Easy-to-learn software optimizes

High-Definition Survey projects

Leica Cyclone SCAN is versatile, easy-to-learn laser scanner

control software that optimizes High-Definition Survey

projects.

Cyclone SCAN 7.1 gives Leica Geosystems HDS scanner operators

unmatched scan control and multiple workflow options.

Users enjoy greater flexibility in managing a wide range of site

logistics and project requirements, all with renowned Leica

accuracy.

Cyclone SCAN operates time-of-flight and phase-based Leica

Geosystems scanners. Scanner-specific features let users get the

most out of each type of scanner. Users can take advantage of

workflows like traversing, setting up over a known point, and

resectioning; full-dome scanning; applying internal or external

camera images; wireless and unattended operation; and, a wealth

of field QA tools. Cyclone SCAN features also speed office processing

and reduce file sizes.

Features and Benefits

•nSmartScan Technology

•nField geo-reference and auto-register*

•nAuto target recognize/extract/re-check

•nCheck scans against independent control

•nField QA checks of targets, features

•nTraverse, resection, stakeout, point*

•nAuto-calibrate and apply images to scans*

•nX-function, LandXML, ASCII

* Some features are scanner dependent


Leica Cyclone SCAN 7.1

High Field Efficiency and Comprehensive Control

Leica Cyclone SCAN provides high productivity and great scanner control.

SmartScan Technology provides fully adjustable, horizontal and vertical scan

density control*. Traditional traverse methods are supported including side

shots. Traverse editor supports non-sequential station setups, and full reconfiguring

and management of traverse data in the field and office. Scripting

allows different parts of a scene to be automatically scanned at different scan

densities. Targets are recognized and extracted.

Automated routines can find all candidate targets in the

scene. Once the first target is found by the search

algorithm users can easily acquire the exact center

point and name targets, even while the system

searches for more targets.

Efficiency in the Office

Various scan filters can automatically exclude capture of scan data that is

outside of the desired scan area, not accurate enough due to excessive range,

etc. Convenient target ID’s, internal, automatically calibrated high-resolution

camera images* and automatic linking of scans with images* are all additional

handy aids for speeding office processing. Cyclone SCAN’s support of “tilt

sensor enabled” field methods* can even produce automatically registered point

clouds as they’re collected in the field.

Ensuring Leica Geosystems Accuracy

To ensure proper scan coverage and density, scans can be viewed on a laptop in

the field. Users can check scan data against elevation data collected by other

methods. Scan targets can be extracted and registered/geo-referenced in the

field and control point data and coordinates can be imported and exported.

Scanners with dual-axis tilt sensing can be monitored to ensure level accuracy,

while traverse closure reports and other standard reports for resection, setup

over known point, and backsight provide valuable QA data analysis.

Easy to Learn

It‘s easy to select desired scan areas from rectified, high-resolution camera

images or a quick “preview scan”. Integrating HDS data with data from Leica’s

TPS and GPS 1200 series is fully supported via X-function while other instruments

are supported via standard LandXML or ASCII formats.

Leica Cyclone SCAN can operate all of the various timeof-flight

and phase-based Leica scanners: HDS2500,

HDS3000, HDS4500, HDS6000, HDS6100, HDS6200,

Efficient Point Cloud Manipulation & Navigation

Leica Cyclone SURVEY has many features that let users work efficiently with rich

laser scan data sets. Cyclone's Level of Detail (LOD) graphics display and

visualization modes allow users to “see through” walls, apply shaded rendering,

or enhance edges for improved comprehension of dense point clouds. Texture

mapping tools allow users to accurately “drape” photos of the scanned scene

onto point clouds for an even more realistic viewing experience. Cyclone

SURVEY’s friendly key plan and TruSpace panoramic viewing modes provide

intuitive navigation and viewing options.

One of the many powerful measurement and annotation

tools is an automated tool for analyzing and

documenting clearances at overcrossings.

High-Performance Geometric Processing

Accurately produce a selected geometry type, such as planes and topographic

surfaces. Least-squares fitting and quality-of-fit statistics ensure reliable results,

while Cyclone’s advanced memory management provides high performance.

Rich Tool Set for Civil/Survey and Other Applications

For excavation and grading, Surface Deviation tools provide accurate quantity

calculations. Volume and area for cut and fill are precisely calculated. Output

options include volumes, contours, and/or tables including elevation differences

at a user-specified grid sample. A Clearance tool even finds and reports absolute

minimum vertical and horizontal clearances for overpasses, bridges, interchanges,

and overhead sign structures. A Virtual Surveyor tool emulates a data

collector for creating topographic maps.

Leica Cyclone MODEL 7.1

Efficient Point Cloud Manipulation & Navigation

Leica Cyclone has many features that let users work efficiently with rich laser

scan data sets. Cyclone's Level of Detail (LOD) graphics display and visualization

modes allow users to “see through” walls, apply shaded rendering, or enhance

edges for improved comprehension of dense point clouds. Texture mapping

tools allow users to accurately “drape” photos of the scanned scene onto point

clouds for an even more realistic viewing experience. Cyclone MODEL’s friendly

key plan and TruSpace panoramic viewing modes provide intuitive navigation

and viewing options.

The automated “Pipe Run” feature lets users select

points on connected, straight pipe sections and the

system automatically models a best fit pipe run with

elbows in seconds.

Ground surface TINs and other meshes are easily

created and offer great value. Here is an automated

report analyzing cut and fill quantities using “beforeand-after”

scan data of a ground surface.

High-Performance Modeling for a Wide Range of Applications

Accurately model a selected geometry type, such as pipes, planes, and

topographic surfaces. Least-squares fitting and quality-of-fit statistics ensure

reliable results, while Cyclone's advanced memory management provides high

performance.

Wealth of Plant & Structure-specific Tools

Continuous pipe runs, including elbows, can be modeled automatically. Leica

Cyclone MODEL's Piping Mode even lets plant designers add intelligent piping

data including specification, line ID, insulation thickness and SKEYs. Validation of

proposed design models – including clash detection – can be done within Leica

Cyclone or via export to popular plant design applications.

Rich Tool Set for Civil, Architectural and Other Applications

For excavation and grading, Surface Deviation tools provide accurate quantity

calculations. Volume and area for cut and fill are precisely calculated. Output

options include volumes, contours, and/or tables including elevation differences

at a user-specified grid sample. A Clearance tool even finds and reports absolute

minimum vertical and horizontal clearances for overpasses, bridges, interchanges,

and overhead sign structures. A Virtual Surveyor tool emulates a data

collector for creating topographic maps.

the same database over the network

IT-friendly solution for multi-user environments

Leica Cyclone SERVER is standalone server software that can

significantly reduce office schedules for High-Definition Survey

projects when more than one person is available to process laser

scan data. It is particularly beneficial for large projects, multidiscipline

projects, and projects with demanding schedules.

Cyclone SERVER is successfully used for plant, civil, architectural

and other projects.

Cyclone SERVER takes advantage of the powerful Client/Server

Object Database foundation of Cyclone and CloudWorx point

cloud processing modules to enable multiple office staff to

simultaneously access point cloud data, embedded images,

and geometric surface models. This eliminates burdensome data

copying and related synchronization issues, frees disk space, and

provides more reliable access to the project data in network

environments.

Collaborative Work Group Access to Leica Cyclone Databases

Each module of the Leica Cyclone 3D point cloud processing software product

line is based on a Client/Server Object Database foundation. Cyclone SERVER

supports the concurrent connection of up to ten (10) ‘client’ users to the same

data server in a network environment. These clients can be licensees of any

Leica Cyclone or Leica CloudWorx application.

Central Leica Cyclone SERVER for Efficient Database Management

Cyclone SERVER eliminates data redundancy and related synchronization issues,

frees disk space on workstations, and provides more reliable access in network

environments. A dedicated server, administered remotely by authorized users,

can serve databases to Cyclone clients on the same network. Workstations with

licenses of Cyclone software can also contain Leica Cyclone SERVER licenses,

distributing the server load.

Cyclone’s PC-based server products are effective tools for computers with single

or multiple processors. This server based access environment provides a familiar

and compatible data access and management method for organizations already

using network distributed applications such as high-end plant design systems.

In addition, Workstation-based Cyclone installations can selectively locate

projects in an unshared mode, as opposed to offering all data available for

sharing. This offers performance enhancements by relieving the overhead

required to support a multi-user access environment to the data. Users have

the productivity advantage of this capability whenever they choose and can

selectively share the data with their workgroup again at any time.

Leica Cyclone IMPORTER 7.1

Data import from

third-party laser scanners

The Leica Cyclone IMPORTER 7.1 software module provides

users with optimal office efficiency for working with scan

data from third-party scanners within the industry’s most

popular point cloud software solutions: Cyclone and

CloudWorx.

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 organizations have a need to utilize

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 IMPORTER 7.1

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

minimizes 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 Cloud-

Worx software.

Supported Third-Party 3D Laser Scanner Manufacturers

•nFaro

•nRiegl

•nOptech

•nZ+F


Leica Cyclone IMPORTER 7.1

Native format compatability with third-party laser scanners

With Leica Cyclone IMPORTER 7.1 and CloudWorx users can import third-party

laser scanners native formats. This allows the full and efficient use of all

the valuable Cyclone modules and features such as registration, 3D modeling,

data analysis, Cyclone PUBLISHER and TruView, Cyclone II TOPO and all that

the Cyclone modules offer.

Direct importing of data in native format from

third-party scanners provides greater office efficiency

and versatility for Cyclone and CloudWorx users who

need to work with such data.

In addition to individual scans, Cyclone IMPORTER 7.1 also supports the importation

of registration transformations from other vendors. This provides the

flexibility to leverage registration work if it has already been done in another

scanner manufacturer’s software. Therefore, in addition to doing productive work

in Cyclone, IMPORTER also supports a workflow where users can do most of the

work in a third-party system and simply use IMPORTER to bring the data into

Cyclone format for delivery to a customer or to comply with contractual delivery

specifications.

In addition to its direct importing features, Leica Cyclone IMPORTER 7.1 also

supports a vast array of the standard visualization features of Cyclone so it can be

used in a standalone manner. Users can browse the imported data visually.

IMPORTER also supports a long list of other important project data formats such

as BMP, JPG, LandXML, etc.
