2D/3D Desktop GIS and Mapping Software

Create, maintain, analyze, and share your geospatial, engineering, and business information in a powerful, yet familiar MicroStation environment. Work confidently with engineering-quality GIS to produce quality maps and unify disparate 2D/3D data.
  • Eliminate disparate data and improve interoperability (Oracle Spatial, Esri File Geodatabase, Esri SHP files,
    Microsoft SQL Server Spatial, i-models, Bing Maps, and more).
  • Save time and eliminate rework with engineering-accurate object creation, editing, and mapping tools. 
  • Use a strong yet flexible application program interface (API) for developing custom GIS applications. 
  • Increase productivity and improve decision making by giving field personnel fast access from a tablet with the Bentley Map Mobile app.

Because every user has different needs and requirements, Bentley OpenCities Map is offered in various versions.



  • Capture existing context in 3D

    • ​Integrate engineering data, survey data, point clouds, and digital imagery to create and update highly accurate 3D city information models and databases. Automatically create 3D reality meshes of cities.
  • Conduct 2D and 3D spatial analysis

    • Analyze data with tools for buffering, overlays, thematic maps, and 3D clash detection. Perform shadow and solar analysis.
  • Develop custom GIS applications

    • Create your own custom GIS application, tailored to your needs. The software is designed with a remarkable degree of flexibility and has an extensive API supporting custom development using C/C++, C#, .NET and other modern programming languages. The kit includes extensive documentation and samples.
  • Incorporate data in native Esri formats

    • Improve interoperability by incorporating data in native Esri formats. Import, export, or reference Esri SHP files. Connect and perform direct transactions with File Geodatabase.
  • Incorporate geospatial data from spatial databases

    • View and import Web Feature Service (WFS) data directly. Access, update, and manage spatial data stored in Oracle Spatial, Microsoft SQL Server, and Esri File Geodatabase in a seamless and intuitive way.
  • Maintain 3D city models

    • ​Edit, maintain, and manage your 3D city model data including unstructured and structured data such as geospatial, architectural, and engineering designs, point clouds, and reality meshes. Seamlessly integrate with enterprise spatial databases such as Oracle Spatial and SQL Server Spatial.
  • Manage geospatial information

    • ​Overcome the challenge of managing, collaborating on, and sharing geospatial and related data in a federated environment by combining map-based interface with project, document, and workflow management capabilities. Navigate and retrieve content based on specific locations in a controlled and secure way.
  • Manage land information and records

    • ​Optimize your land information management with federated geospatial data management, open spatial databases, and 2D and 3D parcel management for land registration, information, and tax purposes.
  • Model geospatial objects

    • Create intelligent geospatial objects with advanced 2D and 3D design productivity innovations using interactive snapping tools. Use tools for dimensioning, annotation, raster display, printing, publishing, and much more.
  • Produce animations and renderings

    • Secure stakeholder buy-in by producing realistic movies and simulations from design, construction, and operational models. Choose from keyframe and time-based animation. Get the results you want, faster, using live on-screen animation previews and distributed network processing. Create lifelike visualizations and access online and delivered libraries of physically correct materials, lighting, and rich photorealistic content.
  • Produce cartographic maps

    • ​Author and publish high quality, accurate cartographic and thematic maps. Create multiple pages in map books with borders and populated fields, dynamic labeling and text placement, grid and graticule generation, drop shadows, halo effects, and high fidelity printing and publishing.

Bentley Map refers to the V8i product line.

OpenCities Map refers to the CONNECT Edition product line.

Question Answer
How can I upgrade from V8i to CONNECT Edition?


There are three possibilities to upgrade from V8i to CONNECT Edition:

1. If you own Bentley Map PowerView V8i or Bentley Map V8i or Bentley Map Enterprise V8i:

  • Then you can upgrade to CONNECT Edition at no cost.  The same license will work for both V8i and CONNECT Edition.


2. If you own MicroStation V8i and Bentley Map for MicroStation V8i you have two choices:

  • You can decide to exchange your Bentley Map for MicroStation V8i  license for a OpenCities Map CONNECT Edition license.  There is no cost for this license exchange however the price of SELECT will increase.
  • Or, you can decide to exchange both the MicroStation V8i and Bentley Map for MicroStation V8i licenses for one license of OpenCities Map Enterprise CONNECT Edition.  There is no cost for this exchange, however the price of SELECT will increase.


3. If you own MicroStation V8i and want to purchase Bentley Map for MicroStation V8i:

  • Bentley Map for MicroStation is no longer available.  For the price of Bentley Map for MicroStation V8i, the upgrade path is to exchange your MicroStation V8i license to a OpenCities Map Enterprise CONNECT Edition license.   


For pricing information, please contact your account manager.

Will OpenCities Map V8i for MicroStation work with MicroStation CONNECT Edition? No. The 32-bit architecture of Bentley’s V8i products is incompatible with MicroStation CONNECT Edition’s 64-bit architecture.
When can a OpenCities Map for MicroStation CONNECT Edition be expected? OpenCities Map will not be available as a layered product in the CONNECT Edition release. As with all CONNECT Edition products, OpenCities Map CONNECT will be a standalone product.
When will I have access to Bentley’s Cloud Services, that are integrated seamlessly with MicroStation CONNECT Edition? The latest version of Bentley Map, the V8i (SELECTseries 4) provides access to Bentley’s Cloud Services.
When was OpenCities Map CONNECT Edition released? The initial release of OpenCities Map CONNECT Edition was spring of 2018.
Can I install Map CONNECT Edition on the same machine that has Map V8i?

Yes, but be sure to install it in a different folder.

Where can I find information about expiring support for older versions of Bentley Map?

Please refer to Bentley Support Policy.

Where can I find more information on the changes to workspaces and configuration in the CONNECT Edition? 

There are a number of pages dedicated to the configuraton changes.  Please refer to the following links: 

What version of Map uses Subscription Entitlement Service (formerly CONNECT Licensing)?

Subscription Entitlement Service (formerly CONNECT Licensing) was introduced with OpenCities Map CONNECT Edition Update 2 (  Subscription Entitlement Service does not use activation keys. To enhance security, the licensing requires users become registered in User Management and then sign in with those credentials to access the application. Please refer to the following links: 

When I download OpenCities Map, I only get a small .exe file.  When I run the exe, it downloads installation files.  How can I keep those installation files so that I can distribute them to my users? 

To distribute installation files to your users, you’ll need to create a deployment image.  Please refer to the following article for further details:

My users don’t have an internet connection.  How can they install OpenCities Map products?

You’ll need to create a deployment image as described in the following article:

Are there any resources for a CAD Manager for help with migrating to CONNECT?

Yes, please refer to link in the CAD Managers Guide to CONNECT Edition .

I have third-party add-ons for Bentley Map V8i.  Will they work in OpenCities Map CONNECT Edition?

OpenCities Map CONNECT Edition is a 64-bit application. While the DGN file format has not changed, the following will need attention.

  • MDL and native code applications will need to be recompiled.
  • VBA applications may require some modification.
  • MicroStation BASIC macros will no longer function and will have to be rewritten in another supported language.

Note: If you are running third-party applications in Bentley Map V8i, then please contact the authors directly to ask if they have plans to port their application to OpenCities Map CONNECT Edition.
