2015 - Seeing is Groundbreaking

To further enhance construction workflows, in 2015 we introduced the 1st 3D viewer in Leica Geosystems field software supporting 3D designs. The world is built in 3D and construction field software should support building that world.

Leica iCON

2017 - Layout Object Support

In 2017 the 1st construction field software was launched, supporting model-based layouts using IFC data with full graphical selection support and an elevation filter to isolate key work packages.

2020 - Capture. Verify. Layout.

In 2020, iCON verification app was introduced to verify on-site construction and point cloud support with the Leica Nova MS60 Multistation for the most complete layout and verification workflow on the market.

Leica iCON

2021 - Machine Control

In 2021 Leica launched iCON site’s first machine control application. The differential milling pilot for Wirtgen cold planers brings milling to the next level, saving you time and money
