September 26, 2011


The RIEGL VQ-580 Airborne Laser Scanner, especially designed for measuring on snow and ice, delivers excellent data in the areas of snowfield- and glacier surveying. It distinguishes itself by means of a laser pulse repetition rate of up to 380 kHz and a range of up to 2350 m. The combination of echo digitization and waveform processing allows for multiple target capability. A field of view of 60° and a scanning rate of up to 150 lines/sec and hence an evenly distributed high resolution point grid.
