Leica Cyclone 5.8VIEWER & VIEWER ProPowerful yet affordable 3D point cloud visualization, measurement, markup, and dataexchange software for professionalsAccurate distance measurements can easilybe created to enhance data analysisLayers and red lines can be administeredthrough “Manager” dialoguesLeica Cyclone VIEWER and VIEWER Proprovide professionals with powerful 3D viewing andnavigation of rich High-Definition Survey (HDS)point cloud data and associated 3D models.Cyclone VIEWER is free standalone software for 3Dviewing only, while affordable Cyclone VIEWER Proprovides additional, valuable measurement, markup,and data exchange capabilities. Professionalscan analyze laser scan and 3D model datasetsquickly and collaborate for better informed projectdecisions.Powerful 3D Navigation and VisualizationLeica Cyclone VIEWER and VIEWER Pro have manyfeatures that let users work efficiently with richlaser scan data sets. Users can smoothly fly throughand around point clouds, as well as pan, zoomand rotate views. Cyclone's Level of Detail (LOD)graphics display engine provides highly efficient 3Dvisualization and manipulation of even the largestpoint clouds and models.For improved comprehension of dense point clouds,advanced visualization modes allow users to “seethrough” walls, apply shaded rendering, enhanceedge display, and more. Additional visualizationtools such as layers and 3D Limit Boxes allow usersto focus in on specific areas of laser scan andmodel data.Collaboration via DatabasesCyclone's unique Object Database Client/Serverarchitecture lets multiple users operate on the samescan data set simultaneously. Users can collaboratedirectly and share data across networks.Data Management and ExchangeLeica Cyclone VIEWER Pro also serves as a versatiledata exchange module. Numerous import andexport formats are supported. Previously modeledcontent can be easily exported into industrystandard formats for further use in other software.Industry standard, customizable and vendor-specificpoint cloud ASCII data export formats facilitate dataexchange with other 3D point cloud processingand CAD packages.Integrated Suite of Leica Geosystems SoftwareModulesOther modules include Leica Cyclone SCAN,Leica Cyclone REGISTER, Leica Cyclone MODEL,Leica Cyclone SERVER, Leica Cyclone II TOPO,Leica Cyclone PUBLISHER, and Leica TruView forfree panoramic viewing-measuring-markup of laserscans by anyone. The Leica CloudWorx familyof applications allows users to efficiently view andwork with scan data directly within popular CADapplications.The customizable Import Manager givesflexibility during data transferMeasurement and MarkupCyclone VIEWER Pro’s rich set of complex 3Dmeasurement tools enables users to measuredirectly between selected scan points and/ormodeled surfaces. Measurements stored duringone “session” can be recalled and managed. Userscan also easily markup scan images with redlinetools to effectively communicate with others.“Redline Manager” allows users to handle multiplemarkups at once, including appropriate view pointsfor individual redlines.
