|Abstract:||Software for computer-aided design (CAD) and geographic information systems (GIS) are often used in conjunction with one another. This document proposes a methodology for effectively integrating data created using Autodesk’s AutoCAD R14, the most widely used CAD software package, with Environmental System Research Institute’s (ESRIÕs) ARC/INFO 7.2, the most widely used professional GIS software package. A brief discussion of software data models is provided, followed by an enumeration of certain entities that should never be used to represent AutoCAD data that is going to be converted using ARC/INFO. The document concludes with an example implementation of the proposed integration methodology.|
