Bentley Map Enterprise

2D/3D Desktop GIS and Mapping Software


Use a GIS that does it all. Create, maintain, analyze, and share your geospatial, engineering, and business information in a powerful, yet familiar MicroStation environment. Work confidently with engineering-quality GIS to produce quality maps and unify disparate 2D/3D data. 


Work directly with point clouds, raster data, imagery and scalable terrain models to speed your workflows. 


Eliminate disparate data and improve interoperability (Oracle Spatial, Esri File Geodatabase, Esri SHP files, Microsoft SQL Server Spatial, i-models, Bing Maps, and more).


Save time and eliminate rework with engineering-accurate data creation, editing, mapping, imaging, and 3D animation features. 


Use a strong yet flexible application program interface (API) for developing custom GIS applications. 


Increase productivity and improve decision making by giving field personnel fast access from a tablet with the Bentley Map Mobile app.


Produce cartographic maps 



Manage geospatial information 



Maintain 3D city models 





Capture existing context in 3D 

  Integrate engineering data, survey data, point clouds, and digital imagery to create and update highly accurate 3D city information models and databases. Automatically create 3D reality meshes of cities. 

Conduct 2D and 3D spatial analysis 


Analyze data with tools for buffering, overlays, thematic maps, and 3D clash detection. Perform shadow and solar analysis. 


Create animations, videos, and fly-throughs 


Produce high-resolution orthographic and perspective images by rending snapshots of any size. Set image size and scales using output rulers, scale, and positioning for accurate reuse. Take advantage of intuitive time-based fly-through and object animation system for quick and easy movie production. 


Create scalable terrain models 


Use and display very large terrain models to increase return on investment on large datasets. Display scalable terrain models in a variety of modes, such as smooth shading with shadows, aspect angle, elevation, slope, contours, and more. Synchronize terrain models with source data such as DGN files, point-cloud data, and more. 


Develop custom GIS applications 


Create your own custom GIS application, tailored to your needs. The software is designed with a remarkable degree of flexibility and has an extensive API supporting custom development using C/C++, C#, .NET and other modern programming languages. The kit includes extensive documentation and samples. 


Incorporate data in native Esri formats 


Improve interoperability by incorporating data in native Esri formats. Import, export, or reference Esri SHP files. Connect and perform direct transactions with File Geodatabase. 


Incorporate geospatial data from spatial databases 


View and import Web Feature Service (WFS) data directly. Access, update, and manage spatial data stored in Oracle Spatial, Microsoft SQL Server, and Esri File Geodatabase in a seamless and intuitive way. 


Maintain 3D city models 


Edit, maintain, and manage your 3D city model data including unstructured and structured data such as geospatial, architectural, and engineering designs, point clouds, and reality meshes. Seamlessly integrate with enterprise spatial databases such as Oracle Spatial and SQL Server Spatial. 


Manage geospatial information 


Overcome the challenge of managing, collaborating on, and sharing geospatial and related data in a federated environment by combining map-based interface with project, document, and workflow management capabilities. Navigate and retrieve content based on specific locations in a controlled and secure way. 


Manage land information and records 

  Optimize your land information management with federated geospatial data management, open spatial databases, and 2D and 3D parcel management for land registration, information, and tax purposes. 

Model cadastres in 2D and 3D 


Create and integrate 2D and 3D plans based on 3D imagery and vector data. Detect interference between objects and validate the data integrity of survey and parcels. Manage structured data within geospatial database and unstructured data to link registers and legal documents to land tax parcels. 


Model geospatial objects 


Create intelligent geospatial objects with advanced 2D and 3D design productivity innovations using interactive snapping tools. Use tools for dimensioning, annotation, raster display, printing, publishing, and much more. 


Process point clouds 


Work on huge datasets with billions of points and rapidly load and unload point-cloud models. Take advantage of real-time, high-performance streaming that provides incredible display performance while visually maximizing point-cloud density, clarity, and detail. 


Process raster images 


Use raster processing to add visualization and context to your infrastructure projects. Take advantage of immediate editing of raster data to improve the quality of your project output. Lower costs associated with data maintenance by readily using legacy raster drawings in your workflow. 


Produce cartographic maps 


Author and publish high quality, accurate cartographic and thematic maps. Create multiple pages in map books with borders and populated fields, dynamic labeling and text placement, grid and graticule generation, drop shadows, halo effects, and high fidelity printing and publishing. 


Register vector and raster images 

  Use intuitive WYSIWYG image warping for dynamic warping that overlays vector data on the uncorrected image. Verify the transformation model before resampling the image. Use transformation of the vector data working with the same model and batch resampling of images
