CAD and GIS Integration Workshop at AU2009

A new addition to Autodesk University (AU2009) is the Unconference Session where session content is created and driven by participants. Unconference Sessions represent an opportunity for you to engage with your peers around specific topics of interest. Lectures and formal presentations give way to open discussions where the sharing of ideas and experiences is encouraged.

This year, my colleague Neal Niemiec and I are delighted to be leading a 90-minute session entitled, “The Billion Dollar Opportunity: A Workshop on CAD/GIS Integration”. This workshop is aimed at engineers, surveyors, architects, CAD and GIS professionals, and anyone interested in the CAD/GIS integration issue. Anticipated discussion topics will include:

  • Drivers for CAD/GIS integration
  • CAD/GIS integration scenarios
  • Approaches for addressing CAD/GIS integration issues
The opportunity for open dialog during this workshop is exciting. So, if you have a specific issue that you want us to include on the agenda, please post a comment. If you’re going to be attending AU2009, be sure to register for our session (
Class ID: GS122-3) and come say “Hello”. We look forward to meeting you!

I think coordinate systems discussion… though quite boring …should be part of the discussion. Grid to ground conversion is a daily occurrence in the transportation design world practical solutions are always welcome.
