I'm a surveyor who is very new to the GIS world. We are using Mobile Map to QC storm structure data. This is working great.
Is there a Bentley application that can be used for field collection using RTK gps? We would like to collect a large amount of storm drainage data using RTK and provide an ESRI database as a deliverable.
Is that possible?
The ESRI software can produce several file formats. If you want graphics plus attribution, ask them to Export to Shapefile. Both Bentley Map and MicroStation can open/reference/import Shapefiles. When you import Shapefiles into Bentley Map, the software will utilize the attributes in standard GIS fashion. And you're all set to share with your client since the file format is DGN.
The PDF file in this article illustrates those options: Bentley Map V8i menu guide
