If you took Part 1 of this class (today or during a previous year at Autodesk University) and you’re ready to learn even more, this class takes the next step as we look at the geographic information system (GIS) capability in AutoCAD Civil 3D software and how it can benefit civil engineers and surveyors. GIS data can be created directly in AutoCAD Civil 3D or imported from other programs. Once you have access to that data, the real fun begins. This class will explore ways to analyze, display, and use this information to answer questions and automate common tasks. 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 an adequate way to satisfy that request. You’ll learn ways to export AutoCAD Civil 3D objects to GIS formats that can be used easily and consistently by your GIS department.
