Digital Surf

Developer of surface imaging & metrology software for profilers and microscopes since 1989

Digital Surf first started back in 1989 when two French engineers with a passion for image analysis came together to found Digital Surf.

It’s been a long way from Digital Surf’s humble beginnings. They started as a pioneering manufacturer of 3D scanning profilometers. Software however quickly became their key specialty. This is why, some years later, DS naturally decided to stop manufacturing measuring instruments and offer their leading analysis software to all manufacturers.

In 1996, the software moved from Macintosh (and MS-DOS) to Windows® and the Mountains® brand was launched. Mountains® was initially designed as surface analysis and metrology software exclusively for profilometers.

DS slowly started to branch out and in 2004 new features for Scanning Probe Microscopes & confocal microscopes made their debut. A few years later, the Mountains® range extended again to bring color and topography to Scanning Electron Microscopes.

Today, Mountains® software has become the industry standard in surface & image analysis for engineers, scientists and researchers around the globe. It is composed of five product families with specialized solutions for profilometry, electron microscopy, scanning probe microscopy, spectroscopy as well as a multi-instrument solution for data confluence.
