How many times do we re-create and re-engineer design data? Wouldn't it be nice to work with Autodesk, Inc., design tools and directly use existing geographic information system (GIS) data to store and retrieve data regardless of data format? There is always a difference between the design-mode land GIS model that makes this process costly and inefficient. This class will demonstrate how you can configure and use the AcClassify GIS data utility to translate data (round-trip and on the fly) to and from your enterprise GIS. You will learn how to use the AcClassify data utility to define profiles that encapsulate the complexities of data model transformation, and you will see how AcClassify works with the current AutoCAD Utility Design software data exchange (DX) adaptor to create a smooth workflow. You will also see how to use AcClassify for many other dynamic transformations, including those between Autodesk design tools and the cloud.
