With the ever increasing need for design and GIS professionals to share data, it is critical that GIS users understand and are able to make use of data created with Autodesk’s AutoCAD® or similar software. Using AutoCAD® Data in ArcGIS is a course created by eGIS Associates’ experienced instructors that explains the various CAD data formats and how to integrate them into standard ESRI data formats such as shapefiles and geodatabases. Class will include quizzes for each lesson, a final exam and a final project which will make use of the skills learned.
This course is designed for those familiar with ESRI’s ArcGIS Desktop software and that need to integrate drawing files created with CAD software such as AutoCAD, IntelliCAD, TurboCAD, or Civil 3D.
