NEW DELHI, India—Autodesk India announced new Infrastructure Modeling software products, which help users in utilities, telecommunications organisations and government agencies improve the design and management of their infrastructure. Autodesk’s portfolio of products—including AutoCAD Map 3D 2010, AutoCAD Raster Design 2010, Autodesk MapGuide Enterprise 2010, and Autodesk Topobase 2010–provide users with an intelligent and comprehensive solution for designing, visualising, simulating and analysing infrastructure assets and development plans.
Autodesk’s Infrastructure Modeling software products provide users with world class design, mapping, data aggregation and management tools they need across the infrastructure design and management workflow. Autodesk announced new versions of the following products:
AutoCAD Map 3D 2010 software is an engineering solution for creating and managing spatial data. Using open-source Feature Data Object (FDO) data access technology, AutoCAD Map 3D 2010 software provides direct access to the data formats used in design and GIS and enables the use of AutoCAD software tools for maintaining a broad variety of spatial information.
AutoCAD Raster Design 2010 software extends the power of AutoCAD software and AutoCAD-based products by enabling engineers and designers to use scanned paper drawings, maps, satellite images, aerial photos, and similar digital imagery within their design projects. With this tool, designers can easily turn scanned designs into digital CAD data that can be incorporated into infrastructure models.
Autodesk MapGuide Enterprise 2010 software is a powerful mapping platform for delivering CAD and GIS information quickly, easily, and cost-effectively via the web. It helps to maximise the value of design and spatial data by enabling information sharing with customers and internal teams, as well as integrating with enterprise applications.
Autodesk Topobase 2010 infrastructure model management software provides a single source of accurate network information for maintenance, planning, reporting, and integration into asset management and operational systems. Built on AutoCAD Map 3D and Autodesk MapGuide software, Topobase is an open solution with industry-specific workflows that helps customers reduce backlogs, enhance data quality and improve operational efficiency.
