Exploring AutoCAD Raster Design 2017 is a comprehensive book that has been written to cater to the needs of the students and the professionals who are involved in GIS profession. AutoCAD Raster Design has interoperability with major design and data conversion software packages. This feature allows the Raster Design users to access CAD and GIS data from various sources to perform raster to vector conversion. In AutoCAD Raster Design, you can connect a raster dataset at the software platform and georeference it with ease. In this book, complex vectorization processes have been illustrated through easy-to-understand flow diagrams. Also, various processes such as manipulating and managing old CAD data and displaying spatial data have been covered in this book. The book also introduces users to the concepts of industry model database for managing spatial data. The simple and lucid language used in this book makes it a ready reference for both the beginners and the intermediate users. Salient Features: Detailed explanation of AutoCAD Raster Design tools Real-world CAD and GIS projects given as tutorials Tips and Notes throughout the book 226 pages of heavily illustrated text Self-Evaluation Tests, Review Questions, and Exercises at the end of the chapters Table of Contents: Chapter 1: Introduction to AutoCAD Raster Design 2017 Chapter 2: Insert, View, and Rubbersheet Tools Chapter 3: Image Management Tools Chapter 4: Image Processing Chapter 5: Raster Entity Manipulation (REM) Tools Chapter 6: Vectorization Tools Chapter 7: Multispectral Images and Digital Elevation Models Index

Exploring AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018 book introduces the users to the powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) solution, AutoCAD Civil 3D. The BIM solution in AutoCAD Civil 3D helps create and visualize a coordinated data model. This data model can then be used to design and analyze a civil engineering project for its optimum and cost-effective performance. This book has been written considering the needs of the professionals such as engineers, surveyors, watershed and storm water analysts, land developers and CAD technicians, who wish to learn and explore the usage and abilities of AutoCAD Civil 3D in their respective domains. This book provides comprehensive text and graphics to explain various concepts and procedures required in designing solutions for various infrastructure works. The accompanying tutorials and exercises, which relate to the real-world projects, help you better understand the tools in AutoCAD Civil 3D. This book consists of 13 Chapters covering Points Creations, Surface Creations, Surface Analysis, Corridor Modeling, Pipe Networks, Pressure Networks, Parcels, Corridor Bowties and Dynamic Profiles and so on. Each chapter begins with a command section that provides a detailed explanation of the commands and tools in AutoCAD Civil 3D. The chapters in this book cover the basic as well as advanced concepts in AutoCAD Civil 3D such as COGO points, surfaces and surface analysis, alignments, profiles, sections, grading, assemblies, corridor modeling, earthwork calculations, and pipe and pressure networks. This edition covers the description of all enhancements and newly introduced tools. Salient Features: Consists of 13 chapters that are arranged in pedagogical sequence covering the scope of the software Consists of 806 pages, more than 765 illustrations, and a comprehensive coverage of concepts and tools Consists of 38 tutorials and about 20 exercises which provide real-world experience of designing engineering projects using AutoCAD Civil 3D Step-by-step examples to guide the users through the learning process Additional information provided throughout the book in the form of tips and notes Self-Evaluation test, Review Questions, and Exercises are given at the end of each chapter so that the users can assess their knowledge Table of Contents Chapter 1: Introduction to AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018 Chapter 2: Working with Points Chapter 3: Working with Surfaces Chapter 4: Surface Volumes and Analysis Chapter 5: Alignments Chapter 6: Working with Profiles Chapter 7: Working with Assemblies and Subassemblies Chapter 8: Working with Corridors and Parcels Chapter 9: Sample Lines, Sections, and Quantity Takeoffs Chapter 10: Feature Lines and Grading Chapter 11: Pipe Networks Chapter 12: Pressure Networks Chapter 13: Working with Plan Production Tools, and Data Shortcuts Index
