Riegl touts streamlined workflow with Risolve release


HANOVER, Germany – Riegl announced here at Intergeo the newest in its point cloud processing software products: Risolve. Marketed as offering “fully automatic registration and colorization of scan data,” when combined with the use of its VZ line of terrestrial laser scanners.

“This stream-lined process is the fastest solution to acquire, register, and colorize outdoor 3D scan data,” the company claims in press materials. “With additional tools for filtering, scene animation and measurements, Risolve enables rapid turnaroud of critical information.”

The company released a video showing the software’s functionality here:


“Risolve takes the complexity out of the registration process by utilizing positioning information provided by sensors integrated into VZ-Line scanners,” the company said in a release. “The combination of basic position estimation utilizing this onboard sensor data along with a new algorithm for aligning scans without retro-reflectors or precise positioning enables a final, fine adjustment of all scans to produce a seamless, fully registered point cloud.”

Viametris will be attending the SPAR Europe conference, November 12-14, at the World Forum, in the Hague. Learn more at
