FARO Announces ScanPlan Automatic 2D Floor Plan Mapper - 18/09/2018


FARO has announced the ScanPlan handheld floor mapper. The scanner weighs about three pounds and runs for two hours on a single swappable battery. The package includes the FARO Zone 2D diagramming software, which means users can mount a smartphone on the handheld device to get real-time feedback about the capture in process.

‘This solution, which also includes 2D floor mapping software, is specifically designed to generate quick 2D floor plans for public safety users such as emergency responders, fire and crime scene investigators, and security managers. However, a tool like this should have a number of interested users outside the public-safety space.’ says FARO.

To generate floor plans, first, the user walks through the building at a normal speed, pointing the device at walls. Using the software, users can add notes, or take photographs as needed to note the location of objects like control panels, sprinklers, and so on. Next, users combine floor plans from different levels into a single project, and view the results or take measurements as needed. Last, the user generates 2D or 3D diagrams using the software’s smart tools.
