Abstract

This paper summarizes, presents, and derives fundamental formulas and principles of characterization of a priori measurement accuracy of terrestrial laser scanning. The first part is focused on a general mathematical description of geometrical properties of the scanner, and useful general formulas for uncertainty analysis of all types of scanner constructions are presented. Afterwards, a description of physical aspects affecting terrestrial laser scanning follows. The final part of the paper summarizes the presented analysis on examples.
