does TopoDOT run on ContextCapture Editor from Bentley Systems?

    As long as ContextCapture Editor runs on the MicroStation platform (V8i or Connect), TopoDOT should work as well. Doing a quick search on the product, it appears that it runs on the Connect platform. We can get together and test it if you’d like.

OpenCities Map Connect or OpenCities Map Enterprise Connect are end of life as per Bentley….. Will TopoDOT work on Bentley OpenCities Map Ultimate?

    It should, as it runs on the Connect platform.

Hi! Does TopoDOT run on Bentley OpenSite Designer? Thanks.

    Hello Zoltán,

    I’ve gone ahead and installed OpenSite Designer and tested TopoDOT’s compatibility, and yes, it runs without issue. I’ve gone ahead and added the product compatibility to the table!
