MountainsMap® for Profilometry

MountainsMap® is dedicated surface analysis software for 3D optical profilers measuring topography, scanning 3D surface profilometers using contact or non-contact techniques and 2D profilometers.

MountainsSEM® for Scanning Electron Microscopy

MountainsSEM® is dedicated image enhancement, 3D reconstruction and metrology software for scanning electron microscopes (SEM) including tools for colorization and particle analysis.

MountainsSPIP® for Scanning Probe Microscopy

MountainsSPIP® is dedicated imaging and analysis software for scanning probe microscopy techniques including atomic force microscopy (AFM), STM, MFM, SNOM, CSAFM, KPFM, etc.

MountainsLab® for multi-instrument compatibility

MountainsLab® software is the ultimate, industry-standard surface analysis suite and point of confluence for data from any kind of surface measuring instrument, the ideal solution for labs working with different types of microscopes and profilers.


April 16, 2019

Mountains® 8 will be released soon. Check out some of the new features and find out how to update.


03 July

Meet us during the 22nd Met&Props Conference on Metrology and Properties of Surfaces from July 3 to 5 in Lyon, France.

Digital Surf has been developing surface imaging & metrology software for profilers and microscopes since 1989

Our main focus is on working as a partner with instrument manufacturers worldwide, in the fields of surface metrology and microscopy. Mountains® software is now offered by the majority of profilometer and microscope manufacturers and is embedded in their equipment or available as an option.

Digital Surf also provides Mountains® software packages directly to instrument users. Mountains® has an installed base of 15,000+ licenses worldwide, is available in 11 languages, supports ISO and national metrology standards and is supplied by 50+ instrument manufacturers.

Application areas include: automotive, material science, semiconductors, medical, aerospace, MEMS, renewable energy, etc.


Toward improved integration of bioceramic implants

Bioceramics are particularly useful in the repair and reconstruction of bone. A group of researchers at the University of Limoges investigated the impact of bioceramic surface topography and composition on protein adhesion forces.

Quality control of plastic graining on dashboard

A French car manufacturer performed quality control of automotive dashboard material (plastic). Measured data was checked to be in compliance with ISO 25178 parameters.

What is a “shell” or freeform surface?

With the release of Mountains® 8 comes the possibility to load and visualize a new kind of data, known as “Shells” or “Freeform surfaces”. Christophe Mignot takes a closer look at this new data type.
