AU Online - Creating AutoCAD Civil 3D Surfaces with LIDAR Data by Matt Miyamoto

Ideate is so proud of the positive feedback that our own Matt Miyamoto garnered for his AutoCAD Civil 3D and LIDAR presentation at AU 2009:
  • speaker’s knowledge = 9.3 out of 10
  • overall presentation = 8.7 out of 10
  • recommend the speaker = 95%
  • comments = “Outstanding job!” and “Well prepared presentation. This class was the best for content and presentation of material.”

To see what the excitement was about, visit AU Online for the screencast from Matt Miyamoto's AU 2009 presentation.

CV318-4 Connecting the Dots: Creating AutoCAD® Civil 3D® Surfaces with LIDAR Data
Technological improvements continue to increase the availability of LIDAR data. However, we have not always had access to the tools necessary for taking advantage of these large data sets. With potentially millions of points, Civil 3D now provides us with a tool that we can use to take advantage of LIDAR data for our designs. In this class, Matt reviews some of the issues associated with LIDAR data, and goes over the tools available in Civil 3D that allow you to manage your data more efficiently and reduce drawing file size. See how Civil 3D allows us to connect the dots, creating surface models that we can use to develop layouts for master plans, flood boundaries for mapping and drainage analysis, and preliminary site design for permitting and earthwork estimations.

Primary software: AutoCAD Civil 3D.
