This initiative is introduction of 3D Terrestrial Laser Scanner System for accurate and human intervention free measurement of the coal and Over Burden face in all major mines which is helping in accurate determination of volume of coal and OB extracted from the mines.
To showcase the outstanding qualities of the RIEGL VZ-400i for underground data acquisition of large areas, a special 3D laser scanning project was executed in summer 2017. Data of the famous Eisriesenwelt, a cave labyrinth with a total length of more than 40 kilometers in Werfen, Austria, was captured in 370 scan positions within two days. Only four hours were necessary for registration and post processing of the data. Based on RIEGL’s Waveform-LiDAR technology, additional scan data attributes are provided with each measurement. Using the reflectance value - for example - allows surface material detection and e.g. visualization of all surfaces covered with ice.

Shattuck St. Mary’s boarding school utilized laser scanning to revamp their outdated construction documents into 3D CAD format. The project was an excellent example of the value of terrestrial scanning. Using highly accurate 3D scan data generated with 3D scanning you are able to view as-built documentation in a virtual world. The point cloud data can also be surfaced to generate a CAD model which can be used for comparison or reconstruction.

This video clip has been generated from Terrestrial Laser Scanning data of some 150 - 200 year old trees (Abies Alba and Picea Abies) growing in a traditionally manged and privately owned "Plenterwald" forest in the Black Forest Mountain Range in Southwest Germany. Such a "Plenterwald" is an old sylvicultural forest management system based on individual tree selection. It is very close to nature and typical for privately owned farm forests in the Black Forest. Other Plenterwald forests are growing in Switzerland and Austria. The biggest tree, a White Fir (Abies Alba), is 45 m high and its stem has a diameter at breast height of 1.32 m (perimeter: 4.15 m), the estimated tree volume is about 25 cubic meters. With 6 Laserscans from different positions all data visible in the video clip w...
With QINSy, a Mobile Laser Mapping System is ideal for scanning roads, urbanized areas, mines, stockpiles etc. in a very short time. But laser systems are also extremely useful in the marine environment, where lasers can be combined with multibeam to measure above and below water simultaneously. This application is ideal for scanning canals, ship channels and rivers.
Lead-8, Engineering Surveys & InteliBuild video on the benefits of laser scanning, point clouds & BIM. How owners, developers and architects can use scan-to-BIM for design visualisation, area measurements, facility management & more. At Lead-8, we are always looking at how we can use technology to enhance our work flow. We invited InteliBuild, with the assistance of Engineering Surveys, to scan our studios as a demonstration to understand the potential of 3d laser scanning. The device basically shoots a laser at the target and then captures the data in return. It scans a vertical line and it then pivots a small degree, then scans the next vertical line and continues around. So it does a 270 degree scan and picks up a 360 degree space. When the instrument is setup, everything it can se...
A short course last August at the Indiana University Judson Mead Geologic Field Station in Montana brought together 21 geoscience field instructors to learn about incorporating terrestrial laser scanning (TLS; sometimes called ground-based lidar) and structure from motion (SfM) photogrammetry into geoscience courses with field components. Both methods can be used to generate high-resolution, three-dimensional topographic models that can be applied to hazard assessment, geomorphic change detection, and stratigraphic sequence analysis, to cite a few examples. In this scene, meeting attendees were scanned from a single position by a Riegl VZ-1000 scanner. The entire scan took a few 10s of seconds and the laser was only on a given participant for seconds. The final scan resolution was less th...
This 3D VZ-Line Laser Scanner offers superior and unrivalled long range measurement performance of up to 4000 m reflectorlessly while still maintaining completely eye safe operation (Laser Class 1). RIEGL's unique V-Line technology is based on echo digitization and online waveform processing and is the key to enabling such extreme long range measurements. The VZ-4000 operates even in poor visibility and demanding multi target situations caused by dust, haze, rain, snow, etc. which are frequently found in difficult environments such as mine sites.More Information: www.riegl.com
The necessity for monitoring geo-risk areas such as rock slides is growing due to the increasing probability of such events caused by environmental change. Europe is one leader in survey technology, due to well-established providers of measurement systems and frameworks. In Europe, rock slides cause increasing damage particularly in alpine areas. DE-MONTES provides an efficient, highly automated, high-resolution, terrestrial, long range sensing measurement and analysis system which is able to monitor geo-risk (and related) objects by means of non-signalized natural target points -- which is a key to such systems due to the lack of reachability and the required distance-to-the-object. Even novel sensor concepts such as terrestrial laser scanning can only cover a subset of the requirements, ...

Engineering geologist, Pete Hobbs, explains how the British Geological Survey landslides team use Terrestrial Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR). LiDAR is a land-based laser scanner which, combined with a highly accurate differential GPS and camera, enables us to produce 3D computer models of landslides in coastal areas.
Project spotlight: Laser Design's Terrestrial 3D scanning team collected high-density spatial imaging with millions of coordinates quickly and accurately. Using the the point cloud generated, we were able to view as-built documentation in a virtual world. The point cloud data was surfaced to generate a CAD model.

Watch the RIEGL VZ-1000 terrestrial laser scanner support a scientific project carried out at the dangerous Dachstein moutain in Austria to find new ways in improving mountaineers security. October 16th, 2011, "Einsatz in der Südwand" was broadcast by 3Sat television (www.3sat.de).
Broadcast television systems are encoding or formatting standards for the transmission and reception of terrestrial television signals. There were three main analog television systems in use around the world until late 2010s: NTSC, PAL, and SECAM. Now in digital television, there are four main systems in use around the world: ATSC, DVB, ISDB and DTMB. This video is targeted to blind users.

Advanced Television Systems Committee standards are a set of standards developed by the Advanced Television Systems Committee for digital television transmission over terrestrial, cable, and satellite networks. The ATSC standards were developed in the early 1990s by the Grand Alliance, a consortium of electronics and telecommunications companies that assembled to develop a specification for what is now known as HDTV. ATSC formats also include standard-definition formats, although initially only HDTV services were launched in the digital format. This video is targeted to blind users.
