Description

Description

If you’re an AutoCAD Civil 3D software user who’s being asked to provide data to your geographic information system (GIS) department, if you’re being asked to use GIS data as background data for your designs, or if you think GIS is a 4-letter word, this class will answer this all-too-common question: “Why should I care about GIS?” You will not only learn to import GIS data as AutoCAD software objects, but you’ll also learn to import GIS data directly as AutoCAD Civil 3D software objects like Surfaces and Pipe Networks that capitalize on the existing database information. The request to provide design data to GIS departments is becoming more common every day. This class will explore the details of why just sending them a drawing is often not enough. We will explore ways to export AutoCAD Civil 3D software objects to GIS formats that your GIS department can use easily and consistently. Finally, you will learn about other GIS tools in AutoCAD Civil 3D software that can make every AutoCAD Civil 3D software user more productive by automating common everyday tasks.
