Engaging software

The Leica Viva GS16 GNSS smart antenna is accompanied with the revolutionary Captivate software, turning complex data into the most realistic and workable 3D models. With easy-to-use apps and familiar touch technology, all forms of measured and design data can be viewed in all dimensions. Leica Captivate spans industries and applications with little more than a simple swipe, regardless of whether you work with GNSS, total stations or both.


Infinitely bridging the field to the office

Leica Infinity imports and combines data from your GNSS, total station and level instruments for one final and accurate result. Processing has never been made easier when all your instruments work in tandem to produce precise and actionable information.
