute various laser scanning project much more efficiently.
From June to September 2013, scanning was carried out at Tartu Upper Secondary School for Adults and Pärnu L. Koidula Upper Secondary School undergoing reconstruction. Between the two school buildings, there was approximately 15,000 square metres of scanned floor area. On the surface scanned, the minimum point density ranged 2×2 cm. Scanning resulted in 3D models of the two school buildings using the Autodesk® Revit® program; additionally, floor layouts, sections and views of the building were prepared.
From July to August 2013, Geo S.T. OÜ carried out 3D laser scanning in Narva, scanning the external surface of the walls of Victoria Bastion.
Scanning resulted in the compilation of a detailed surface model of the wall using the AutoCad® Civil 3D® program in order to ascertain the volume of materials to be used in reconstruction.
In August 2013, Geo S.T. OÜ and AREVA NP concluded a contract to carry out engineering surveys during the construction of the 3rd nuclear reactor (FA3) being built at Flamanville, France.
Geo S.T. OÜ is providing survey services during the installation of reactor equipment and components requiring high precision.
On 3 September 2013, the company underwent a scheduled external audit of its quality management system, conducted by Andrus Vaher, Auditor with Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance.
The audit went very well, with no non-conformities (NC) detected. The results of the external audit have proven that the quality system of the company continues to operate effectively and meets the ISO 9001:2008 standard requirements.
Every year, the Krediidiinfo AS credit reference service, in collaboration with Experian, assesses Estonian companies based on their business performance.

According to the assessment provided, Geo S.T. achieved the credit rating of AA (Very good) in 2012 based on its financial information.
Geo S.T. OÜ was issued with the certificate of a successful Estonian company in 2013.
Geo S.T. OÜ and AREVA NP renewed the contract concluded on 9 August 2011 to continue surveying consultancy during the construction of the TSN1 and TSN2 nuclear reactors being built in Guangdong Province in China.
Geo S.T. OÜ’s surveyors are providing technical support for both the construction of a high-precision 3-D underlying network and the installation of reactor equipment and components requiring high precision.
24.05.2012 года компанией Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance (Регистр Ллойда) в лице аудитора Андруса Вахера на предприятии был проведён очередной внешний аудит системы управления качеством. Аудит прошёл замечательно, поскольку не было выявлено несоответствий (NC – nonconformity), необходимости в исправлениях (RC – Required Correction) и в улучшениях (SFI – Scope for improvement).
