Press Release:Riegl LMS Z390 scanner from 3D Laser Mapping

The Riegl LMS Z390 scanner, supplied to market leading visualisation technology specialists AMT3D, is being used to create highly accurate photo realistic 3D models to assist with urban regeneration, tourism and heritage, facilities management and environmental applications. AMT3D is a spin off from Leeds University and has already created a number of high profile 3D visualisations including one of Holbeck Urban Village, a £800 million project to regenerate the Leeds birthplace of the industrial revolution.

Most recently the Riegl LMS Z390 was used by AMT3D to undertake a detailed survey of the streetscape in Ireland’s fastest growing Heritage Town. The highly accurate survey measurements, when combined with digital photography and state of the art software, were used to create Ireland’s first fully interactive virtual town, residents and visitors to Westport in County Mayo can now

explore the town with the click of a mouse. The 3D interactive digital model of the town centre is now available online at the AMT3D and work is ongoing to expand the model’s coverage to include all the Westport hinterland including the Quay.

“The Riegl scanner means we can create 3D models that are accurate enough for planning and development projects,” said Brendan Hafferty, Managing Director of AMT3D. “When we integrate the digital photography the visualisation becomes complete. Not only is the model accurate it is realistic and therefore visually appealing.”

The Riegl LMS Z390 uses laser beams to record the position of features and surfaces with unrivalled speed, precision and repeatability making it an ideal tool for architectural, archaeological, heritage and engineering projects. The scanner also includes an integrated Nikon D200 12.3MPixel camera for the capture of digital images of the scene being surveyed, can be operated by any standard PC or Notebook and allows wireless data transmission for remote working.

“This device has been developed specifically for surveying and urban modelling applications,” said Dr Graham Hunter, Managing Director of 3D Laser Mapping. “The Z390 offers a unique and unrivalled technical specification yet is robust, fully portable and easy to use.”

3D Laser Mapping is a specialist in laser scanning solutions, the Riegl Premier Distributor for the UK, Ireland and sub-Saharan Africa and the leading distributor of TerraScan software. 3D Laser Mapping integrates laser scanner hardware systems with their own software and peripherals to create robust solutions for sectors such as mapping, mining and manufacturing.
