• Glossary: Industry terminology for 3D Imaging systems
Includes ASTM E2544 - 10: definitions
• How Stuff Works: the principals of measurement with laser scanning and photogrammetry expressed in lay terms
Our aim with this Wiki is to help to define and codify key terminology in the laser scanning and 3D imaging marketplace and industry. People, places, companies, terms, technologies, products, and more will be defined here with input from experts throughout the industry. Please note that the ASTM Terminology entries we have licensed may not be edited directly on this site. Editing ASTM terminology is achieved through balloting procedures by ASTM members.

Base station: In the context of external land surveying, a base station is a GPS receiver at an accurately-known fixed location which is used to derive correction information for nearby portable GPS receivers. This correction data allows propagation and other effects to be corrected out of the position data obtained by the mobile stations, which gives greatly increased location precision and accuracy over the results obtained by uncorrected GPS receivers.
