OF TERRACE MINING
(Advanced Land Editor) is a powerful software to help civil
design. It is developed from 2000 and now at its revision 4.
program is used by engineers and geologists who design roads,
earth-moving, open mining, garbage dumps, pools, pits, basins,
earth dams, land
rehabilitation, civil general design and so on.
ALE engine works by a 3D ground Modeler.
Simple buildings are
added both as a reference and visual evaluation of the general
suggest to download the working demo to
evaluate in a few minutes how ALE is simple, accurate, cost
The accuracy of the excavation and filling volumes
calculation may be cross checked because is performed by two
different methods (cross sections and prism). Resolution of the
DTM (digital terrain model) is printed on request.
performed project may be easily inspected, evaluated and changed
by a professional user. All the outputs are automatically updated
and shown in real time . A large effort has been performed to
allow users to evaluate and control at any moment the status of

straight segments polylines) with Autocad (a trademark of
Autodesk) through a simplified dxf 12 format.
