Such solutions include scanning the height of crops and forestry or providing efficient ways of monitoring other indicators of ecological healthfulness with high resolution, point density, and precision.
Archaeology and Cultural Heritage Documentation: The goal of scanning any historical or archaeological site is to preserve it with the smallest possible impact and highest fidelity. Nothing surpasses unmanned acquisition in this regard. RIEGL unmanned scanners allow us to acquire data from scan positions that are otherwise prohibitive due to environmental or preservation considerations.
Power Line Mapping: Power lines are an integral part of any nation's infrastructure. As such, great care needs to be taken to be sure that they are well-maintained. Unfortunately however, many power lines are in difficult-to-reach locations. Traditional airborne acquisition excels at looking at broad swaths of such information. Unmanned systems come in when there are specific sections that are in question and deliver the precision and accuracy needed to correctly assess their condition.
Corridor Mapping: Using RIEGL LiDAR unmanned scanners, you can map large areas in a minimal amount of time with the best accuracy in the field.
Airborne Scanning Solutions
Aerospace: Given the accuracy requirements within the aerospace industry, achieving small measurement quality, even with large objects from the air utilizing small aircraft, rotor craft or helicopters, is extremely crucial. RIEGL LiDAR scanners provide accurate data within a micron accuracy.
Power Line Mapping : With the vast network and infrastructure that comprise interconnected grids and power lines that generate and transport electricity to millions of homes and businesses, the demand for accurate data from power line corridors are in great demand. These corridors are often in areas that are not easily accessible and in turn, makes it extremely difficult to survey. Learn about how our RIEGL LiDAR products can help you maintain accurate and efficient data capturing techniques.
Shoreline Mapping: Using RIEGL LiDAR scanners, the measurements of shoreline changes along bays and oceans are collected for use in historical aerial photography and airborne topographic LiDAR surveying.
Corridor Mapping - Using RIEGL LiDAR scanners, you can map vast areas in a minimal amount of time with maximum accuracy.
General Industry: RIEGL USA will develop a system for use in your industry if we have not already established one for use within your industry. Our research, years of experience and use of RIEGL LiDAR scanners will surely enable us to become the stepping stone for a more cost efficient, productive and timely solution for your business' needs. We will either provide you with the best possible scanner available on the market, train and support your business or build a complete system for you that stand true to our core of building systems and delivering performance.

Terrestrial Scanning Solutions
The economical benefits of perfectly leveled fields are enormous. For instance, a leveled field results in substantial water savings and an increased yield and product quality. Rotating lasers have become essential tools for agricultural applications. They make faster work of many jobs, while eliminating costly errors for precise leveling. Once considered "nice to have," today they are a competitive "must have" to get the job done efficiently and precisely.
Surveying: Our surveying solutions involve the organization of scan data of your property, land or area, according to your country and state regulations.
Engineering : Chemical, civil, electrical, mechanical, plant, structural and many more engineering disciplines are involved in the planning, design, construction and maintenance of roads, railways, airports, stadiums, harbors, docks, tunnels, bridges, large buildings, airports, schools, water supplies, hydroelectric power development, sewage, etc. Take a look at how RIEGL products have provided the most powerful, efficient and cost effective solutions for use in the industry.
Monitoring: RIEGL scanner systems have been proven to be reliable in the monitoring and deformation areas. Modeling and examination of natural and manmade phenomenon' such as forest fires, earthquakes, volcanoes, shoreline recession, land slips and land movement including structures such as bridges, tunnels and mines are all made possible with accurate data using RIEGL 2D and 3D scanners in the field.
Disaster & Emergency Management: RIEGL USA provides solutions that contribute to the process of managing disasters such as floods, earthquakes, fires, etc. RIEGL's products are intended to provide accuracy and performance utilizing high resolution images in order to achieve exceptional results that can be analyzed, verified and presented to crucial parties in establishing cause, effect and solutions to help the world abroad.
Archaeology & Cultural Heritage: You can increase your efficiency in the field of archaeology with RIEGL products. Zone tilling practices will allow you to properly and precisely plant on these zone to reduce compaction which in effect will create traffic lanes in your fields.By utilizing RIEGL scanners, you can lower the number of scans needed to operate in the field. Take your time and increase your productivity, as well as the accuracy of your data with a RIEGL scanner.
Building & Construction: The building and construction industry, both residential and commercial, play a vital role in the U.S. economy. Our scanners provide a range of surveying solutions that enables workers in the construction, building, surveying and maintenance fields the option to measure and index with accuracy and efficiency.
Mining & Exploration: With the extraction of natural resources, mining and quarrying has become a segment of the market that covers a vast array of businesses around the world. This involves researching, planning, collecting and processing data captures in the field with calculation of mine surveying measurements.
