Description

Description

As a working Geospatial/CAD manager on a military installation, it is a juggling act to manage all aspects of the job. The U.S. Air Force 3E5X1 (Engineers) career field’s increasing requirement for Autodesk® training has changed the way we manage our CAD as-built and geospatial enterprise data. This class will cover a combination of how going back to basics streamlined the Nellis Air Force Base business process and limited IT support challenges. We will present an overview of our “how-to” approach in managing construction as-builts, surveying methods, and GIS using AutoCAD® Map 3D® and AutoCAD® Civil 3D® software as well as products from ESRI® and Trimble®.

Target Audience

Catherine Hall

Cathy Hall has been the Geospatial/CAD manager for 4 years at 99 CES, Nellis AFB. Cathy has over 10 years of combined work experience as an active duty military member and civilian in CAD, GIS, Surveying, and Project Management for MILCON. She currently holds degrees in A.S. Building Technology/Construction, B.S. Information Technology, and finishing her graduate certificate in Geospatial Intelligence. Cathy has been involved representing the Air Force in local seminars as a panelist. Cathy spoke last year at the GeoBase conference on the Nellis AFB’s implementation of the Shadow training program showcasing the interoperability of 3 software platform to manage CAD as-built and GIS data in SDE Enterprise Environment, process and workflow, what worked and didn’t work while keeping up with low manning and budget constraints. Sustainability of the business process is a step forward in preparation for the upcoming USAF Civil Engineer’s NextGen IT initiative and BIM implementation.
