Autodesk Inc. introduced Autodesk Civil 3D 2007 Extension for Google Earth--Technology Preview. This publishing utility is designed for civil engineers and surveyors who need to keep all constituents involved in a project, from the planning stages through public approval, apprised of the latest design information. Autodesk Civil 3D 2007 Extension for Google Earth--Technology Preview offers design professionals the ability to: publish data (such as points, parcels, alignments, corridor models, surfaces and hydraulic networks) to Google Earth through a wizard-driven interface; share data with extended teams through a .KML file that can be opened directly in Google Earth; enrich designs by adding layers of data, including buildings, transportation systems and more; provide project views from different vantage points; and enhance Civil 3D models by associating design points with lifelike 3D content (such as light poles, houses and cars along a street). The Autodesk Civil 3D 2007 Extension for Google Earth--Technology Preview is available for download free of charge at To run the utility, users must have Autodesk Civil 3D 2007 software installed as well as Google Earth. Autodesk's extension is compatible with the free version of Google Earth, as well as Google Earth Plus and Google Earth Pro. (Autodesk, San Rafael, Calif.)(Google Inc., Mountain View, Calif.)
