Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, announced the Leica Cyclone FIELD 360 laser scanning mobile-device app won an iF DESIGN AWARD 2019.

Along with user-experience (UX) company Ergosign, Leica Geosystems submitted the app under the category of communication.  For 66 years, the iF DESIGN AWARD has been recognized as an arbiter of quality for exceptional design. The Cyclone FIELD 360 app was selected by a 67-member jury, made up of independent experts from all over the world, from among 6,375 entries from 52 countries.

The Cyclone FIELD 360 mobile-device app is a fundamental element of the Leica RTC360 3D reality capture solution. The app forms a link between 3D data collection in the field using the Leica RTC360 laser scanner and data registration in the office using the Leica Cyclone REGISTER 360 post-processing software. It lets the user automatically collect, register and review scanned and image data on site using a tablet. As a result, the system provides a positive user experience in the field of 3D reality capture even to inexperienced users
