At MCA, we strive to keep up with the latest advances in technology to help us work smarter for our clients. Our professional surveyors use Global Positioning System (GPS) and Geographic Information System (GIS) every day. But another key tool they now use is AutoCAD Civil 3D. This advanced software gives our survey teams more control of survey points so they can perform adjustments as needed and work faster using surface creation and editing.

Using AutoCAD Civil 3D, our team can more precisely:

  • Start a new drawing form a Civil 3D template that includes all of the necessary styles
  • Assign a Coordinate System to the drawing file
  • Attach Image and Digital Elevation Model (DEM) files using the Data Connect command
  • Create AutoCAD Civil 3D surfaces from source data
  • Style the layers for presentation or publication purposes
  • Analyze data
  • Create labels and legends to annotate the drawing

Any software takes time to learn, but our philosophy at MCA is to take the time to educate our team so they are always ahead of the curve in today’s fast-paced world. When we resist change, we take away the ability to grow which is something every business must do to stay successful.
