Description

Description

How common is it that a company's geographic information system (GIS) department has all of this useful data but the civil department never uses it? The answer: it’s common. AutoCAD Civil 3D software comes with the full suite of AutoCAD Map 3D software tools, and it’s high time you learn how to use them. Many of the AutoCAD Map 3D tools are not just for GIS professionals, but also for civil designers and surveyors. AutoCAD Map 3D is the bridge between the GIS world and the CAD / Building Information Modeling (BIM) world, and the gap is getting smaller every day. Reducing design time and lowering costs are just 2 benefits from using GIS data that already exists—and that may exist in the GIS department on the other side of your cube wall. We’ll cover some of the core AutoCAD Map 3D tools, including Map Connect (FDO connection), ODBC, and Object Data linking, as well as fundamental map styling.
