RiPROCESS Software Module for Waveform Analysis, MTA Processing, Coordinate Transformation and Point Cloud Storage

RiUNITE is the core software module for LiDAR data processing in RIEGL's RiPROCESS point cloud management suite for kinematic laser data.


It facilitates the four main tasks required for accurate point cloud generation.

- Waveform Analysis = RiANALYZE Functionality
RiUNITE extracts discrete targets from the digitized echo signals by means of Full Waveform Analyis (FWA). It also handles Online Waveform Processed (OWP) targets.

- Multiple-Time-Around Resolution = RiMTA Functionality
High measurement rates over long ranges typically result in range ambiguities. The data of instruments with Multiple-Time-Around (MTA) capability include information which is used by RiUNITE to resolve these ambiguities.

-Coordinate Transformation = RiWORLD Functionality
RiUNITE combines the laser scan data in the Scanner's Own Coordinate System (SOCS) with the recorded position and orientation data (POS) to a dataset in a geocentered coordinate system (e.g. WGS84, ITRS, ETRS).

- Point Cloud Storage
RiUNITE reads and writes the RIEGL Data Base (RDB). RDB is the central data storage format for visualization, filtering, and adjustment, that serves all major RiPROCESS software modules.
