A Practical Guide to AutoCAD Map 3D 2013,Introduction. Congratulations on choosing this course to help you learn how to use AutoCAD Map 3D 2013 The term. practical is used in the title because this course focuses on what you need to effectively use AutoCAD Map. 3D 2013 and does not complicate your learning experience with unnecessary details of every feature in the. product Should you want to pursue aspects of features and functionality in greater detail than provided in this. course you are directed and guided to that information. Each lesson contains the concepts and principles of each feature to provide you with the background and. foundation of knowledge that you need to complete the lesson You then work through real world exercises to. reinforce your understanding and provide you with practice on common tasks that other professionals are. performing with AutoCAD Map 3D 2013 in the workplace every day. You can take the lessons in this course in whatever order is appropriate for your personal needs If you want. to concentrate on specific features the lesson for those features does not require that you complete prior. lessons With this course organization you can customize your own individual approach to learning AutoCAD. When you complete this course you will be armed with the background and knowledge to apply AutoCAD. Map 3D to your job tasks and become more effective and productive in your job. Course Objectives, The objectives of this course are performance based In other words once you have completed the course. you will be able to perform each objective listed If you are already familiar with AutoCAD Map 3D you will be. able to analyze your existing workflows and make changes to improve your performance based on the tools. and features that you learn and practice in this course. After completing this course you will be able to, Work with global coordinate systems in AutoCAD Map 3D. Create and edit mapping specific geometry, Work with attribute data in the form of Object Data and external database links. Apply Object Classification to your mapping system. Incorporate aerial photos and raster images into your mapping system. Import GIS data from other formats into AutoCAD Map 3D. Establish and manage a mapping system that uses high performance technology to access and work. with several formats of GIS data, Apply effective and impactful styles to your mapping data.
Establish and work within a system of related drawing based maps. Create manage and analyze topologies,Create sophisticated map books. Prerequisites, Before starting this course you should have a basic working knowledge of AutoCAD A deep understanding. of AutoCAD is not required but you should be able to. Pan and Zoom in the AutoCAD drawing screen, Describe what layers are in AutoCAD and change the current layer. Create basic CAD geometry such as lines polylines and circles. Use Object Snaps,Describe what blocks are and how to insert them. Perform basic CAD editing functions such as Erase Copy and Move. If you are not familiar with these functions you can refer to the AutoCAD Help system throughout the course. to gain the fundamental skills needed to complete the exercises. Conventions, The course uses the following icons and formatting to draw your attention to guidelines that increase your.
effectiveness in AutoCAD Map 3D or provide deeper insight into a subject. The magnifying glass indicates that this text provides deeper insights into the. The compass indicates that this text provides guidance that is based on the. experience of other users of AutoCAD Map 3D This guidance is often in the form of. how to perform a task more efficiently, The warning indicates that a specific exercise might not function properly on 64 bit. operating systems, The exercises in this course have been carefully chosen and designed to represent common tasks that are. performed by mapping and GIS professionals The data included in the exercises are typical drawings and. maps used by local governments and municipalities You work with road networks parcel maps sewer. collection systems water distribution systems aerial photos raster surfaces and much more. Exercises provide higher level process information throughout the exercise tasks You are given information. about not only what to do but why you are doing it In most cases an image is included to help guide you. Installing the Datasets, The CD included with this book contains all of the datasets required for the exercises. There are two ways to install the dataset,Use the Setup exe. Unzip the files,Use Setup exe, Double click setup exe and follow the instructions for installation.
Unzip the Files, Unzip AutoCAD Map 3D Training zip directly to the C drive The zip file will create the following folder. C A Practical Guide Map 3D 2013 Chapter Number Files for Exercises. 64 Bit Database Drivers, On 64 bit systems exercises that require a connection to an ODBC database need to have the proper drivers. from Microsoft installed If your system does not have these installed you can download them from Microsoft.
