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.



  • Full access to waveform data acquired by RIEGL instruments
  • Common interface for SDF and WFM file format
  • Index-based search for time stamps within the data stream
