OpenRoads Designer: The InRoads SS2 DTM vs OpenRoads Designer Terrain - Hands-on Intermediate/Advanced - Mark Ditko

InRoads SS2 has its “DTM”, OpenRoads Designer has its “Terrain”. What’s that all about? What’s changed? Has anything stayed the same? Unfortunately it’s not business as usual once you make the move off of InRoads SS2. This session will be focusing on the new OpenRoads Designer terrain model and will compare and contrast it to the InRoads SS2 DTM. Beyond that you will learn what this new Terrain model is all about, and will likely find it both baffling and intriguing at the same time. The new civil world is at our doorstep, and unless you’re getting ready to retire soon, you’re going to eventually need to understand this stuff, so get prepared. There probably won’t be any formal hands-on exercises, but there will be some sample files that can be examined to highlight the material covered in the class. Ideal for intermediate level users who have been working with DTMs using InRoads or Power InRoads V8i, SS2.
