Bentley Descartes Fundamentals V8i  


This course will enable you to leverage the functionality found in Bentley Descartes and give you the skills required for your engineering, mapping and conversion projects that require the use of large images for creating hybrid maps, plan sheets and other image rich documents. Bentley Descartes is designed to serve the mapping and visualization needs of professionals in many industries. It is used worldwide across disciplines, including mapping, land management, surveying, energy exploration, civil and environmental engineering, plant design, and architectural design. Because it is tightly integrated with MicroStation, it can be customized to fit virtually any workflow where imaging automation is needed.


It is recommended that delegates have a working knowledge of one or more of the following:

  • Basic knowledge of Microsoft Windows functionality.
  • Working knowledge of MicroStation functionality, including element creation, modification and manipulation tools. 
  • A basic understanding of the Raster Manager would be useful but is not essential.
