PPD Software – Professional Parcours Design

General Information

The software is available with us. The latest version is 2019. Let us advise you.

A computer can neither compose a successful music hit by itself, nor can a computer design a course plan by pressing one of its buttons. In our sport ideas, feelings and experiences of course designers produce successful courses.

With our course planning software „PPD“ the laptop helps in no time to design a course. A few mouse clicks and you have a new arena in matching scale. Different types of jumps, the track, distances between obstacles, dimensions and material – all appears in seconds on the screen and can be edited. „PPD“ even measures the length of a course.

Everything can be printed in a handy A4-format, and thus working sketches for the crew, course plans for judges, press and TV are available with one click. Archived in the computer, they help with future planning.

PPD – Professional Parcours Design is unique worldwide and is used by most international course designers.
