Transformations, assumed coordinates, local coordinates, custom projections, extended point attributes, geodetic scale factors, convergence angles, high accuracy GIS, DESC key codes, GPS collection, scanner collection, field to finish automation, corridor stakeout�If any of this makes sense to you, then this is the lab to attend. We do a hands-on deep dive to explore each of these topics and you are sure to walk away amazed with the surveying and data positioning powers in Infrastructure Design Suite that you can use to your full advantage.
- Transform survey points and figures across local and assumed coordinate systems
- Prepare accurate plans in both grid and ground measure, and identify critical measurement errors on extra-long projects
- Add extra attribute information to points and create automatic offset stakeout points on your corridors designs
- Automate survey reduction with field to finish best practices
Lucy Kuhns is an experienced civil engineer, mechanical engineer, and land surveyor with expertise in design and build for infrastructure. She first joined Autodesk, Inc., in 2006 as a civil technical specialist, and is now an Autodesk premium support technical specialist working with enterprise customers to guide adoption and develop solutions for infrastructure-based projects and processes related to Building Information Modeling (BIM) and virtual design and construction. Kuhns’s career began as a mechanical engineer working on helicopters for Hughes Aircraft Company, off-road vehicles for Honda Motor Company, and bi-modal rail equipment for a startup in which she was a principal. Later she turned her focus to civil engineering and land surveying and was a principal in a professional practice in New Mexico, Arizona, and Colorado. Believing that technology would set her company above the rest, she was an early adopter of CAD, GPS, high-accuracy geographic information system (GIS), and automation techniques both in the office and in the field, and Autodesk software was an important key to that success.
