Tulloch Mapping Purchases the FIRST RIEGL VMX-2HA!

RIEGL is pleased to announce that Tulloch Mapping, based in Canada, has become the first company in the world to purchase the RIEGL VMX-2HA high speed, high performance dual scanner mobile mapping system!

Tulloch Mapping was one of the early adopters of RIEGL’s VMX system and technology, purchasing a VMX-250 in 2011. Since that time, the company has deployed the unit on hundreds of projects throughout North America, with outstanding results across the board. It was natural then, for the firm to explore the option of purchasing a next generation VMX system when the time was right. After seeing the VMX-1HA system in action and evaluating results, Tulloch decided a VMX-HA series system would enhance their survey and mapping offering, and decided to proceed with the purchase of a new system in September 2017.

“We are excited to announce our first customer for the RIEGL VMX-2HA only weeks after introduction at INTERGEO. Tulloch has helped grow the mobile mapping market by providing excellent data to their clients. We are thrilled to continue working with such an innovative company like Tulloch.” said Joshua France, Mobile Systems Segment Manager of RIEGL USA.

The RIEGL VMX-2HA is a high speed, high performance dual scanner mobile mapping system which provides dense, accurate, and feature-rich data at highway speeds. With 2 million measurements and 500 scan lines per second, this turnkey solution is ideally suited for survey-grade mobile mapping applications.

The powerful technology in the RIEGL VMX-2HA is comprised of two RIEGL VUX-1HA high accuracy LiDAR sensors and a high performance INS/GNSS unit, housed in an aerodynamically-shaped protective cover. A camera interface for up to 9 optional cameras enables complementation of the LiDAR data with precisely geo-reference images.

“We chose the next generation VMX-2HA RIEGL Mobile Scanning System for a number of reasons” stated James Ferguson, General Manager of Tulloch Mapping. “Our main considerations are that the system be reliable under a variety of field conditions, that it provides a consistent high end data product, and that we are on the leading edge of where mobile scanning data collection and processing technology is at.”

Craig Sheriff, Operations Manager at Tulloch concurred and added, “This new system will allow us to extend field capabilities for our high accuracy corridor mapping requirements, and as well, maximize workflows and production outputs”.

RIEGL is honored to have Tulloch as the first customer of this fantastic new system and are very excited to have Tulloch add another RIEGL system to their lineup!
