Civil 3D® for Surveyors

This video lesson series takes a look at Civil 3D from a Surveyors perspective. The instructor begins with importing field data and takes you through the steps to create and adjust a traverse, creating a boundary, subdividing the parcel, and importing TOPO. At the conclusion, you will see how to create sheets for both the boundary plat and TOPO map for the project. Along the way, comparisons will be made to Land Desktop to help those migrating from that program over to Civil 3D. The lessons are taught by a practicing civil engineer with extensive experience using both programs in real-world projects.
