‘Digital Information in 3D’

Technology Highlight – RIEGL

In the run up to our event, we take a detailed look at some of the technology that will be discussed and on show during ‘Digital Information in 3D’. Here we focus on RIEGL.

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.
Laser Scanners from RIEGL make use of ‘Online Waveform Processing’ technology. In this video, Ananda Fowler and Tan Nguyen from RIEGL explain for their laser scanners, and online waveform processing work. We also wrote a blog post explaining the technology and its benefits here.

3D Laser Mapping are premier distributors of RIEGL Laser Measurement Systems, having served the UK, Ireland and sub-Saharan Africa since 1999.
‘We started out working with RIEGL in 1999, a relationship which continues to this day. I saw the quality in the RIEGL scanners, offering something very unique to the marketplace’   Graham Hunter

Official UK Launch:

We are excited to be launching the new VZ-400i laser scanning system at our event, with a unit on display in our technology room. This is the latest in the VZ line of scanners from RIEGL, and is a ground breaking release from the company. Read our blog post explaining the main features of the new scanner.

Also on display will be the RiCOPTER, the first unmanned aircraft system from RIEGL. This is a remotely piloted aircraft system, flexible enough to be equipped with multiple sensors allowing for aerial data capture.
The extremely lightweight carbon fibre main frame, foldable propeller carrier arms, and shock-absorbing undercarriage enable stable flight, safe landings and handy transportation.
The RiCOPTER can be equipped with different sensors up to an overall maximum payload of 16 kg (sensors and power supply).

VZ-2000 and VZ-4000:

The VZ-2000 and VZ-4000 are from the VZ-line of scanners from RIEGL, both can be used in our SiteMonitor4D Solution. Due to their super quick and long range properties, these scanners are ideal for geology, geotechnical hazards, surveying and monitoring. Read our blog post explaining the changes to the VZ line through time here.

VUX SYS with RIEGL VP-1 Pod:

Adding to our range of aerial solutions, we will be showing the VUX SYS laser scanner. This scanner integrates into the small, lightweight RIEGL VP-1 Pod to be mounted to manned helicopters. View this video to learn more about the exciting aerial system.

Official UK launch of the new RIEGL VZ-400i at our event in November: ‘Digital Information in 3D’

By | Blog, Events, News | No Comments



We are pleased to announce that we will be launching the new RIEGL VZ-400i at our event in November.

The new end-to-end laser scanning system was first revealed at InterGEO this year, and has since been making an impact with its impressive list of features and capabilities.

We are excited to show you this new scanner, and explain how it can help benefit your company.

We wrote a blog post after the initial launch, which you can read here.

Head to our event page for more information, as we update you with the other systems we will also have on show, as well as revealing the speakers we have lined up across the two days.

StreetMapper IV to launch at intergeo – The latest mobile mapping system from 3D Laser Mapping

By | Blog, News | No Comments

3D Laser Mapping are launching their brand new StreetMapper system at Intergeo this year.

StreetMapper first came onto the market in 2004, driven by client demand to survey roads and structures above the road with unparalleled safety, speed and accuracy.  By teaming up with IGI GmbH, the German Guidance and Navigation specialists, what resulted was a first-of-a-kind system from 3D Laser Mapping.

The original StreetMapper system used four RIEGL laser scanners and the best commercially available IMU at the time. The technology was a game-changer in its day, but one which required slight refinement to reach the needs of ever changing modern markets.

Alternative versions were developed in 2010 and 2012; StreetMapper POD – an enclosed mobile mapping solution with two Riegl laser scanners and an IGI IMU, and StreetMapper PORTABLE – a modular system with one RIEGL laser scanner, the same IMU, and a lightweight swivel mount.

Where both these systems continued to meet the needs of client demands, there was still room for improvement. Further requests from customers for an even more compact, simplified yet reliable system were raised. 3DLM listened and responded.

2015 is a big year for the StreetMapper brand as we prepare to launch an all-new version of our market-leading solution at Intergeo in Stuttgart.” commented Dr. Chris Cox, Senior Engineer for mobile Mapping Systems at 3D Laser Mapping.  “Our customers have spoken; they want a new system that is more compact, more versatile, and easier to use while still delivering the same high-levels of survey grade accuracy.  And that’s precisely what we will unveil in September.”

Come to stand no: 84.025 at Intergeo from 15th-17th September to see the new StreetMapper IV and find out how it can benefit your business.
