  • 3D views of roughness and waviness surfaces.
  • Calculation of ISO 25178 surface texture parameters allowing quantitative description of each sample.
  • Statistics for surface texture interpretation.
  • Analysis report generated automatically.
  • MountainsMap® tools used

  • 3D view of surface topography.
  • Advanced ISO 16610 filters.
  • ISO 25178 height and functional parameters.
  • Texture isotropy and direction.


  • Analysis of geometric surface texture patterns allowing assessment of Neolithic sculpture manufacturing process.
