key words: laser scanning, 3D scanner, ecosystems preservation


The aim of this work is to show the possibilities of using laser scanner in ecosystems preservation on the stage of making spatial planning decisions. The laser technique of automatic measurement enabled us to get measurable and fully objective spot elevation model very quickly. Received scan was converted into spatial model by adding texture and later on merging increments of development in their natural surroundings. The visualization created can be very helpful when choosing the best option of land development; moreover, it can help protecting the land from investments leaving it in its original shape. For the purpose of the research supporting ecosystems preservation, two chosen objects, located in Sobótka (Sobótka commune) and Maniów Mały (Mietków commune), were diagnosed. Field investigations were conducted in the years 2011-2012. It was concluded that the afforestation of one of the investigated area according to the existing regional policy would block the view on the Zbiornik Mietkowski dam coping.
