GIS Data at Your Fingertips

Everyone is wanting to model things these days and you are going to need a skeleton to hang all of your project information on, and so in walks your GIS data. It all looks great on the screen when someone else does it but where do you go to get your data to start your project from? During the Autodesk University Infrastructure Symposium today three great resources were mentioned: USGS, WeoGeo, and DigitalGlobe. Add them to your bookmarks and next time you need some GIS take a look at what they have to offer!

Are there other resources that you have used? Please share your experiences in the comments.

Civil 3D Plugins: Earthmine and Pictometry

Today at the Autodesk University Infrastructure Symposium I heard about some neat plug-ins for Map 3D and Civil 3D today that I think will be worth looking into. They both offer street view information to help enhance your models.

Have you used these plug-ins before? I will be downloading them when I get back to the office next week and will let you know what I think!

For some screenshots of the presentation and links to their websites, read more!
