Terrestrial Laser Scanner (TLS) technology, have altered quickly data acquisition for map production in surveying. In many cases, it is impossible to complete surveying of the desired area without TLS displacement in one station to another. Occlusion is innate in data acquisition, with this type of device. To solve this problem, TLS devices should be placed in different locations and scanning operation to be performed. Increase the number of scan stations cause data redundancy and on the other hand will be increases the computational and monetary cost of project. Aim of this paper is presents a novel method for selecting a better place and localization of TLS. Thus, the mechanism of data acquisition was considered by TLS. Also parameters affecting the choice of a place and a station were investigated. Point cloud data investigations show that these parameters have a major impact in reducing the time needed to completeness of data collection. Occlusion as one of the most important parameters has been discussed in this paper. Using data from one station with combination of image processing method, the area of hidden parts to be estimated. Due to the size and area of the various occlusion set, determines to be appropriate locations for new data collection station. After evaluating candidate points according to given criteria, conditional on the project, the next point will be selected for acquisition. By continuous using this method, reduce a ground operation volume in this type of projects. Reducing time of land surveying in many field projects is very important. While ensuring the quality of data and decreased project costs is essential.
