Orlando, FL, May 1, 2012 — The Alabama Department of Transportation has purchased TopoDOT point cloud processing software from Certainty 3D, making it the seventh U.S. state transportation department to adopt the popular software program within the past year. Other state transportation departments using TopoDOT include Arkansas, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Virginia and Wisconsin. The software is also being used by the Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation department in Canada and by the Queensland Department of Transport in Australia.
“TopoDOT’s rapid adoption by transportation agencies is not unexpected,” said Ted Knaak, president of Certainty 3D. "As a MicroStation application offering a comprehensive tool suite for LiDAR system data processing, TopoDOT is uniquely well positioned within the civil infrastructure market. Given the tough economic times, our customers also appreciate TopoDOT’s low cost and free web based training programs.”
