Riegl VZ-1000 - Overview
The Riegl VZ-1000 is a high speed terrestrial laser scanner with a maximum range of around 1.4km. The unit is lightweight and compact and is supplied with an external NiMH battery capable of powering the scanner for around 5 hours (other external batteries can be used). RiSCAN PRO software is supplied for collection and processing of point cloud data.
The VZ-1000 uses Riegl's unique echo digitisation and online waveform analysis to evaluate multiple target echoes. Our scanner has the optional Full Waveform Feature which allows the entire digitised return waveform to be recorded for further analysis of weak signals etc.
The GEF has 1 VZ-1000 system available for loan to UK researchers.
