RIEGL International LIDAR Conference Attracts International Audience

Moreover, 20 industry leading companies including Gold Sponsors Applanix, ESRI and Trimble exhibited and gave a partner presentation.


To kick off the conference, the new RIEGL LMS-Q1560, which represents the future of airborne laser scanning technology, was unveiled to the international audience. Only one day after the official unveiling, RIEGL gladly announced the first LMS-Q1560 sale to a long-standing customer in Canada.


RIEGL also presented several other exciting hardware and software news:


  • the VMS-250 single-scanner mobile mapper optimized for marine applications
  • the VMX-450-RAIL: high end mobile mapping system optimized for usage on railways
  • RiSOLVE, RIEGL’s new software package designed for use with the VZ-400 and VZ-1000 terrestrial laser scanners for collision investigation and scene reconstruction, simplifying the acquisition process and reducing processing time dramatically
  • RiPRECISION, RIEGL’s new software package created for use with the RIEGL family of mobile scanning systems. The powerful software adjusts overlapping data to create a very precise point cloud for the end user.
  • Right in time for the conference, technology startup rapidlasso has released an open data exchange format called “PulseWaves” for storing full waveform LiDAR data.

In addition to the conference itself, technical workshops were provided, a tour of the RIEGL headquarters in Horn was given and a technical excursion to RIEGL’s airborne partners Airborne Technologies, Diamond Airborne Sensing and Schiebel in Wiener Neustadt south of Vienna was made.

The Highlight of the social program was Wednesday evening’s Gala Dinner. The RIEGL community came together in a spectacular, ultra-modern ambience for high class entertainment in the heart of Vienna, and spent a wonderful evening together

We are looking forward to meeting you at the next RIEGL LIDAR User Conference in 2015!
