Bentley Map Enterprise V8i (SELECTseries 4)

Powerful, Extensible 2D/3D GIS for the Worlds Infrastructure

Bentley Map Enterprise is a fully featured GIS that is

intrinsically 3D. It is designed to address the unique needs
of organizations that map, plan, design, build, and operate the
worlds infrastructure. Bentley Map Enterprise supports the
creation, maintenance, analysis, and sharing of 2D and 3D
geospatial information, even in the field. It is also ideal for
developing custom GIS applications.

Support for Leading Spatial Databases

Bentley Map Enterprise supports Oracle Spatial and Microsoft SQL Server Spatial
databases that allow organizations to store and manage very large volumes of spa-
tial data. Bentley Map Enterprise can edit 2D and 3D data directly in any standard Image courtesy: City of Quebec

Image and Point-cloud Processing Symbology Synchronized With Attribution

Bentley Map Enterprise allows you to work directly with point clouds, raster data, Bentley Map Enterprise has administrative tools to define features, attributes,
imagery, and scalable terrain models to speed geospatial workflows. symbology, behavior, and placement tools. It also includes tools to promote simple
geometries to intelligent features with full attribution. The product ensures that
Intelligent Geospatial Object Creation feature symbology remains synchronized with attribution.
Bentley Map Enterprise includes advanced 2D and 3D design productivity innova-
tions to create and maintain engineering-quality spatial data. Geospatial objects Powerful Rendering Tools
can be intelligently created with ease using interactive snapping tools. Bentley Powerful 3D rendering tools are included to generate scenes and fly-throughs of
Map Enterprise also includes dimensioning, annotation, raster display and editing, urban models. Capabilities include shadow studies, line of sight, view corridors,
printing, publishing, and much more. street profiles, disaster scenario studies, and more.

Spatial Analysis and Presentation Advanced Map Finishing Tools

The software also includes a full collection of spatial analysis and presentation Bentley Map Enterprises advanced text display capabilities allow map features
capabilities using 2D and 3D data. Among these are tools for creating buffers to be presented with drop shadows, halo effects, linear gradated fill, cartographic
around objects, performing topology overlays, creating thematic maps, 3D collision styles, and other map finishing effects. Advanced support for the placement and
detection, labeling, and more. manipulation of curved text enables users to create and modify text and annota-
tions associated with any spatial element.
Improved Interoperability
