AutoCAD Map 3D



AutoCAD Map 3D software provides access to GIS and mapping data to support planning, design, and data management. Intelligent models and CAD tools help you to apply regional and discipline-specific standards. Integration of GIS data with your organization helps to improve quality, productivity, and asset management.

AutoCAD Map 3D Features

GIS analysis and planning tools

Analysis tools
GIS analysis and planning tools help you answer questions and make better decisions about your data.

Coordinate systems and geolocation (enhanced)
Commercial basemap and geolocation tools enable you to bring in aerial data, roads, and hybrid aerial-road maps.

Create coordinate systems
Search for or create coordinate systems using custom grid files, and use modern algorithms for transforming coordinate systems.

Create and edit symbols
Import common public-domain symbols into a mapping environment and edit them to meet specific requirements.

Dynamic tooltips and links
Roll over a feature to display properties, such as tooltips and links.

Industry data modeling and management

Data management tools
Manage spatial data in almost any format and use out-of-the-box industry models available for both stand-alone and enterprise environments.

Access industry models in more formats
Access industry models in Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle systems.

Workflows and feature rules
Using the Microsoft Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), it is easier to automate repetitive tasks.

Convert data to intelligent industry models (enhanced)
Create and manage intelligent industry models by converting GIS and CAD data.

Configure linear referencing systems
Develop a linear referencing system (LRS) application, such as a rail or transportation module.

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

Publishing and interoperability

Take industry model data offline (enhanced)
With offline editing and synchronization, users can check out industry model data to work locally in the field or with other software.

Desktop to web to A360 (enhanced)
Store AutoCAD software drawings, project files, and map drawing files in an easy-to-access online workspace using A360.

Publish directly to the web
Distribute your geospatial data, designs, and GIS maps online in ways that meet your organization’s needs.

Interoperate with AutoCAD and GIS software
Read, write, and convert data between widely used formats.

Data exchange with 3D planning/design tools
Use the same data for conceptual modeling in 3D environments to make intelligent, model-based designs for civil and utility distribution projects.

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 U.S. National Grid (USNG) standards, latitude and longitude grids, and more criteria.

Topographical data access and editing

Topographical data directly from the source
Using open-source Feature Data Object (FDO) technology, AutoCAD Map 3D provides direct access to GIS data from many spatial and topographical data sources.

Data access and management (enhanced)
Enhanced Microsoft Excel spreadsheet capabilities enable you to join attribute and GIS data and edit the Excel data stored inside AutoCAD Map 3D.

Survey functionality
Rich survey tools enable you to easily import, compute, and manage field measurements and topographical data acquired from GPS and terrestrial sources.

Surfaces and point cloud tools
Create large-scale surface models from points, and contour data and create contours from surfaces.
