The Key Parameters of a Modern Lidar System

How Innovations in Measurement Technology Are Facilitating the Work of Surveyors

A high-resolution scan with more than 50 pts/m² in a single pass, acquired with the VQ-1560-II from an altitude of 770m AGL at a speed of 120kn.

GIM International published an article by Peter Rieger, manager of the Business Division for Airborne Laser Scanning of RIEGL Laser Measurement Systems, and Dr. Andreas Ullrich, chief technical officer and managing director of RIEGL Laser Measurement Systems.

This article highlights how the remarkable innovations in measurement technology are facilitating the work of surveyors. Users are now able to focus on data acquisition and data analysis without the hurdles of hardware integration and the combination of necessary different software tools to gain a traction in the field of laser scanning.

The evolution of laser technology in the last 15 to 20 years has enabled an increase in achievable pulse repetition rates for time-of-flight linear LiDAR sensors. RIEGL has contributed and pioneered this evolution through waveform analysis, resolving range ambiguities and scanning mechanisms.
