Concept Station

This software will provide an enhanced ability to estimate quantities and develop preliminary design concepts on projects that you want to take a little farther than normal. Some of the nice features are: the ability to easily download aerial photography and terrain for the project area, ability to import GIS data, ability to export alignments and profiles for use in GEOPAK as the starting point for design work and a visualization model is produced automatically.

Power GEOPAK - Introduction to Bentley Drainage

The Bentley Drainage application is a comprehensive system that allows for the designing and analyzing storm drain systems. The projects created in Drainage may contain multiple drainage networks with each compromised of any number of connected drainage areas, inlets, manholes, pipes, and ditches. The workflow for Drainage mirrors the conventional design process beginning with the design of the collection system (inlets, manholes, drainage areas) followed by the design of the conveyance system (subsurface pipes, channels).
