December 6, 2001
Cyra Technologies, Inc. released the latest version of its software suite for processing data from 3D Laser Scanning systems, Cyclone v3.1. Cyclone v3.1 has a suite of three modules, Cyclone MODEL v3.1, Cyclone-MANAGE-v3.1, and, Cyclone SCAN 3.1. Cyclone v3.1 has several new features: Faster navigation of large point clouds via graphics based on “level-of-detail” (LOD) imaging; Advanced data compression that helps reduce point cloud loading times up to 50 percent; Faster workflow using a “limit box” that lets users view only regions of interest; Faster workflow via merged “ModelSpaces” that allow users to merge their work; Cross-database referencing that reduces file copying on large projects; Dedicated “ControlSpace” that facilitates registration of multiple point clouds to each other and to control survey points and customizable ASCII output for easier, faster interface with other applications.
