Autodesk® Civil 3D Field To Finish Training Course
This course is for surveyors using Civil 3D who need to learn best practices for field data collection and the use of the automated tools in Civil 3D to create an existing condition plan.
Class length: 2 Days
- Course Content
The surveying tools in Civil 3D provide the surveyor and survey technicians the functionality necessary to process survey data and create drawings. Included with Civil 3D is AutoCAD Map 3D, a GIS data collection and visualization tool. Using Map 3D, surveyors can overlay layers of GIS and CAD data to create more complete base maps of existing conditions and gain a more accurate view of proposed designs in a real world context. This course is for surveyors using Civil 3D who need to learn best practices for field data collection and the use of the automated tools in Civil 3D to create an existing condition plan.
The Survey Field to Finish class will cover the following:
-Work with local experts in a simulated field environment to learn proper data collection techniques.
-Use data collection software to transfer field data from the survey instrument into the computer.
-Learn the Civil 3D interface and survey import workflow.
-Create a project survey database in Civil 3D to host field data.
-Import and evaluate data collected in the field.
-Create standards for survey data import.
-Create surfaces from field data.
-Use readily-available GIS data for survey and engineering projects.
-Develop a finished CAD product for ALTA / Plat development or for civil engineering hand-off.
Minimum 6 months AutoCAD experience or AutoCAD Fundamentals Part 1 and 2, as well as knowledge of basic land surveying techniques and terminology.
