Distribution Partner Portrait - ArtGeo

In our series of showcasing our strong worldwide partner network, we would like to introduce you today to one of our russian distributors, ARTGEO.

ArtGeo Company was founded in 2010 by a group of specialist graduated engineers and technicians, who have solid experience with geodetic and laser scanning technologies for many years.

In the same year, ArtGeo was authorized to promote, offer, import, resell and support RIEGL terrestrial, mobile and industrial scanners within the territory of Russia and CIS countries: Belarus, Moldavia, Ukraine, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tadzhikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.

ArtGeo supplies and delivers state-of-the-art geodetic equipment, services and software.

Our distribution partner focuses on the active promotion of RIEGL laser scanning technologies for industries such as the oil and gas, electric power, mining or road and railway industry.
The company's headquarters is situated in the center of Moscow, Russia, with good transport connections in all directions. The ArtGeo office provides 170 square meters for Marketing, Sales, Training and Administration and 150 square meters serve as a service center, for product testing, and the calibration of equipment.

Last year, ArtGeo finished several interesting and exceptional projects:

First RIEGL VZ-4000 laser scanner was sold to the Institute of Geography of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

The Institute of Geography of Kazakhstan, a leading research organization in the field of Geographical Sciences of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the only specialized institute in the Central Asian region, has commissioned a new ground-based laser scanner, the RIEGL VZ-4000 to monitor glaciers of mountain ranges and to track avalanche situations and the hydrological forecasting mining area Alma-Ata. The observation of natural processes in the nearby mountains is a vital necessity of Kazakhstan's largest city. The location of Alma-Ata, at an altitude of over 1000 meters above sea level, the proximity of the mountains and the constant threat of mudflows introduces particular importance to the work of scientists from the Institute of Geography of Kazakhstan.

The Institute's research is also focused on environmental issues and assesses natural resources of the Republic of Kazakhstan geosystems and neighboring countries with the development of geographical framework of environmental management.

To solve these problems of major infrastructure and natural objects, they are using the unique 3D laser scanner RIEGL VZ-4000, with a maximum measurement range of more than 4,000 meters.

Field testing of equipment in the mountains of Trans-Ili Alatau showed excellent results of the measurements, including the icy and snowy surfaces in difficult conditions at high altitudes of about 3500 meters.

RIEGL VZ-1000 scanner -  for Moscow underground engineering company “MosEngProject”

In Moscow, huge traffic jams appear on a daily basis. Last year, Moscow's government accepted a special program to develop new subway stations with a length of more than 650km until 2020.

RIEGL technology will support this program for developing new infrastructure in Moscow through the delivery of a RIEGL VZ-1000 to "MosEngProject", a local engineering company. The VZ-1000 was sold by ArtGeo earlier this year.
