RiSCAN PRO is RIEGL’s solution for processing VZ-Line Terrestrial Laser Scanner Data. With advanced features for point cloud optimization, such as batch registration, 3D bundle adjustment, intelligent filtering tools, data merging and high-performance 3D visualization capabilities, RiSCAN PRO provides a fully integrated solution for producing accurate and refined TLS point cloud data.


RiACQUIRE covers a wide variety of tasks present in RIEGL's mobile and airborne laser scanning systems. Both, mobile and airborne systems comprise at least one laser scanner, a position and attitude measurement system, and an operator's work station. Many systems further comprise camera sub-systems, additional laser scanners, mass data storage devices, and mechanical subassemblies.


RiPROCESS is designed for managing, processing, analyzing, and visualizing data acquired with airborne laser scanning systems (ALS systems) and mobile laser scanning systems (MLS systems) based on RIEGL Laser Scanners. Data export in geodetic systems is supported by the GeoSys Manager.


Airborne and Mobile Laser Scanning Systems provide data acquired by the laser scanner(s) and data from an INS/GNSS system. The laser scanner data is frequently referred to as scan data, whereas the INS/GNSS data or position and orientation data is called in short trajectory data after post-processing.


RiPRECISION automatically performs adjustments of GNSS/INS trajectories to merge overlapping mobile scan data. It further allows the scan data to be fitted to given control objects. This results in a consistent point cloud of enhanced precision and increased georeferencing accuracy.


RIEGL Airborne Laser Scanners with full waveform capability digitize the waveform of the echo signal for every emitted laser pulse.


RiMINING is designed to optimize and simplify scan data processing in open-pit mining. The focus of the software design is on workflow simplification and automation. For advanced data-processing full compatibility with RiSCAN PRO is provided.


RiVLib is the well documented platform independent software library for control of and data retrieval from RIEGL's V-Line scanners. RIEGL V-Line scanners stream measurement data utilizing the versatile RXP format. RiVLib facilitates easy and full transparent access to this compressible data stream.


RiWaveLIB provides straightforward and well-documented access to the digitized echo signals recorded by selected RIEGL laser scanners during data acquisition. The digitized echo signals, also known as waveform data, are the basis for the so-called full waveform analysis which deduces ranging information and additional data from the waveforms. Additionally, the library enables access to the time stamp and measurement direction for each measurement and thus enables the user to calculate point cloud data based on their own algorithms for the full waveform analysis.


For smooth processing of scan data acquired with RIEGL Hydrography Laser Scanners the Airborne Data Processing Software AddOn RiHYDRO is offered as supplement to RiPROCESS.
