Learning objectives

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 2017.


  • Become familiar with AutoCAD MAP 3D 2017 user interface
  • Understand the fundamental concepts and features of AutoCAD MAP 3D 2017
  • 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

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)
  • Importing & Exporting Data (to/from Mapinfo/ArcGIS etc)
  • Coordinate Conversion (to/from Irish Grid/ITM)
  • Raster Data (georeference raster maps/orthophotos, digitise scanned maps)
  • Connecting Feature Sources (directly open MapInfo/ArcGIS/Access in autocad)
    • Filtering Feature Sources
    • Stylising Features (by colour, hatch, linetype, text labels, thematic mapping)
    • Joining two Feature Sources (e.g. map info & access database)
    • Creating Calculated Properties (in a data table & exporting in e.g. Excel, SDF)
    • Using Overlay Analysis (e.g. for CPO, wayleaves, area planning).


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