We have tested several software packages over the last few years to allow us to extract data for the various types of survey applications we have been using our LiDAR systems on and have found that TopoDot is hands down the most comprehensive and user friendly package. Being in a multi-discipline survey firm that works with a multitude of software suites, I can say without a doubt that the training, support and tool updates that the team at Certainty 3D provides for their customers are without equal.
The new topographic projection tool alone saved us hundreds of man hours on a recent project by allowing us to adjust a finalized cad drawing when we found a shift in the project control was needed. If not for this tool we would have needed to completely re-draft the area of change, instead we were able to make the revisions in a matter of days instead of weeks.

TopoDOT is very useable, complete and state of the art. With the comprehensive, extensive, expert training, workflow model, and support of Certainty 3D we were productive with their software from day one and continue to discover new techniques, making our process more productive each day. We have never been more satisfied with any software developer as we are with C3D. Their knowledge of 3D laser scanning operations and point cloud management far exceeds any other we've encountered.

To all at Certainty 3D, thanks for the note, your work and “fun” allow me to do things with surveying and mapping data I never imagined when starting out many years ago. It’s a great thing to be able to continue a learning process throughout a 30+ year survey career. I thank you all for your commitment to the TopoDOT community! Your always there to answer questions and listen to new ideas. All the best to all of you at Certainty 3D, I look forward to staying on the path with you and the community.

At Maser, we are always searching for a better way to extract features from LiDAR data. We have found that TopoDOT is leading the way in easy to use and flexible tools that work inside MicroStation. The C3D team has shown a commitment to our workflows and provided more than ample support for our project teams that are working in the fast-paced world of design-build.
—Paul DiGiacobbe, P.E.
The C3D Team has truly taken advantage of new technologies. The tools you provide allow us to take advantage of the synergy of high precision LiDAR models & High Res. Imagery. I can say "This is the right way to do it". The support group is honestly the most responsive & energetic group. Either answering a technical question or a new idea, you can count on C3D to listen and put together an innovative and cost effective solution.
TopoDOT provides us with the missing link in converting 3D Laser Scanning data into CAD deliverables. The team of Certainty 3D have managed to outperform all the other major players in the market.
The thing I love most (besides the software) is the Customer/Client Support each and every member of Certainty 3D offers. You guys are the best.
