IntelliCAD used by MicroSurvey in Mapping, Accident Reconstruction, Forensics, Civil, and Survey


MicroSurvey Software Inc. — member of the ITC — delivers its many IntelliCAD-based applications to land surveyors, civil engineers, seismic surveyors, mapping professionals, police officers, and accident reconstruction specialists. There are many different CAD development platforms available, but year after year MicroSurvey chooses IntelliCAD because it is the only open source, non-profit, cooperative CAD development platform.

IntelliCAD Co-op is the foundation for our civil, survey and forensic CAD applications. IntelliCAD provides a familiar CAD interface for our users and familiar development APIs for our developers. In addition to the standard APIs, IntelliCAD Co-op provides complete source access at the core level that has enabled new solutions we could not create on any other CAD platform. – Jason Poitras, General Manager MicroSurvey, ITC Secretary
