An automotive manufacturer used MountainsMap® to study parameters associated with wear and lubrication.
A French car manufacturer performed quality control of automotive dashboard material (plastic). Measured data was checked to be in compliance with ISO 25178 parameters.
In the automotive industry, engineers used MountainsMap® to check compliance of components with nominal form.
Friction, core and lubrication zones of a motor cylinder were studied in order to investigate opportunities for improving fuel efficiency and thus reduce harmful emissions. MountainsMap® software was used to provide advanced analysis of the volume of the zones studied.
Tools for measuring surface roughness were used to study stelae and a menhir from the Late Neolithic-Chalcolithic period (around 3000 BC) discovered during the excavation of a prehistoric settlement in the Serra del Mas Bonet in Catalonia (Spain).
Pyramid-shaped solar cells are particularly effective for converting energy from the sun into usable energy without the problem of overheating. In a study on solar cell performance enhancement, industrial researchers used MountainsMap® to visualize surface topography in 3D and overlay a color image of solar cells on topography.
Advanced Research Specialist, 3M Electronics Materials Solutions Division
I have been a MountainsMap user since 1999. The technical support staff at Digital Surf have been very helpful over all these years. They have adapted the software to read custom data formats as well as provided application-specific advice on the use of some of the advanced features, such as the motifs analysis. Whenever any issues were found, Digital Surf has always responded quickly and always fixed the problem.

Mountains® software is an exceptional tool for the analysis of surface characteristics on archaeological artifacts. I use this software for the quantification of wear traces on stone tools, allowing us to identify and improve our knowledge of prehistoric human activities. The software is user-friendly and Digital Surf has excellent customer support, making Mountains® a fundamental tool for my research.
