Utilities workflow in Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite 2013

April 17th, 2012 by Susan Smith

While Autodesk does not talk about GIS much these days, embedded in their Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite 2013 is a Utilities Workflow that offers intelligent model based software for meeting the complex needs of the SmartGrid, with GIS products built in. The emphasis appears to be on helping transform planning, design and management processes by capturing conditions at the start of the design process, useful for both designers and GIS professionals.

As part of this suite, AutoCAD Map 3D makes it possible to access more information in an AutoCAD environment that can access design, GIS, imagery, point cloud and business information and GIS data using AutoCAD commands to complete basemaps. With raster editing and raster to vector conversion tools, AutoCAD Raster Design helps you use or reuse scanned paper drawings, maps, satellite images, aerial photos and similar digital data. With AutoCAD Utility Design, it is said you can also improve design productivity and consistency.

The suite can integrate with inventory and billing systems.

GIS and records management can maintain a single source of truth. It is expected that managing this model in a database environment can make it easy to share.
