Laserscanned buildings.

In The Centre of Excellence in Laser Scanning Research (Academy of Finland CoE 2014-2019), more than 30 Dr.Sc./PhD's from Finnish Geospatial Research Institute, University of Oulu, University of Helsinki and Aalto University aim to create new knowledge, science, openings and breakthroughs in the emerging field of Laser Scanning (LS).

Our research covers the full complementary technology chain of Laser Scanning: hardware electronics, system integration, positioning technologies, information extraction and data processing, applications and visualization, even in the 3D game engine of smartphones.

Latest news and more information on laser scanning and the Centre of Excellence can be found at

With the status of CoE-LaSR, we will, together with our co-operators, focus on the following goal:

Laser Scanning is omnipresent and affecting positively to the life of every citizen in modern information society by early 2020
