ARANZ (Applied Research Associates NZ Ltd) was established in 1995 as a private-sector research and development organization in Christchurch, New Zealand.
FastScan is an innovative handheld 3D laser scanner, and FastRBF is the groundbreaking software used to model very large 3D datasets. These were the original developments that led ARANZ into many and diverse markets, from geological modelling and mining to medical imaging and the movie industry.
ARANZ has now become two new and separate companies:
- ARANZ Geo Ltd which develops and markets Leapfrog suite of products for the mining, hydrogeology, and geothermal industries.
- ARANZ Medical Ltd which develops and markets Silhouette wound imaging, measurement and documentation systems.
All inquiries about ARANZ technologies and market activities should be directed to one or both of these organizations.
