Our mission

For over 25 years, we have been providing the global industrial and scientific community with surface imaging and metrology software solutions.

Mountains® software helps people visualize, analyze and report on data obtained with all kinds of profilometers and microscopes.

Application areas include: aerospace, archaeology, automotive, materials science, MEMS, renewable energy, semiconductors etc.

Who we are

It all started back in 1989, with two French engineers who came together to create Digital Surf.

The company initially specialized in manufacturing 3D non-contact laser profilometers. In 1996, Mountains® technology, a new software platform, was born. In 2008, the company fully refocused on analysis software.

Today, Digital Surf brings together over 40 team members worldwide and, alongside many leading instrument manufacturers, is committed to bringing innovative data imaging and analysis tools to engineers, scientists and metrologists the world over.
