HORN, Austria, May 9, 2014—The RIEGL LMS-Q780 airborne laser scanner was awarded with the Geospatial World Award in the Geospatial Technology Innovation LiDAR category at the Geospatial World Forum Conference in Switzerland.

“We are proud to receive this prestigious award for the LMS-Q780. We are especially happy to receive our second Geospatial Innovation Award in a row for our airborne products after winning the award for our topo-bathymetric laser scanner, the VQ-820-G, last year” stated Peter Rieger, RIEGL’s Airborne Laser Scanning Division Manager, who was presented the award during the Award Night and Gala Dinner of the Geospatial World Forum 2014 in Geneva, Switzerland.
