New Leica Cyclone II TOPO Software

Leica Geosystems (Switzerland) has released their next-generation software for quickly creating accurate topographic maps from laser scan data. The new software, Leica Cyclone II TOPO, is intended for standard CAD techs and does not require specialised skills in 3D or laser scanning. Leica Geosystems' High-Definition Surveying (HDS) laser scanners and software are used for rapidly surveying sites and structures to capture their "as-is" or "as-built" condition with extraordinary detail. The resulting rich, laser scan data sets have, however, been considered by many as challenging for non-specialists to process into traditional 2D topographic maps. Leica Cyclone II TOPO overcomes this office... (read more)

Sparking New Markets for Photogrammetry

SmartTech, South Africa
SmartTech was established in 1996 in Cape Town, South Africa by the current president, Spencer Allen. The company is dedicated to the development of software for surveyors, photogrammetrists and related professions. Our goal is to provide practical, efficient and cost-effective solutions, from raw field-data to final product, electronic and/or hard copy. Prior to the official registration of SmartTech as a closed corporation in 1997, we recognised a definite need for survey-related tools which could bridge the gap between raw field-data and data analysis and design systems such as GIS and engineering design applications. Out of this need the uSMART mapping... (read more)
