  • Leica Cyclone & NCTech iSTAR panoramic camera.

    Deliver HDR colourised point clouds.

    Leica Cyclone and the NCTech iSTAR panoramic camera delivers fast, accurate HDS colourised pointclouds.

    Leica Geosystem now offers the iSTAR panoramic camera integrated with the HDS scanning workflow. Together, Leica Cylone software and the iSTAR camera deliver higher resolution HDR images, seamlessly improving field and office workflows for creating an immersive coloured point cloud.

    In the field, users simply capture an iSTAR image at the laser scanner location with simple push of a button; either indoors or outdoors. Anyone can quickly and easily operate the imaging system without any photographic experience.

    In the office, Cyclone automates the process of fitting the image data to the scan data, typically within two pixel accuracy. This dramatically improved point cloud colouring, increases user comprehension and provides spectacular visualisation in deliverables, such as TruViews or Fly-though movies.

    • SmartPicks
    • TruSpace
      • use TruSpace with imagery
      • draw over a picture within TruSpace - civil, architecture, BIM etc..
      • TruSpace makes a project significantly easier to visualise
      • Cloudworx fitting commands available directly from TruSpace
      • eg. a pipe run in TruSpace.  Pick it, and have it found via region grow.
    • Colour Mapping - change colour of point clouds, switch from RGB to Intensity, on-the-fly
    • Fit Section command – architecture, BIM, and plant.  Easily fit lines
    • UCS Orientation Tools - One click to place the UCS.
    • Survey Features - find ground points etc.
    • Point Extraction - to use with the final AutoCAD data to create a mesh.
    • Fit centre lines accurately to scanned pipes - use centre lines as a basis for intelligent modelling

  • Leica Geosystems JetStream

    JetStream is high-speed, gaming-like technology brought to 3D point clouds.  This major step forward signals an end to ‘cloud regeneration’ after every pan and zoom in your CAD environment.


    JetStream regenerates instantly enabling productivity increases of up to 40%. Jetstream Video. The datasheet is attached below for your perusal.

    With two or more users, the JetStream Project Vault Enterprise option allows multiple users to work simultaneously.  Projects can be completed much faster in this way and this enables substantial increases in return on a company’s investment.

    Pricing is completely customisable, as we have introduced a new subscription based solution.  This enables a single user to take advantage of this unique technology for as low as £1,950 ex VAT in the first year and £1,165 per year for subsequent years.  Volume discounts apply such that multiple connectors to the JetStream ProjectVault are even more attractive.  A 5x user server system would operate for less than £4 ex VAT per day per user, based on a 20 work day month.

    JetStream continues Leica’s dominance at the top of the point cloud data handling market.  With the world’s leading registration software, unparalleled data handling of large projects, and now a further major world-leading step in project speed and usability.

  • SCCS Rail Day IMS Demonstration

    SCCS recently hosted two rail demonstration days which were well attended by esteemed members of the rail surveying industry throughout UK including representatives from both London Underground and Network Rail.

    This year’s rail days where specifically focused upon the release of the Amberg IMS (Inertial measurement system) which has been recently added to the Amberg survey trolley portfolio. Following a great deal of interest at the Railtex 2015 and Geo Business 2015 exhibitions the two rail days gave invited parties the opportunity to see this equipment in action and join the discussion surrounding its place within the UK survey market.

    Jim Bushell, Track Survey manager, London Underground
    "With the limited time and accessibility during track renewals on London Underground the Amberg IMS system has great potential to improve the efficiency of the pre and post work surveys thanks to its single trolley long chord survey methodology. The results from initial trials look very promising and we have further testing planned over the summer and hope to implement the system in the autumn."

    Dan Liddle, LNWS On Track Machine Engineer, Network Rail
    "On LNWS we have been utilising the Amberg VMS system for the past 18months for pre tamping surveys of our absolute track geometry route.  This has proven to deliver a substantial cost and efficiency saving on previous survey methods without compromising on the quality of the surveys.
    The new IMS system looks to have the potential to greatly increase efficiency compared with the VMS system.  We have tests planned at the end of June to enable us to fully understand what this looks like."
