This manual was developed by UNAVCO staff to document our best-practices for Riegl terrestrial laser scanner field operation, data collection, and initial data processing. This document is for a tie-point based workflow, using the Riegl VZ400 (but should also be largely applicable to the Z620 and VZ1000 scanners as well).

This document should be detailed enough to guide a user through the standard data collection workflow, and we recommend it as a resource for UNAVCO community members working with UNAVCO Riegl scanners.
