RiWaveLIB provides straightforward and well-documented access to the digitized echo signals recorded by selected RIEGL laser scanners during data acquisition. The digitized echo signals, also known as waveform data, are the basis for the so-called full waveform analysis which deduces ranging information and additional data from the waveforms. Additionally, the library enables access to the time stamp and measurement direction for each measurement and thus enables the user to calculate point cloud data based on their own algorithms for the full waveform analysis.

RiWaveLIB provides access to both waveform data formats used by RIEGL, the SDF file format used by RIEGL LMS-Q560 and RIEGL LMS-Q680i, and the WFM file format as used by the RIEGL VZ-400 and VQ-type Laser Scanners with waveform data option. The application programmer gets access to the waveform data for both file formats using a common interface.
