VZ-1000 3D Laser Scanner

The V-Line 3D Terrestrial Laser Scanner RIEGL VZ-1000 provides high speed, non-contact data acquisition for ranges up to 1400 m using a narrow infrared laser beam and a fast scanning mechanism. High-accuracy laser ranging is based upon RIEGL’s unique echo digitization and online waveform processing, which allows achieving superior measurement capability even under adverse atmospheric conditions and the evaluation of multiple target echoes.


The line scanning mechanism is based upon a fast rotating multi-facet polygonal mirror, which provides fully linear, unidirectional and parallel scan lines. The RIEGL VZ-1000 is a very compact and lightweight surveying instrument, mountable in any orientation and even under limited space conditions.

Modes of Operation
  • Stand-alone data acquisition without the need of a notebook, basic configuration and commanding via the built-in user interface.
    Remote operation via RiSCAN PRO on a notebook, connected wither via LAN interface or integrated WLAN.
    Well-documented command interface for smooth integration into mobile laser scanning systems.
    Interfacing to Post Processing Software.
