Terrestrial 3D Laserscanner RIEGL VZ-1000

The RIEGL VZ-1000 offers a very long range up to 1200m, in combination with high-accuracy and high-precision, while still operating in Laser Class 1. Obviously, considering its operational area, the instrument is dust and splash-proof.

Target extraction technique, based on RIEGL’s unique echo digitization and online waveform processing, offers multiple target detection for each single laser shot, and consequently allows achieving superior measurement capability even under adverse atmospheric conditions and excellent laser-penetration of vegetation.

The device is currently used as a permanent laser scanner (pTLS) in the Noeslide research project.
