In the master's thesis, determining volumes of material mass was analysed on the basis of various methods of capturing spatial data. The data was captured with a terrestrial scanning provided by the Leica Nova MS50 instrument and with a classic detail measurement. The survey methods were repeated in four different study areas. The Leica Nova MS50 also provides an automatic calculation of volumes whose calculation methods are unknown. In the analysis, data processing with different types of interpolations and different grid cell size we were able to determine the method by which we get the most similar results. The result of the analysis is evaluation mass deviation when using different methods to capture spatial data and processing methods. The time deviation of the different capture methods needed to determine the volumes was also evaluated. Based on the result we were able to determine the way the instrument calculates quantities of mass and the suitability of field use, as well as an alternative if the automatic calculation function is not available to us.
