Description: AutoCAD® Civil 3D® Survey operates as a separate data environment within Civil 3D, with its own separate project management and setup. This class explores in detail the organization, setup and management of the Civil 3D Survey project, including best practices for its organization and use. Critical settings within the project are reviewed, including settings related to units and coordinate systems. The class examines data import techniques for bringing field data into the project, including imports from fieldbook files, LandXML and coordinate data, and for making edits and corrections to field data already imported. The class also explores strategies for managing projects on both state plane and assumed coordinate systems, and translations and interactions between the two.

He has provided training to thousands of individuals nationwide, assisted numerous clients in implementing Civil software, CAD standards and practices, and provided project consulting to many clients in unusual or challenging project applications. His experience level covers a spectrum from wide-area network-based systems for large international clients to individual data collection and mapping stations for survey sole practitioners.
