Mountains® can be used with almost all surface measuring instruments and microscopes. It is compatible with more than 170 file formats covering various data types (profile, surface, image, multilayers, force curve, hypercube, etc.) Should an instrument format be missing from this list, do not hesitate to contact us as it might be already developed or we can develop it for you (under some conditions).
