Survey Tutorials

These tutorials will get you started working with the AutoCAD Civil 3D survey features.

AutoCAD Civil 3D contains a complete set of tools that surveyors can use to download and process survey information, perform adjustments on network and traverse data, and import survey points into a AutoCAD Civil 3D drawing.

An easy-to-use wizard enables you to import survey data from various data sources, including points in the current drawing, and field book, LandXML, and point files. When the field crew codes survey points using a predetermined format, a linework code set can be used to process the linework quickly either during or after import.

The survey features also provide options for detailing points with figures and line work. Other options provide the capability of calculating directions based on astronomic observations.

For more information, see the AutoCAD Civil 3D Help topic Understanding Survey.
