GIS systems and spatial data management

AutoCAD® Map 3D software offers tools to convert data to intelligent models, ease spatial database management, define workflows and feature rules and create, share and analyse industry-specific models. Perform industry model creation more efficiently to analyse impact on infrastructure.

    Industry data modelling and management

  • Data management tools (enhanced)

    Manage spatial data in almost any format and use out-of-the-box industry models available for both standalone and enterprise environments. Create and modify your own data models more quickly and easily using powerful data modelling tools. Move and convert data from one data store to another. More easily manage the very large, job-enabled databases required by large owners and operators of infrastructure data.

  • Access industry models in more formats (enhanced)

    Access industry models in Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle systems. With the enhanced FDO provider, you can work with enterprise industry models on SQL Server as you would Oracle systems. Directly edit network models stored in ArcSDE 10.2, utilising additional support functionality.

  • Workflows and feature rules

    Using the Microsoft Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), it's easier to automate repetitive tasks. Build, save and share simple and complex workflows with a visual editor. Facilitate more accurate data updates by using custom feature rules and workflows for industry models.

  • Convert data to intelligent industry models (enhanced)

    Create and manage intelligent industry models by converting GIS and CAD data. Populate a new industry model from FDO data sources or DWG files and map feature classes and attributes. Then the data can be converted to a model and the database saved as a DWG/DWT file for use in future projects. Convert existing CAD and GIS, AutoCAD software data and other GIS datasets.

  • Configure linear referencing systems

    Develop a linear referencing system (LRS) application, such as a rail or transport module. Within your new industry model, define the LRS based on existing assets and line segments. Then include a prefix for your LRS, helping to specify the feature classes in your system. After you define new custom feature classes, configure the LRS by adding asset relationships. Then open and manage a road or railway LRS template.

  • Industry model analysis

    Use connectivity information built into the industry models to identify connected facilities or analyse the impact of actions on your infrastructure.
