Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Understand the business process and benefits of street-level, mobile reality capture at the scale of the municipality
  • Understand how photorealistic street-level data and colorized LIDAR can work together to provide a low-cost source of design measurement and visualization data
  • Learn the principles of working with AutoCAD Civil 3D to integrate these tools into the design process, including tips on application development
  • Learn how InfraWorks can access this data for even stronger visualization and native 3D design

Description

Description

Ever wish you could visualize real-world data without leaving the comfort of your own office? Sound too wonderful to be true? Well, it isn't. Sending crews into the field to measure and collect information about assets is time consuming and costly. But when you have street-level spherical imagery and colorized LIDAR (light detection and ranging) data at hand, you have the freedom to quickly, accurately, and cost-effectively create photorealistic 3D models for planning, design, emergency and disaster management, regulatory compliance, and asset management. We'll explore the collection process and business implications for street-level reality capture and examine 2 alternatives, such as Google Street View and CycloMedia. We'll also discuss practical workflows for municipal governments using this data, including design and visualization, with a focus on water asset management and pavement surface markings. Finally, we'll describe how to effectively integrate these data sources with AutoCAD Civil 3D software and InfraWorks software.

Target Audience

Target Audience

CAD Managers who want to radically change the way they collect model information. Municipal operations managers who want to improve responsiveness and data collection costs. Civil infrastructure planners and designers who want to improve design quality while reducing costs. Emergency response professionals who want to cost-effectively perform damage assessment. CAD and Forge application developers who want to learn techniques for integrating third-party 3D models with Autodesk products.
