GeoDigital International Purchases Two More Riegl Sensors to Increase its Fleet to Ten

At the ASPRS event in Orlando FL, Alastair Jenkins President & CEO of GeoDigital International (GeoDigital) (left) handed over a check to Jim Van Rens, President of Riegl USA (right) for the purchase of two (2) additional Riegl Sensors to compliment GeoDigital sensor fleet.

The accuracy, reliability and support provided to us by Riegl is a key reason why GeoDigital has utilized them in our data acquisition systems and this has in turn allowed us to become the largest provider of Helicopter and ground based corridor data acquisition to the Ulility and infrastructure sectors" said Alastair Jenkins

We are pleased to continue our support to an innovative company like GeoDigital, a relationship we have built over many years. With this purchase GeoDigital will have acquired a total of ten (10) Riegl-based LiDAR data acquisition systems from Riegl and we look forward to building our relationship into the future stated Jim Van Rens.

GeoDigital has invested millions of dollars in continuously pushing the limits of the underlying technology and evolving innovative solutions that are tailored for a specific business need. Each advancement must meet the simple standard of producing more valuable information, more cost effectively, and within a shorter period of time.

We have been actively listening to the stakeholders in the utility sector, including regulators, and have specifically worked with companies such as Riegl USA to build systems and products to address the challenges faced by the industry. said Alastair Jenkins.

About GeoDigital International
GeoDigital International provides the most advanced vegetation LiDAR and airborne asset mapping solutions in the industry. GeoDigitals highly trained professionals have mapped more than 300,000 line miles and over 850,000 structures worldwide. GeoDigital uses time-tested expertise and technology proven to reduce client costs while providing critical data for vegetation clearance and maintenance reports, inventory analysis, regulatory compliance, and security issues. GeoDigital provides cutting-edge imagery and LiDAR through the use of a patented, stabilized data acquisition unit and industry-leading software. The LiDAR data and digital photos (oblique and ortho) are geo-referenced for high accuracy spatial positioning of features and assets. The resulting data can be integrated into an existing GIS or mapping program. The LiDAR data is survey accurate and can be used for engineering applications such a line re-rating or new construction. GeoDigital provides on-line access to the digital photos and LiDAR information so vegetation managers can quickly identify and rectify maintenance issues and demonstrate compliance with regulatory requirements.
