Equipment

The following is a small excerpt of our portfolio which is offered at the Faculty of Earth Sciences, Geography and Astronomy in the context of the Core Facility "eSurfLab":

 

 

Workshop UZA II

 

Use:
Workshop for maintenance of equipment, storage room

Location:
Vienna

3D Terrestrial Laser Scanner VZ-6000, RIEGL

 

Use:
Portable terrestrial laser scanner for recording surface changes in mm resolutionand with a range up to 6000m. The major advantage of this method is that, in contrast to purely point-based surface measurements - such as GNSS - it provides areal information about a surface and can even partially penetrate vegetation.

Measurement:

The device emits laser beams, which are reflected by the surface to be examined and received again by the device. This results in a so-calledpoint cloud, which has exact position coordinates (x,y,z) for each individual reflected point.

Output:
Highly accurate terrain surface models (digital terrain models, DTM).

Location:
Vienna

Optech ILRIS 3 D Laserscanner

 

Use:
Unlike Riegl's 3D Terrestrial laser scanner, this one is stationary.

Measurement:
The device emits laser beams, which are reflected by the surface to be examined and received again by the device. This results in a so-calledpoint cloud, which has exact position coordinates (x,y,z) for each individual reflected point.

Drilling rig GTR 1100 MF, Geotechnics Dunkel

 

Use:
Core drilling to investigate soil properties and insert inclinometer tubes.
Dynamic probing to determine penetration resistance.
