.dwg to .shp

Recommended Posts


I am trying to bring a .dwg file into ArcGIS...


Sometimes I can bring in a file that has been geo-referenced by clients, but when I try to set this myself it doesn't work.


Have tried going:

1. AutoCAD\Output\Map 3D Export\


2. AutoCAD\Home\Co-ord System\Assign\


3. In ArcCatalogue\Right-click\Propeties\Spacial Reference Properties


No sucess!


So, am using AutoCAD Map 3D, the files are .dwg files and am a complete novice in AutoCAD!!


Thanks in advance,

In the ArcGIS Help, type in "Using the Import From CAD tool". This might be what you need. I don't have any experience with ArcGIS but I have the program.

Hope this will help some.
