On January 27, 2019, it was announced that RIEGL won the Geospatial Excellence Award for the RIEGL VMX-2HA mobile LiDAR mapping and imaging platform in the Technology Innovation category at the 2019 MAPPS Winter Conference.

The MAPPS awards competition recognizes the professionalism, value, integrity and achievement that member firms have demonstrated in their projects and technology developments over the previous year.

“We all at RIEGL are honored to receive a MAPPS Technology Excellence award for our continued innovations in the LIDAR industry. Being recognized for our high end mobile LIDAR mapping and imaging system, the VMX-2HA, is a great honor to receive from an important organization such as MAPPS. We would like to thank MAPPS for their long term contribution to the industry and for bestowing this award to us.” said Johannes Riegl Jr., President of RIEGL USA

The RIEGL VMX-2HA is a high speed, high performance dual scanner mobile mapping and imaging system which provides dense, accurate, and feature-rich data at highway speeds. With two million measurements and five hundred scan lines per second, this turnkey solution is ideally suited for survey-grade mobile mapping applications.

With the needs of businesses and the market changing constantly, LiDAR sensors and systems must be adaptable and flexible to change with the times and to give businesses a competitive edge. The VMX-2HA provides this with both its hardware and software. The system’s ability to upgrade cameras as optimized versions release and the ability to update software as improvements continue to come out give the end user the ultimate system that grows and changes with their requirements. The VMX-2HA isn’t merely just a new development, it is an evolution.

RIEGL is thrilled to be the winner of the MAPPS Geospatial Excellence Award for the VMX-2HA!
