In the context of climate change and the expansion of areas of urban settlement the demand for high-quality datasets as well as integration into risk management as an early warning system are increasing.
RIEGL’s latest developments allow permanent laser scanning (PLS) installations in endangered areas and their integration into near real-time early warning systems.
This white paper presents the technology of RIEGL, its technical possibilities as well as its application in the context of permanent monitoring. In particular, the ability for user specific system integration by means of open system architecture based on software is shown. DMT GmbH & Co. KG has integrated the scanner into its DMT SAFEGUARD monitoring system based on these capabilities and can offer tailored solutions to customers in the mining and infrastructure sectors.
The open architecture of the RIEGL VZ-400i and VZ-2000i 3D Terrestrial Laser Scanners allows customizing the scanner for complex data acquisition and processing tasks by means of Python scripts and Python-based Apps. RIEGL’s proven online waveform processing technology ensures high quality data even under harsh environmental conditions. 24/7 system operation and fully remote system operation has been proven. Laser scan data is processed by integrated apps in real time on the scanner and final results are visualized via a web-viewer tool running on all standard web browsers.
Based on the example of DMT SAFEGUARD, it is shown that the scanner can be integrated in various applications, demonstrating its high degree of flexibility.
