Using GIS Data and the Autodesk Connector for ArcGIS

Module overview

The focus of this module is GIS data. Many projects begin and end with the utilization of GIS data. In this module, we will explore the many options of using, editing and analyzing GIS data within Autodesk Civil 3D. Join us as we explore the new Autodesk Connector for ArcGIS, the planning and analysis tools that Civil 3D has to offer and then export Civil and AutoCAD data out to a GIS format.

This module takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. By the end of the module, you should be able to: 

  • Connect GIS data to your Civil 3D project using the ESRI Connector 
  • Utilize GIS data in your project 
  • Edit and analyze GIS data in Civil 3D 
  • Share GIS data from Civil 3D with others
