Resources for Rock Slopes

The analysis of rock slopes was central to the founding of Rocscience over 20 years ago. Today, we have ten software solutions to help with all aspects of rock slope analysis, from the statistical analysis of rockfalls and rock topples to limit equilibrium and finite element slope stability analysis and much more.

HoloLens: Rocscience in Augmented Reality

June 5, 2018

We’re always looking at ways to make the visualization capabilities of our software even better. So, we’re especially excited to share with you how we’re bringing the immersive qualities of Augmented Reality (AR) into our 3D modelling products through integration with Microsoft HoloLens, the leading headset in the AR market.
