Dana’s AU Papers: Large Surfaces and Civil 3D to Help with Hydrology

I’m posting my papers here because there were some problems with the hard copies in class yesterday. I will also post them on AU Online (http://au.autodesk.com) as soon as I figure out how.

Get Your Head out of the Point Cloud:
Using AutoCAD® Civil 3D® for Large Surface Datasets
Dana Breig Probert, Engineered Efficiency 
CV310-4 These days, we seem to be buried in data — but how much data is too much? It’s often difficult enough to open our data files, let alone build a meaningful TIN surface from them. We know we need to use high-tech field-collection information, such as LIDAR, Aerial Topography, and GPS points, so let’s figure out a way to use it with the software and computer systems we currently have in our office.

Using AutoCAD® Civil 3D® for Stormwater Management Tasks: Part I, Hydrology
Dana Breig Probert, Engineered Efficiency 
CV314-2 This class will show you how to harness the power of AutoCAD Civil 3D 2008 to assist in designing and performing a TR-55/TR-20 or Rational Method Stormwater Management Analysis, including techniques for annotating plans, creating tables and preparing for modeling in your favorite hydrology software package.
