The primary objective of the course is to teach Autocad users involved in Mapping and/or GIS the most useful functions of AutoCAD MAP 3D.


  • Become familiar with AutoCAD MAP 3D user interface
  • Understand the fundamentals concepts and features of AutoCAD MAP 3D
  • Use a range of tools in AutoCAD MAP 3D to produce drawings
  • Use tools in AutoCAD MAP 3D to link to, and analyse, GIS data
  • Present mapping drawings in a visually impressive manner


Trainees should be competent AutoCAD 2D users.  Good Geospatial and Mapping understanding an advantage.  A working knowledge of Windows based operating systems is essential.

Course Content

  • Drawing Cleanup (automatic trim/extend/delete/break etc)
  • Object Data (add attributes to any AutoCAD object)
  • Connecting to a Database (link MS Access data to AutoCAD objects)
  • Creating Dynamic Annotation (add text automatically to drawings)
