Researchers at Purdue and Harvard universities explored fish scale surfaces in 3D using MountainsMap® software.
A comprehensive description of the surface of snow is crucial for understanding the tribological system between skis and snow. Felix Breitschädel, of the Norwegian Olympic Sports Center, tells us how a novel measurement device is changing our understanding of the surface of snow and constitutes a promising method for future research.

Mountains® represents a very useful toolbox for designing bioinspired smart materials thanks to its simplified toolbars which provide direct access to advanced surface analysis options based on ISO norms. The stereoscopic reconstruction tool for SEM images based on eucentric tilted samples and the 3D interactive animation of models takes electron microscopy to the next level.

I’ve started transitioning to MountainsSPIP® thanks to your highly instructive webinars[…] once you start to get to know the software, it’s very pleasant to use.
Founder of SurfaceChar LLC
I have really enjoyed working with MountainSPIP® and taking advantage of its powerful features. While it does take some time to learn, this software package builds on the success of SPIP Image Metrology to deliver everything we are used to and more. Some of my favorite new capabilities including the ability to save a workflow, improved image visualization and versatile and easy-to-use particle sizing. Well worth the time investment to master this powerful and useful software!
AFM expert, SPM Labs LLC.
I myself have enjoyed working with Mountains® for a number of years. In my opinion, it is essential that AFM users work with specialized software packages such as those based on Digital Surf’s Mountains® platform.
Research scientist, Barcelona Institut of Material Science
We use several different kinds of instruments to characterize our samples. Mountains® provides multiple instrument compatibility and is able to deal with a wide variety of scientific analysis procedures
Research electrochemist, Daido Metal Co., Ltd
I have to say that we did not realize at the beginning all the potential of Mountains®. But from the moment we started to use we were very happy with the user-friendly interface and many available tools for performing image analysis. I would rate as a very satisfied customer.
Institut FEMTO-ST, Besançon (France)
Mountains® software is very versatile. The “operators” are intuitive and it is easy to access the “help” section for technical explanations. Contact with customer support, which is a must for any new user, is always very smooth and I always get a quick answer to my questions.
Senior Lecturer in Sensor Technology for Precision In-process Measurement, Cranfield University
Mountains® is able to read specific files from different instrument manufacturers meaning it allows us to compare the results within the same visual platform. We like how results are visualized and when it comes down to applying your operators, the software is intuitive.
Primary Lab Technician, Agfa-Gevaert
Superb software and great support!
In my opinion, Mountains® is the way to go if you want to raise the bar and get the most out of your topographic datasets.
