Leveraging Its Leadership in Information Modeling, Bentley Advances GIS for 3D Cities by Releasing V8i (SELECTseries 1) Versions of Bentley Map, Bentley Descartes, Bentley Geospatial Server, and Bentley Geo Web Publisher
EXTON, Pa. – Bentley Systems, Incorporated, the leading company dedicated to providing comprehensive software solutions for the infrastructure that sustains our world, today announced breakthroughs in 3D geospatial information systems (GIS) software to support the design and operation of intelligent cities. Intelligent cities, and the intelligent infrastructure they incorporate, take full advantage of information modeling best practices. As a result, they are able to provide better performance with respect to safety, energy, lifecycle costing, and operational efficiency. Bentley’s intra-operable portfolio of software features lifecycle support across all classes of intelligent infrastructure, including land management, power generation and energy delivery, water and wastewater networks, roads, bridges, rail, communications networks, and buildings. The just-released V8i(SELECTseries 1) versions of Bentley Map, Bentley Descartes, Bentley Geospatial Server, and Bentley Geo Web Publisher further extend this portfolio to include new 3D City GIS capabilities.
Commenting on Bentley’s new software, Richard Zambuni, Bentley global marketing director, said, “All around the world, city governments are looking for ways to improve the sustainability of their intelligent city infrastructure to deliver a better quality of life to their citizens. Bentley’s newly released 3D City GIS products enable them to adopt information modeling best practices that enhance their ability to perform urban planning, noise simulation, shadow analysis, natural disaster mitigation, public relationship management, and 3D analysis and design.
