Cyra Technologies Inc. Announced Cyclone v4.0

Cyra Technologies Inc. announced Cyclone v4.0. Cyclone-SURVEY v4.0, a trimmed down, more affordable version of Cyclone-MODEL, has been added specifically for those organizations that focus on civil/survey types of projects. Cyra has also added Cyclone-REGISTER v4.0 as a powerful, standalone module for accurately aligning multiple point clouds together. Also added to Cyclone v4.0 is a true color overlay capability as part of SmartScan Technology for its flagship Cyrax 2500 3D Laser Scanner. SmartScan Technology is a set of features that gives users additional scanning controls and tools to scan sites “intelligently.” Using Cyclone v4.0 and a camera-calibrated Cyrax 2500, a user can overlay the scanner’s true color digital video snapshot on top of the captured 3D point cloud. The resulting image can be viewed in 3D. Cyclone-SURVEY v4.0 contains automatic removal of shrubs and brush, TIN and DTM creation, edge fitting for breaklines, creation of contours, intelligent surface model decimation and Virtual Surveyor.
