Prague, Czech Republic - BE Conference Europe - 12 June 2006 - At this inaugural BE Conference in Europe, Bentley Systems, Incorporated today announced that it has acquired the map publishing and finishing products, including CADscript and MAPscript, from Corporate Montage Pty. Ltd. of Perth, Australia.
Commenting on the acquisition, Styli Camateros, vice president, Bentley Geospatial, said, "Most maps and infrastructure designs are printed at some point, and the ability to produce high-quality printed output is vital. With CADscript and MAPscript, our users will be unconstrained and can express their work through visually creative and often stunning electronic or printed representations."
Added Fred Holthaus, assistant cartography manager at the Kansas Department of Transportation (DOT), "The presentation capabilities in CADscript have enabled us to greatly enhance the appearance of our project deliverables. We are elated with the news that these products will be integrated into the Bentley portfolio."
Among the many users of CADscript and MAPscript around the world are the national survey organizations of Great Britain, Australia, and Hong Kong; the land information departments of Western Australia, Queensland, Victoria, New Zealand, and Hong Kong; and the Connecticut DOT, Kansas DOT, Pennsylvania DOT, and Louisiana Department of Transportation & Development. CADscript is also used by municipalities, forestry authorities, mapping organizations, mineral extraction companies, oil companies, military mapping organizations, surveying companies, and engineering companies.
