5 “Must-Watch” InfraWorks 360 Classes from Autodesk University

Autodesk University (AU) is a great event for anyone looking to explore new innovations in digital design or brush up on their software skills. But not all public sector organizations have the budget to send their CAD teams to AU. No problem! AU has assembled a catalog of on-demand sessions that you can watch for free. You can also download the presentations, workbooks, and transcripts to keep by your side as you explore what you’ve learned.

Has Your Agency Looked at Autodesk Collections Yet?

As you may know Autodesk Industry Collections became available to government agencies as of February 1. This date also coincided with the retirement of perpetual licenses for most of its products, including AutoCAD, Civil 3D, Inventor, Revit, and more. But what’s so great about these new collections and how do they differ from the old Autodesk Suites?

First let’s explain what a collection is.

What’s New in InfraWorks 360 and Civil 3D

Last fall saw some major updates to Autodesk’s flagship civil engineering software -  InfraWorks 360 and AutoCAD Civil 3D.

To give users an overview of what’s new, the Autodesk product team have come together for “The Dan and Dave Show” once more. What features will be added or updated? Why were these changes chosen over others? The on-demand video below includes answers to these questions and more from the guys who call the shots when it comes to the development of InfraWorks 360 and Civil 3D.

Webinar: Autodesk & Caltrans - “Surveying with Integrated GIS”

Improvements in surveying data collection processes and hardware have made it easier for surveyors to capture multiple attributes in the field for downstream surveying, engineering, and integrated GIS usage.

For end users, this translates to an enriched environment and new opportunities for transportation and civil engineers. However, in the past, these users have been restricted to using differing versions of the data, without a version of the full width and breadth of information captured – until now.

Keeping Pace with Climate Change: Flood Analysis and Mapping Tools

Flood risk assessment and mitigation is a critical part of any civil engineer’s job. After Superstorm Sandy devastated the New Jersey/New York shore in 2012, it was discovered shortly thereafter that federal flood maps drawn up by FEMA were wrong. Unfortunately for many home and business owners, developers relied on FEMA’s assessment of risks when they built new homes near the water and property owners made decisions about whether to buy flood insurance based on those maps.
