An overview of the AutoCAD Map 3D tools that are built into AutoCAD Civil 3D. This was a specialized presentation, so the slide background was scrubbed out and a standard design used in its place.

  3. 3. Overview of Map Tools
  4. 4. The Map 3D tools in Civil 3D provide direct access to design, GIS, and asset data, enabling better planning, design, and management of infrastructure projects. o Access a broad variety of data o Improve planning and decision making o Better utilize CAD-trained workforce
  5. 5. Enhanced geometry editing and cleanup tools •Drawing Clean up •Rubbersheeting Tools for managing data Tools for aggregating and working with disparate data sets Powerful Analysis Tools
  6. 6. Enhanced geometry editing and cleanup tools Tools for managing data •Object Data •Working with external data sets •Creating and working with object classes Tools for aggregating and working with disparate data sets Powerful Analysis Tools
  7. 7. Enhanced geometry editing and cleanup tools Tools for managing data Tools for aggregating and working with disparate data sets •Attach drawings to manage large data sets and multi-user workflows •The capability to query information from other drawings •Import and export of many different data formats •Ability to work directly with live data and rasters Powerful Analysis Tools

  21. 21. Insert Ribbon and Import Panel
  22. 22. Features and FDO Connectors
  23. 23. Feature Data Objects
  24. 24. Taking Advantage of Map‟s Analysis Tools
  25. 25. AutoCAD Map provides a geospatial environment that is a hybrid of drawing features and feature sources from Feature Data Object connections.  Both may be used for analysis  AutoCAD objects require a topological relationship  FDO feature layers can be analyzed natively without converting
  26. 26. Three types of topology  Point or Node  Line or Network o Knows the nodes at each end. Nodes know which lines are connected.  Polygon o Knows the lines, and so the points, that bound it. Lines are aware of right and left polygons
  27. 27.  Each component of a network topology has a length, resistance, and direction  Network topology components, or links, are connected by nodes.  In order for drawing geometry to be used to define a network topology, the links must meet cleanly at the nodes, with no gaps or overlaps  “clean”
  28. 28. Key Points  Topologies are stored within a drawing as object data  Topologies must be loaded to be used  Network topologies contain information about length, direction, and resistance
  29. 29.  Shortest path  Best Route  Flood Trace
  30. 30.  The geometry used to define polygon topology must be extremely clean, with no gaps, overlaps, duplicates, or crossings. The cleanup tools in Map 3D are designed to ensure this  Polygons store their topological information in centroids. You can choose to have AutoCAD Map 3D create centroids, or use preexisting objects
  31. 31. • Intersect • Erase • Union • Clip • Identity • Paste
