A Range of CAD-GIS Integration Scenarios

  1. 1. A Range of CAD/GIS Integration Scenarios<br />Michael Schlosser, Autodesk<br />
  2. 2. The CAD/GIS Link<br />CAD and GIS are linked by the vary infrastructure that they portray and analyze<br />
  3. 3. The old way of integrating CAD & GIS<br />Import<br />Data<br />Conversion<br />Export<br />
  4. 4. CAD/GIS Integration<br />It’s not about CAD or GIS; It’s about both!<br />GIS?<br />Engineering?<br />ENGIS<br />
  5. 5. Why Engineering GIS?<br /><ul><li>Decreased redundancy
  6. 6. Reduced re-work
  7. 7. Reduced errors
  8. 8. Retained accuracy, precision & integrity
  9. 9. Increased usability/value
  10. 10. Improved efficiency
  11. 11. Increased competitiveness
  12. 12. Increased collaboration
  13. 13. Increased flexibility for design, planning and “what if”</li></ul>…and more<br />
  14. 14. Five Principles of Engineering GIS<br /><ul><li>Data passes through a lifecycle
  15. 15. Data is accessed natively
  16. 16. Design tools for data creation & maintenance
  17. 17. Geospatial tools for mapping & spatial analysis.
  18. 18. Design data is accurately rendered</li></li></ul><li>Construct<br />Draft<br />Construct<br />Operate<br />Draft<br />Operate<br />Design<br />Plan<br />Design<br />Plan<br />Map<br />Analyze<br />Map<br />Analyze<br />Survey<br />Survey<br />Principles of Engineering GIS<br />Data passes through a lifecycle<br />Engineering<br />GIS<br />
  19. 19. Principles of Engineering GIS<br />Data is accessed natively<br />AutoCAD DWG<br />Oracle<br />Raster<br />SQL Server<br /> ESRI SHP<br />SDF<br />Avoid<br /><ul><li>Import/export
  20. 20. Data Redundancy
  21. 21. File Conversion</li></li></ul><li>Principles of Engineering GIS<br />Design tools for data creation & maintenance<br />Survey Data <br />Field to Finish<br />Land Development<br />Intersection Modeling<br />Rules Based Geometry<br />
  22. 22. Principles of Engineering GIS<br />Geospatial tools for mapping & spatial analysis<br />Queries<br />Thematic Mapping<br />Polygon Overlay<br />Network Analysis<br />Shadow Studies<br />Slope & Aspect<br />Elevation<br />Overlay road network with flood zones to determine length of impacted roads and mitigation needs<br />
  23. 23. Principles of Engineering GIS<br />Design data is accurately rendered<br />Validate<br />Communicate<br />Visualize<br />Experience it Before it’s Real<br />
  24. 24. Engineering GIS applies…<br /><ul><li>Across Tools
  25. 25. Across Workflows
  26. 26. Across Locations</li></li></ul><li>Engineering GIS - Across Tools<br />Challenge<br /><ul><li>Integrate ArcSDE data and AutoCAD designs with minimal impact on design productivity </li></ul>Solution<br /><ul><li>Implemented an Engineering GIS approach based on AutoCAD Map 3D with open source Feature Data Object (FDO) technology</li></ul>Results<br /><ul><li>Complete tasks 16 times faster
  27. 27. Avoid data import/export, conversion
  28. 28. Data is more secure, accurate and precise</li></ul>York Region<br />Ontario<br />Canada<br />
  29. 29. Engineering GIS – Across Workflows<br />Base Map Preparation<br />Base Map Preparation<br />Connect to data natively<br />Design<br />Design<br />Leverage existing design and geospatial tools<br />Update with <br />as-tendered data and versioning <br />Construction<br />Construction<br />Accurately rendered designs<br />Records Management<br />Records Management<br />Update with <br />as-built data<br />
  30. 30. Engineering GIS – Across Workflows<br />Challenge<br /><ul><li>Deal with 5 year as-built backlog</li></ul>Solution<br /><ul><li>Implement First As-Tendered then As-Built method to update corporate database using Engineering GIS based on AutoCAD Map 3D</li></ul>Results<br /><ul><li>Virtually eliminated searches for paper as-builts
  31. 31. Improved efficiency of searches by 20%
  32. 32. Improved accuracy of infrastructure inventory on new construction by up to 15%
  33. 33. Spinoff benefits: improved accuracy in regulatory reporting, decision making and public safety</li></ul>City of Saskatoon<br />Saskatchewan<br />Canada<br />
  34. 34. Engineering GIS – Across Locations<br /><ul><li>In the field
  35. 35. At the office desktop
  36. 36. Via the Internet</li></li></ul><li>Summary<br />Planning (GIS)<br />CAD/GIS integration embraces Engineering GIS principles:<br /><ul><li>Data passes through a lifecycle
  37. 37. Data is accessed natively
  38. 38. Design tools for data creation & maintenance
  39. 39. Geospatial tools for mapping & spatial analysis.
  40. 40. Design data is accurately rendered</li></ul>Design (CAD)<br />
