March 28th, 2012 by Susan Smith
The big GIS related news from the Autodesk Media Summit this week in San Franciso is the launch of the Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite 2013 that provides civil engineering, GIS, planning and utility design professionals with building information modeling (BIM) for infrastructure solution for planning, designing, building and managing civil infrastructure and utility infrastructure projects. This is the first time for the integration of Autodesk’s Infrastructure Modeler 2013 into the 2013 Building Design Suite.
Available in three editions, Standard, Premium and Ultimate, Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite 2013 adds AutoCAD Raster Design 2013 software to all three editions. Autodesk Infrastructure Modeler 2013 software is now included in the Premium and Ultimate editions. AutoCAD Utility Design 2013 and Autodesk Revit Structure 2013 software have been added to the Ultimate edition. With these new tools for conceptual design, utility network design, structural engineering and working with raster imagery, professionals working on transportation, utility, land, and water infrastructure projects can more efficiently explore design options, better analyze project performance, and use visualization to help communicate with project stakeholders.
