Leica Cyclone 3D Point Cloud Processing Software

A total point cloud delivery solution

Leica Cyclone is the market-leading point cloud processing software. It is a family of software modules that provides the widest set of work process options for 3D laser scanning projects in engineering, surveying, construction and related applications.

For organisations that need to add point cloud data to their process, Leica Cyclone is the only solution that can create all of the deliverables you need and serve them to you seamlessly across your downstream products. Unlike other scanning providers, the Cyclone ecosystem efficiently delivers on the entire set of project requirements; which ensures your organisation’s profitability.

The Cyclone family of products is a key part of the complete solution. The various Cyclone modules take users from start to finish for every type of point cloud project.

There are modules to take advantage of the unique Leica Geosystems laser scanners field data collection operations, such as traverse, back-sight and resection as well as Visual Inertial System (VIS) links created by the Leica RTC360 for rich survey-grade collection and registration of data. This includes wizard-like automation routines that do all the work for the user as well as the industry's 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.

Still others serve as your central source of truth, allowing you to connect the work of field teams and CAD technicians and create user communities to safeguard your data against misuse.

With the release of Leica Geosystems’ Universal Project file, LGS, users have total flexibility to exchange data from Cyclone between all Leica Geosystems laser scanning software, delivering your complete digital reality project data in a single file for all your collaboration and deliverable creation needs.

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