Utility Mapping – the benefits of GIS!
A GIS (Geographic Information System) is a computer-based tool used for mapping, managing, visualizing, and analyzing various tabular and spatial information including underground and above ground utilities such as water, gas, storm, sewer, electrical, steam, telecommunication, sprinkler, condensate, and much more. GIS is a map tied to a relational database with analytical tools in-between. The value and capabilities of GIS for utilities are endless.
BIM360 Design C4C3D (Collaboration for Civil 3D) was released yesterday!
