RIEGL is an international leading provider of cutting edge 3D laser scanning technology for surveying.
In addition to the headquarters in Horn, Lower Austria - where research & development as well as production are located – RIEGL provides sales, support and service by offices in Vienna and Salzburg, RIEGL subsidiaries in the USA, Japan, Australia and China and by a worldwide network of distribution partners.
Laser scanning captures the surface of single objects or entire regions with a very dense pattern of measuring points. The point cloud generated therefrom is combined to form a highly accurate, detailed, digital 3D image. RIEGL thus supplies the basic digital data for various applications: from topography and mining, to corridor mapping and monitoring of pipelines and rail tracks, to modern agriculture and forestry, archaeology and architecture.
