Advanced Survey Functionality in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2017 and InfraWorks 360
Collapse Expand


Survey data is an important part of every infrastructure project. From field collection and remote sensing to establish the project’s existing-conditions base plan, all the way through to settings out of the designed features and the automated grading of the finished surfaces. In this class, we will take a deep dive into the new and existing survey features and functionality in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2017 software. We will cover traditional, global navigation satellite system (GNSS), scanned, photographed, and remote-sensing data types, and we’ll see how they’re added and used in both AutoCAD Civil 3D software and InfraWorks 360 software. Then we will dive deeper into open and closed loop adjustments, “on the fly” local to assumed coordinate-system transformations, grid-to-ground considerations, extreme description key coding, extended data on points and figures, and Land XML-based survey systems. And finally, to keep up with the latest trends, we will explore the power of photo-to-point-cloud tools, and see how settings out information works in the BIM 360 mobile applications. This session features AutoCAD Civil 3D, BIM 360 Layout, and InfraWorks 360. AIA Approved
