RIEGL VZ-2000i

Based on a future-oriented, innovative new processing architecture, internet connectivity, and RIEGL's latest waveform processing LiDAR technology, the RIEGL VZ-2000i Long Range 3D Laser Scanning System combines proven user friendliness in the field with fast and highly accurate data acquisition.

Its new processing architecture enables execution of different background tasks (such as point cloud registration, geo- referencing, orientation via integrated Inertial Measurement Unit, etc.) on-board in parallel to the simultaneous acquisition of scan data and image data. A full documentation of the scanner‘s software components – directly accessible on the RIEGL VZ-2000i – provides a sound basis for creation of your own python apps to enhance the scanner functionality. The system provides highest flexibility by supporting numerous peripherals and accessories such as the integrated GNSS unit for high accurate RTK solution, a SIM Card slot for 3G/4G LTE, WLAN, LAN, USB, and different other ports of external units.

RIEGL's unique Waveform-LiDAR technology is the key to enabling such high speed, long range, high accuracy measurements even in poor visibitlity and demanding multi-target situations caused by dust, haze, rain, vegetation, etc.

For operating the scanner and for data processing, RIEGL offers the well established software package RiSCAN PRO. Different license levels and plugin module licenses allow an adaption to the user specific requirements.

Special software packages and tools - like RiPANO, that allows to explore your project and to extract plots in your browser - are additionally offered.

For geotechnical analysis of scanned rock surfaces, RIEGL provides the LIS GeoTec Plugin. It facilitates the calculation of surface normal for a local neighborhood. These surface normals are further analyzed to detect clusters of pre-dominant surface orientations, which are used for data classification and visualization on a polarplot diagram.

In forestry applications, the RIEGL LIS TreeAnalyzer Plugin enables the automatic extraction of various individual tree parameters – like georeferenced tree position, tree ID, diameter at breast height, tree height, crown area, or crown diameter – from terrestrial laser point clouds and their further processing in corresponding Third-Party software packages.

Additionally, RIEGL presents four apps for the 3D terrestrial laser scanners of the VZ-i series, which allow real-time analysis and data processing in diverse monitoring applications, among others in land slide monitoring but also in open pit mining operations. Based on reliable real-time data, the Monitoring App, the Monitor+ App, the Design Compare App and the Slope Angle App enable prompt necessary decisions in critical situations. More details about our apps can be found here.
