Land Surveyor

I'm looking to buy new or used 200mm spheres for laser scanning, terrestrial LiDAR. Where can I find accurate spheres for a reasonable price, new or used?

I am located in California, USA

    Paul - I've recently invented a new 205mm laser scanning target.. ther are semi hemispherical (1/2 globe) aluminum cake pans (yes I said cake pans) which I paint flat white and coat with highway reflective crushed glass beads.. been testing them for around a year

    depending on your scan density your software can automatically detect  the hemispheres as full globes.. diy cost is around $25 each and the nicest thing is that they stack ..also I can put 6 targets in the space that one 10" sphere takes10496161278?profile=RESIZE_930x..

    How accurate do you need to be??

    Cheers
