To run the 64-bit TerraScan, you must have the following:

  • Quad-core processor or better, good processor frequency (See threading in TerraScan, etc.)
  • 8 GB RAM minimum, 16 GB RAM or more recommended
  • 1024*768 resolution display or better
  • SSD hard disc or other storage device with fast access speed is recommended
  • Windows x64 version 7 or later

See the GeoCue recommended hardware for Client machines for minimum production processing machine specifications.

To run the 32-bit TerraScan, you must have the following:

  • Pentium or higher processor
  • 512 MB RAM or better (at least 2048 MB recommended for production work)
  • 1024*768 resolution display or better
  • Windows 8, 7, Vista, XP, or 2000 (64-bit version recommended)

Installation of TerraScan requires about 2 MB of free hard disk space.

MicroStation Compatibility:

TerraScan is built on top of MicroStation. You must have a computer system capable of running this CAD software. Terrasolid products are MicroStation based packages (MDL’s) and will run on either the newer 64-bit MicroStation CONNECT Edition ( or later), OpenCities Map PowerView CONNECT Edition ( or later), MicroStation PowerDraft CONNECT Edition ( or later), and Bentley OpenRoads Designer CONNECT edition ( or later) or older 32-bit MicroStation v08.05.xxx (2004 Edition: 08.05.xxx), MicroStation v8i ( or later), Bentley PowerCivil v8i (country versions and, Bentley Map v8i and Bentley Map PowerView v8i (,, The licenses are the same for all versions of MicroStation, but the installation packages are different between the v8, v8i, and CONNECT Edition packages. The latest update for any of the 64-bit MicroStation, Map PowerView, PowerDraft, or OpenRoads Designer CONNECT Editions are recommended as the new tools and feature enhancements are only in the CONNECT edition packages. Map PowerView is typically the cheapest of the compatible 64-bit Bentley products.”
