Leica Cyclone IMPORTER
Importing 3rd party scanner data
The Leica Geosystems Cyclone and CloudWorx family of software products represent state-of-the-art point cloud processing solutions. While Leica Geosystems also provides the industry’s leading laser scanners, some organisations have a need to utilise data from other vendors’ scanners, yet still want to take advantage of the capabilities of Leica Geosystems software and prefer to do so in the most efficient way.
In addition to a user’s ability to work with any scan data in neutral formats such as ASCII, PTS, PTX, and PTG, Cyclone software allows Cyclone and CloudWorx users to work with point cloud data from third-party scanners in the native data format directly output by these scanners. This capability avoids time-consuming data conversion steps to neutral data formats and it minimises the size of imported files for what are often large data sets.
The ability for Leica Geosystems to provide this native data format import capability from third-party laser scanners is based on direct agreements with scanner manufacturers who want users of their scan data to be able to work efficiently within Cyclone and CloudWorx software.Supported Third-Party 3D Scanner Manufacturers
