RiPROCESS is designed for managing, processing, analyzing, and visualizing data acquired with airborne laser scanning systems (ALS systems) and mobile laser scanning systems (MLS systems) based on RIEGL Laser Scanners. Data export in geodetic systems is supported by the GeoSys Manager.

RiPROCESS is project oriented and enables the user to manage all data acquired and processed within a single project. This data includes project data, scanning system information data such as mounting information and calibration data, laser raw data, e.g., the digitized echo signals from the RIEGL LMS-Q560/Q680i laser scanner, position and orientation data from the IMU/GNSS system, intermediate data files, search tree files for fast data access, and geo-referenced point cloud data with additional descriptors for every measured coordinate.

Data processing tasks include, e.g., full waveform analysis and geo-referencing laser data by merging it with the trajectory data derived from INS/GNSS data. These functions are provided by RIEGL Software RiANALYZE and RiWORLD, respectively. RiPROCESS is intended for mass data production in a multiple-workstation environment. RiPROCESS makes use of these programs, which may be installed on different workstations and are accessed via RiSERVER.

RiPROCESS allows data export in the widely-used LAS format (amongst others) to execute common tasks such as classification, triangulation and decimation by third-party software packages. The included GeoSys Manager offers a powerful tool for exporting the geo-referenced point cloud in Carthesian ECEF, geographic and local grid coordinates. An interface to RiSCAN PRO, the accompanying software for RIEGL's terrestrial 3D scanners, allows utilizing further visualization and point cloud manipulation tools.
