Industrial Measurement Services

Using the Most Advanced & Efficient Methods

Since 1913, T. Baker Smith has been the region’s go-to source for surveying land and waterways in and around our communities, bringing innovation, efficiency and accuracy to every project. We accomplish this using highly accurate total stations and industrial measurement software to ensure your projects run smoothly from start to finish.

Our industrial measurement services include laser scanning and dimensional control surveying. Let’s take a closer look at these services and what you can expect from them.

Laser scanning is extremely popular among surveyors today due to its ability to rapidly and accurately collect large amounts of data using high-tech laser measurements. When performed well, this process mitigates a variety of safety issues that often exist with other types of surveying and measurements, and also creates significant cuts to expected project costs. The data collected from laser scanning surveys can then be used to create accurate three-dimensional point cloud representations of the area being surveyed.

Dimensional control surveying provides land surveyors with real-time, three-dimensional results while out in the field. The technology has extremely accurate total stations and software to ensure all dimensions and tolerances are to the appropriate standards.

Surveying Solutions

Find the Solution for You

  • Boundary & Topographic Surveying

    We use the most up-to-date, efficient methods for collecting and staking data points for property and topographic surveys.

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes laser scanning so accurate?2020-12-07T14:59:14-06:00

Many other types of surveying that rely on tape measures or other types of manual devices can be subject to errors. Laser scanning equipment is designed to be extraordinarily accurate, down to millimeters. It captures up to a million data points per second to provide an outstanding level of detail and accuracy in its surveys.

What’s involved in a laser scanning survey?2020-08-25T11:10:10-05:00

3D laser scanning surveys have become more popular in recent years as the technology has continued to evolve and improve. This process involves shining a reflector-less laser over a surface to collect 3D data, which is captured by a sensor that gets mounted in the laser scanner. The survey points collected all combine to form a point cloud capable of accurately representing the surveyed surface.

What does “high definition surveying” refer to?2020-08-25T11:09:30-05:00

Laser scanning can produce some very high-quality 3D results. We’re capable of surveying some areas and structures that are quite large and detailed while still providing you with on-the-spot high-definition data. This is extremely beneficial for surveying large projects and analyzing designs to ensure proper execution.

What makes laser scanning such a convenient surveying method?2020-08-25T11:08:56-05:00

Laser scanning is fast, simple and safe, which means there is little to no shutdown time required for clients. In most cases you’ll be able to keep working while we perform our surveys, with very little inconvenience to you.

Customer Satisfaction

We let our customers speak for us

“ As a Landman, I have worked on projects with T Baker Smith for many years. I continue to utilize their services because they are professional, trustworthy and assist me, the client, in finding the most efficient resolution for varying types of challenges whether it’s surveying or permitting. ”

Carol M. Sledge, CPL
“ What keeps me coming back to T. Baker Smith is the dedication that Kenny and his team exhibits every day; it is one of the most valuable things to me. I cannot recall one time TBS did not follow through on getting what we asked for. You get what you pay for, and with TBS, we do not have to sit and babysit or redo the work. ”
Craig Guidry

“ We have worked previously with other consultants and find that TBS’ reliability and capability are superior to their competition. They are always available to assist us at Rebecca, Magnolia, Coulon, Acadia, St. Bridget and Evergreen Plantations as well as the Bayou Lafourche Freshwater Reintroduction project, by providing surveying and modeling support. ”
