The existence of terrestrial laser scanners (TLSs) with capability to provide dense three-dimensional (3D) data in short period of time has made it widely used for the many purposes such as documentation, management and analysis. However, similar to other sensors, data obtained from TLSs also can be impaired by errors coming from different sources. Then, calibration routine is crucial for the TLSs to ensure the quality of the data. Through self-calibration, this study has performed system calibration for hybrid (Leica ScanStation C10) and panoramic (Faro Photon 120) scanner at the laboratory with dimensions 15.5m x 9m x 3m and more than hundred planar targets that were fairly distributed. Four most significant parameters are derived from well-known error sources of geodetic instruments as constant (a0), collimation axis (b0), trunnion axis (b1) and vertical circle index (c0) errors. Data obtained from seven scan-stations were processed, and statistical analysis (e.g. t-test) has shown significant errors for the calibrated scanners.
