Riegl USA announced that the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC), through the United States Agency for Aid and International Development (USAID)-funded Climate Change Adaptation Program (CCAP), has successfully completed an upgrade to its Riegl VQ-880-G LiDAR System. The purpose of the upgrade is to enhance the technical efficiencies and capabilities of the system to ensure continued relevance to planned activities and the quality of the system’s outputs. The Centre’s airborne bathymetric laser scanning system was upgraded with increased infrared channel performance, making it particularly suited for coastal mapping and in-land waterways and offers high-density topographic and bathymetric water depth measurement capability in shallow waters. As a result, the Centre has increased their capacity to meet the coastal topographic and bathymetric needs of the Caribbean Region and wider afield.
