3D MAPPING SOFTWARE

Autodesk has 3D mapping software for civil engineers, surveyors, and construction professionals.

What is 3D mapping?

3D mapping (also called projection mapping or spatial augmented reality) is a technology used to project a 2D or 3D object onto a display surface through spatial mapping.  3D mapping is often used by advertisers and artists to add dimension, movement, and depth to previously static objects such as buildings or stages.

What is 3D mapping

3D mapping techniques

CAD and GIS

CAD AND GIS

Spatial data that is digitized or created in GIS can be converted to CAD data and vice versa which can then be manipulated in Autodesk products.

Drones for 3D mapping

DRONES AND UAVS

Utilize drones and UAVs to survey and create high-quality 3D models that can be mapped to objections for projection.

Photogrammetry

PHOTOGRAMMETRY

Turn photographs into detailed 3D maps, drawings, and models using photogrammetry for precise measurements.

How is 3D mapping software used?
