GIS interoperability and collaboration

Publish GIS maps on-line and share GIS data with more stakeholders. AutoCAD® Map 3D software helps you to get the right information to the right person, at the right time and in the right format—paper, desktop, web, or mobile.

    Publishing and interoperability

  • Take industry model data off-line

    With off-line editing and synchronisation, users can check out industry model data to work locally in the field or with other software. Extract data in queued edit mode and bring it into the design process using AutoCAD Utility Design software (US site), or share it with workers in the field who use Infrastructure Map Server (US site) software. When your work is complete, sync and merge the data back into the industry model.

  • Desktop to web to A360

    Store AutoCAD software drawings, project files and map drawing files in an easy-to-access online workspace using A360 (US site). View and edit your designs online or on your mobile device and share and collaborate easily with others. The AutoCAD WS (US site) web and mobile application for AutoCAD enables you to view, edit and share DWG drawings and GIS maps online using A360.

  • Publish directly to the web

    Distribute your geospatial data, designs and GIS maps online in ways that meet your organisation's needs. Publish to the Internet using the Infrastructure Map Server application (US site). Or distribute drawings as individual georeferenced DWF files, multi-sheet DWF map books, or paper plots. Also, you can publish a single DWG or multiple drawing files into a single map definition.

  • Interoperate with AutoCAD and GIS software

    Read, write and convert data between widely used formats. Widely used formats include:

  • Data exchange with 3D planning/design tools

    Use the same data for conceptual modelling in 3D environments to make intelligent, model-based designs for civil and utility distribution projects. Share data more easily with Infraworks (US site), AutoCAD Civil 3D and AutoCAD Utility Design (US site) software.

  • Dynamic legends, north arrows and scale bars

    Improve public view documents, such as maps and exhibits, with north arrows, scale bars, dynamic legends and more viewports within the exhibit.

  • Grids, graticules and map books

    Create and publish maps based on US National Grid (USNG) standards, latitude and longitude grids and more criteria.
