Non-contact laser measuring systems which scan their surroundings two-dimensionally. A pulsating laser beam scans the surroundings in one plane by way of a rotating mirror. When the individual beams encounter objects, they are reflected. By evaluating all the reflected beams, a map is created of the surroundings in the scan plane
