Especially designed for ultra-long range applications in topography and mining, the new High-Speed, High-Accuracy Terrestrial Laser Scanner RIEGL VZ-6000 offers ultra-long measurement range of more than 6,000 m for static applications. As the Laser Class 3B companion of the RIEGL VZ-4000, it is due to its laser wavelength exceptionally well suited for measuring snowy and icy terrain in glacier mapping, monitoring & surveying missions, as well as for specific applications in open pit mining. First fieldwork in Greenland this month exceeded all expectations.
Combined with the innovative RIEGL software package RiMINING, both, the VZ-4000 and the VZ-6000, offer an optimized and simplified data registration and processing workflow for surveying of extended areas. E.g., automatic extraction of break lines, contours, profiles and calculation of volumes make for more efficiency in the demanding open-pit mining fieldwork.
