02/16 RIEGL at Esri - Another Successful Event!

Last week, the RIEGL team presented and exhibited at the Esri UC and Imagery and Mapping Forum held in beautiful San Diego, California. This highly anticipated annual conference was attended by over 16,000 GIS users, managers and developers. 

Johannes Riegl Jr., CMO, presented in the Plenary Session at the Imagery and Mapping Forum on “LiDAR – The Source for High Accuracy Geospatial Information”.  This presentation gave an introduction to LiDAR and its capabilities and talked about the joint project between Esri and RIEGL on a UAS rapid response solution. This presentation was very well received among the audience. 

Christian Sevcik, Manager of Strategic Software Alliances, presented “LiDAR Technology: Past, Present, and Future” at the Imagery and Mapping Forum and “LiDAR- Waveforms, Pointclouds, and Attributes” at the UC to great audiences. 

The NEW RIEGL VMX-1HA mobile mapping system took center stage at the outdoor mobile display where we were busy demonstrating this survey grade mobile mapping solution and its capabilities to the Esri crowd. 

Inside of the exhibit hall, we had the RIEGL RiCOPTER remotely piloted unmanned aircraft system on display, as well as the new RIEGL VZ-400i high performance 3D terrestrial laser scanner. These fantastic instruments captured the crowd’s attention and kept our team of experts busy explaining the powerful RIEGL solutions.

We look forward to the Esri Imaging and Mapping Forum and User Conference 2017.

Congratulations to the team at Esri for another successful edition of the world’s leading GIS conference!
