Civil 3D for Surveyors

The Civil 3D for Surveyors course introduces surveyors or consumers of survey data to the tools and workflows that are included within the Civil 3D environment. You concentrate on the survey functions that are typically in use on a daily basis. We focus on the processing of raw survey data into a recognised CAD format with Civil 3D objects for use by the wider design team. This makes the capture and presentation of survey data much smarter. This course gives you the knowledge to start using Civil 3D as part of your surveying workflow.
