Terrestrial Laser Scanning

RIEGL terrestrial laser scanners provide detailed and highly accurate 3D data rapidly and efficiently. Applications are wide ranging, including Topography, Mining, As-Built Surveying, Architecture, Archaeology, Monitoring, Civil Engineering and City Modelling.

All RIEGL terrestrial laser scanners are rugged and fully portable instruments, tested under strict conditions for a reliable performance even under highly demanding environmental conditions.

For convenient use of the scanners RIEGL provides special software packages and tools, like

RiPANO allows to explore your project and to extract plots in your browser.

To enable the connection of a RIEGL 3D laser scanner to a robot with a ROS (Robot Operating System), RIEGL offers the ROS2 RIEGL VZ Package, an open-source robotics middleware suite providing nodes, topics and services. It provides a ROS interface for scan data acquisition and the scan position registration feature of the VZ-i laser scanners.

Information on the RIEGL software packages for terrestrial laser scanning can be found here.
Information on available RIEGL Apps for RIEGL VZ-i Series scanners is available here.
