SiteScape acquired by FARO
FARO Technologies, a global leader in 4D digital reality solutions, today announced the acquisition of SiteScape, an innovator in LiDAR 3D scanning software solutions for the AEC and O&M markets. SiteScape enables LiDAR-equipped mobile devices to easily capture indoor spaces digitally, providing a readily available entry point to scanning physical spaces for a broad range of applications.
Integrating SiteScape’s iOS-enabled low-resolution LiDAR capture capability into the FARO Sphere Platform is a further step in streamlining multiple capture methods into a centralized environment to be accessed in a single environment on a single coordinate system. This unique capability enables FARO’s construction and facilities customers to access the widest portfolio of reality capture methods in the market, which now ranges from low-resolution Lidar to 360-degree photo, video, mobile mapping, and terrestrial laser scanning.
“We are pleased to add SiteScape and its ground-breaking 3D LiDAR scanning software to our portfolio of reality capture solutions,” said Michael Burger, FARO President and CEO. “With millions of LiDAR-enabled mobile devices already in the market, the addition of SiteScape opens up a significant population of users to the benefits of FARO’s reality capture solutions.”
“I’m excited to add SiteScape’s proprietary software to the FARO family of cloud-based offerings. FARO accelerates our vision of enabling a broad set of customers with the ability to gain critical insights from their digital reality environments,” added Andy Putch, SiteScape CEO.
