This includes wizard-like automation routines that do all the work for the user as well as the industries richest set of QA/QC and survey adjustment and analysis tools.

There are other modules dedicated to generating a vast array of deliverables from reports to maps and 3D models, movies/animations, and light weight 3D data formats that can be distributed freely over the web. These modules support a wide range of industries and workflows including civil engineering, as-built 3D models, topographic surveys, BIM models and much more.

Leica Cyclone is comprised of individual software modules for different needs and for flexible product deployment:
