FARO SiteScape Acquisition Leads to Advanced 3D Capabilities On the Go

Sitescape provides accessible 3D capture for mobile devices

Published: Monday, December 12, 2022 - 12:00

(FARO: Lake Mary, FL) -- FARO Technologies Inc., a global leader in 4D digital reality solutions, has 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 allows 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 groundbreaking 3D LiDAR scanning software to our portfolio of reality capture solutions,” says 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,” adds Andy Putch, SiteScape CEO.
