Posted by RIEGL on May 24, 2017

The new Scout B-330 UAV in front of the Swiss Alps

Aeroscout, a long term partner of performance leading LiDAR manufacturer RIEGL, is excited to present the Scout B-330 UAV helicopter, which is built with a high payload capacity of up to 50 kg (110 lbs), a very long flight endurance (at least three hours) and the capability of flying at very high altitudes (up to 3,000m above sea level) in a typical mission scenario. This includes a full autonomous take-off sequence, a mission flight at variable speed, and a landing sequence.

Aeroscout

The beautiful Scout B-330 is specifically designed for LiDAR-based powerline mapping missions. It sets a new benchmark in the long endurance UAV class with its combination of flexibility, world-renowned Swiss quality, and very competitive pricing.


All In A Day's Work

Posted by RIEGL on May 23, 2017

Can laser scanning from UAV and car replace total station and GPS surveys of roads? A project in Croatia tried to find out:

Developments in the field of laser scanners and laser scanning systems have increased in the past few years. Physical size has decreased while performance has increased. The number of laser pulses per second has reached a million and the measurement distance is in the hundreds of metres.

Laser Scanning

RIEGL has implemented these and other features in a variety of compact, powerful, and precise scanners. Attached IMU/GNSS units, governing control units and optional cameras collect/record a multitude of additional properties during each scan. Due to the straightforward attachment system, a quick and easy installation is possible onto helicopters, vehicles and even UAVs – the modern tools of choice to accurately surveying road infrastructure in the highest possible quality.


DEWBERRY TO COLLECT AND PROCESS LIDAR DATA FOR SOUTHWEST FLORIDA WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT

Posted by RIEGL on May 17, 2017

Data will support district's mission of preserving and protecting water resources for the community in Hillsborough County.

Dewberry has been selected to collect, process, and assess airborne topographic lidar data for Hillsborough County, Florida, covering approximately 1,200 square miles within the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD).

Dewberry

Dewberry performed airborne topographic lidar mapping for this project in early 2017 using the new, fully integrated and calibrated Dual Channel Airborne Mapping System, the RIEGL VQ-1560i sensor. The VQ-1560i's laser pulse repetition rate provides more than 1.3 million measurements per second on the ground and offers data acquisition at a wide range of point densities, making it ideal for aerial surveys of ultra-wide areas and complex urban environments.

Orbit GT and RIEGL Strengthen Data Interoperability for Terrestrial Scanning

Posted by RIEGL on March 2, 2017

Orbit GT and RIEGL are strengthening data interoperability for terrestrial scanning by making data exchange between software systems much easier than before!

"Orbit GT and RIEGL share a common view that data interoperability should be as easy as possible, also for quite complex and large datasets, as are abundant in the scanning business", says Peter Bonne, CEO of Orbit GT. "We are very happy with the effort that the RIEGL team has done to bring this interoperability to the next level and make results from terrestrial scanning ready for our portfolio of LiDAR and Imagery data management, feature extraction and publishing software."

Orbit GT

"In our efforts to provide the best solutions for the client, we team up with software industry leaders like Orbit GT. Providing georeferenced panorama image exports with the latest release of RiSCAN PRO is another step towards our common goal of eroding the barrier between kinematic and static laser scanning and process the data in a shared environment such as Orbit's MM Feature Extraction Bundle Software ", says Christian Sevcik, Manager Strategic Software Alliances. " With this update, it has never been easier to combine LiDAR data and imagery collected with a static laser scanner like the RIEGL VZ-400i with mobile mapping data."

Maps Made With Light Show the Way

Posted by RIEGL on February 21, 2017

The topic, officially, was water. But during a scientific conference in Butte, Montana, in 2013, earthquake expert Michael Stickney glimpsed something unexpected in a three-dimensional lidar image of the Bitterroot Valley in nearby Missoula.

Maps Made W/ Light Show the way - by Heather Dewar

The valley’s beauty makes it a magnet for newcomers, some of them Hollywood and Silicon Valley celebrities. In a bare-earth lidar image, with the land surface portrayed in detail, Stickney saw what no one knew existed: an active seismic fault with the potential to trigger a magnitude 6.5 to 7.5 earthquake.

The new high precision RIEGL VZ-400i 3D Laser Scanner is one of the fastest 3D medium range laser scanners on the market! Its high repetition rate of 1.2 million emitted laser pulses per second and high scan speed of 240 lines per second, combined with a MEMS IMU for pose estimation enable a significant reduction of scanning time to less than one minute per scan position in the field.


Fast Full Waveform Data Export

Posted by RIEGL USA on July 20, 2016

RIEGL

With the introduction of full waveform laser scanners available off-the-shelf around ten years ago customers immediately demanded open data formats and standards, which would allow them to perform full waveform raw data analysis with their own methods and algorithms. Data formats like LAS and PulseWaves emerged with the aim of enabling easy data access without information needed about the laser scanners' technical peculiarities. It's the instrument manufacturer's task to address these particular characteristics of the laser scanner in order to enable the conversion from proprietary data formats like, e.g, the SDF raw data from LMS-Q series of airborne laser scanners, to open data formats.

Full waveform data is no longer given in plain time domain (i.e. amplitude over time) alone but is directly linked to the final point cloud, which enables immediate access to a 3D-coordinates' originating waveform for in-depth analysis. The seemingly simple task of converting full waveform data to any other open format becomes tricky when the whole processing chain from raw data to the final point cloud must comply with the present constraints and requirements.


NEW RIEGL High-Speed Mobile Mapping Turnkey Systems in the Spotlight

Posted by RIEGL USA on July 19, 2016

RIEGL

The new RIEGL VMQ-1HA High-Speed Single Scanner Mobile Mapping System, with one VUX-1HA scanner integrated, is an economically priced, lightweight system for the growing mobile mapping market.

Fully integrated into the measuring head of the system, the VUX-1HA sensor enables acquisition of dense point cloud patterns, even with single passes at typical traffic speeds and provides 1 million measurements and up to 250 scan lines per second. The optional integration of up to four cameras allows simultaneous acquisition of imagery to complement the captured LiDAR data.

The VMQ-1HA is well suited for various applications such as transportation infrastructure mapping, road surface measurements, city modeling, rapid capture of construction sites and bulk material, as-built surveying, a GIS mapping and asset management, as well as surveying in open pit mining.

Watch the NEW RIEGL Video on RiCOPTER's mission at the Red Bull race track in Spielberg!

Posted by RIEGL USA on July 14, 2016

The Red Bull Air Race is to use laser measurements for precise track planning and mapping. A team of RIEGL laser experts recently scanned the entire Red Bull Ring racetrack with its RIEGL RiCOPTER remotely piloted aircraft system for airborne laser scanning. From there, the team created a 3D point cloud which gathered information for the Red Bull Air Race aviation team.

Watch the new I Video offering some insights into data acquisition mission at the Red Bull race track in Spielberg and see the impressing point clouds!

The information collected is being used for the track-planning tool with 100% realistic scenery. The mapping also takes potential obstacles that could be in the vicinity of the flight path into account. This data is then developed into a simulator for the aviation department with obstacles realistically placed, thanks to the high precision data collected.
