Discover how to easily move data between AutoCAD and GIS systems – while maintaining full control over CAD annotation and GIS attributes – using FME. See also how you can load data into Map 3D and style to your desire, or take data from Civil 3D and load into other applications such as Esri Geodatabase. Plus, you'll get a sneak peek at FME 2014's upcoming support for Autodesk Revit.

  • Thanks for the question, Abdul. We have several resources on CAD/GIS which may be of interest in helping you out. A few months ago, we did a 1 hour webinar dedicated to AutoCAD. You can find the video here: http://www.safe.com/webinar/how-to-overcome-7-top-autocad-road-blocks/. As well, you may want to check out our eBook called The Ultimate GUide to CAD & GIS Integration, which you can find here: http://fme.safe.com/cad-gis-ebook. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch with our support team here for some more detailed assistance for your scenario: http://fmepedia.safe.com/knowledgeSubmitCase

    • 7. What is FME? FME transforms data to use and share. Convert data Transform data Share data Integrate data Validate data And more #fmewebinar
    • 8. Poll: How long have you been using FME? #fmewebinar
    • 9. New to FME?  Visit our Getting Started Page: www.safe.com/fme/getting-started  Attend a weekly FME Overview webinar: safe.com/WeeklyIntro #fmewebinar
    • 10. CAD vs GIS: Different Perspectives CAD users have a drawing perspective:  Layers & levels  Styles & Symbology  Dimensions & Labels GIS users have a feature perspective:  Attributes and geometry  Data structure, model  Relational tables, domains  Location  Connectivity and proximity  Analysis
    • 11. FME Approach: CAD to GIS  Preserve labels and attribution from text, blocks or dimensions  Interpret layers, styles or symbols as attributes (e.g. road type, pipe diameter)  Improve geometry:  create connectivity – snapping  form polygons from lines  Combine geometry and attributes using proximity  e.g. point on area overlay, nearest neighbor: transfer label id to nearest line or polygon  Join to external database based on common id
    • 12. Poll: What are your biggest data exchange problems? #fmewebinar
    • 13. Demonstrations Live Demos  CAD to GIS  Data Transformation  GIS to CAD  Revit to GIS
    • 14. Demonstrations Live Demos  CAD to GIS  Data Transformation  GIS to CAD  Revit to GIS
    • 15. FME Approach: GIS to CAD Create AutoCAD blocks based on attribute values Preserve attributes as object data or tags Translate annotation Schema transformation to conform to CAD standards Geometry transformation and filtering to match CAD requirements (layers etc)  Ensure essential CAD information is preserved in GIS structures (GIS <-> CAD)     
