Autodesk Delivers Total Solution for Civil Engineering and Surveying 07.25.2003

Autodesk Civil Series 2004 provides infrastructure design solution for projects of all types and sizes.

Autodesk Inc. shipped the latest version of Autodesk Civil Series 2004-a key component of the company's evolving infrastructure lifecycle management (ILM) solution of creation and collaboration offerings. This new ILM design solution offering enables civil engineering and surveying professionals to design, communicate, and visualize any type of civil project, while maintaining data integrity, and meeting drafting and design standards. Autodesk Civil Series also helps professional surveyors and civil engineers integrate and share their data with GIS professionals.

Autodesk Civil Series 2004- comprising Autodesk Land Desktop 2004, Autodesk Civil Design, Autodesk Survey, Autodesk Envision 8, and Autodesk Raster Design 2004 software -is the ideal choice for professionals who need to communicate survey data to and from the field, incorporate raster imagery such as aerial photos and scanned drawings, and design projects ranging from subdivisions to roads. As part of its ILM solution, customers can also take advantage of Autodesk's third-party applications and Autodesk Professional Services resulting in a quick implementation and deployment and a rapid return on investment (ROI).

Design professionals like the fact that Autodesk solutions streamline data flow between disciplines, inspiring them to reach to new levels of efficiency and productivity on every project. According to Mike Carris, a design systems specialist at Timmons Group, "From initial field surveys to design to finish, Autodesk helps us fit each piece of the puzzle perfectly and maximize our value to our clients."

"Unlike anything else available in the industry, Autodesk Civil Series 2004 provides the power and flexibility for use on a broad range of engineering and construction projects, and can be used by multiple land-use professionals, including those in GIS," said Chris Bradshaw, vice president of the Autodesk Infrastructure Solutions Division.

New Functionality for Civil Series 2004

  • Create design data more quickly, share design data more easily, and manage software more efficiently, locally and over networks.
  • Import/Export, drawing cleanup, topology, drawing classification, updated coordinate systems, and additional COGO functionality.
