our training is unique

My AutoCAD Map 3D training taught by Alex proved to be exactly as advertised. Alex is an excellent instructor. His text and presentation are well thought out with clear instructions for each chapter and exercise. Alex's knowledge of GIS is impressive, yet he was very patient in answering my basic questions. I highly recommend the course as an excellent return on investment. I expect my new skills will change the course my of career in site planning and development. - Steve Scudder, Boy Scouts of America


Introduction to MAP 3D




During this course, you'll learn the core concepts of AutoCAD MAP 3D  and gain comprehensive experience with the features and benefits of AutoCAD MAP 3D. Learn about the features and functions of AutoCAD Map 3D, including how to create, manage, and analyze mapping data. The class guides students through the fundamental and some advanced features of AutoCAD Map 3D.


The objectives of this course are performance based. In other words, once you have completed the

course, you will be able to perform each objective listed. If you are already familiar with AutoCAD Map 3D, you will be able to analyze your existing workflows, and make changes to improve your performance based on the tools and features that you learn and practice in this course.


A working knowledge of the following: AutoCAD and its functions and knowledge of design and drafting concepts dealing with mapping topics and experience with Microsoft Windows XP or Microsoft Windows 7.


Course Outline


The exercises in this course have been carefully chosen and designed to represent common tasks that are performed by mapping and GIS professionals. The data included in the exercises are typical drawings and maps used by local governments and municipalities. You work with road networks, parcel maps, sewer collection systems, water distribution systems, aerial photos, raster surfaces, and much more.


Exercises provide higher level process information throughout the exercise tasks. You are given

information about not only what to do, but why you are doing it. Each step in an exercise provides you with all of the information you need to effectively support that step. In most cases, an image is included in each step to help guide you.
