Leica Geosystems offers the Leica Cyclone II TOPO laser scanning software designed to take the complexity out of creating highly accurate topographic maps from laser scan data. With a simplified CAD-like interface and familiar office automation displays, the Leica Cyclone II TOPO features a map-like, top-down user interface that lets users easily view, extract and create topographic maps as well as associated cross-section and isometric views. Laser scanners such as the Leica Geosystems ScanStation 2 and the HDS6000 are increasingly deployed to rapidly survey sites, structures, and roads to collect ˜as-built” data which in turn are processed into traditional 2D topographic maps. Leica Cyclone II TOPO overcomes a major office processing hurdle, allowing everyday CAD techs to create maps from laser scan data as fast as or even faster than making maps from survey data collected conventionally.
