If you’re a Civil 3D user being asked to provide data to your geographic information system (GIS) department, if you are being asked to use GIS data as background data for your designs, or if you think GIS is a four-letter word—this class will answer this all-too-common question: “Why should I care about GIS?” You’ll learn to import GIS data not only as AutoCAD objects, but also directly as Civil 3D objects, like Surfaces and Pipe Networks that use the existing database information. We’ll also explore the new ArcGIS Connector to access ArcGIS Online data in real time. Once that data is in Civil 3D we’ll explore ways to use it with labeling tools and other display techniques. This popular class has won the award for Best Hands-on Lab at Autodesk University. Don’t miss your chance to learn how the GIS tools in Civil 3D can make you more productive by automating common everyday tasks.
