Autodesk Inc. releases Autodesk Topobase 2007
November 1, 2006
Autodesk Inc. released Autodesk Topobase 2007, an infrastructure design and management solution. Built on Autodesk Map 3D and Autodesk MapGuide Enterprise software, Autodesk Topobase 2007 addresses the challenges faced by organizations that collaborate on infrastructure projects, such as water or wastewater networks, by enabling teams to share spatial information across departments. Topobase provides customers with a more integrated view of all of their enterprise data by integrating islands of CAD, asset, GIS and customer information from both paper and electronic sources into a centralized infrastructure spatial information database. This central database enables collaboration, improves data quality and decreases redundancy of work steps. Topobase also allows users to leverage infrastructure project data from design and construction phases through ongoing infrastructure management. Oracle Spatial 10g Release 2 software is integrated into Topobase to help organizations manage spatial information in an open environment that can be integrated with existing enterprise and GIS systems.
