    Default CAD to GIS

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Has anyone out there made this transition yet ?
    If so, can you give me some pointers as to best practices, things to be aware of, time-saver, trip hazards, etc ?

    I've just been informed that I am to setup, and develop some form of GIS capability at the office. As I have very limited knowledge of it at the moment, I am seriously looking at expanding that.

    Thanks for any help or guidance you may wish to offer.

    Are you going to be using Autodesk or ESRI applications?

    the favourite at the moment seems to be MapGuide. Other than that I haven't a clue.

    I use AutoCAD Map and ESRI ArcGIS. Each has it's strengths. I'd suggest a training course...ESRI has many.
