ArcGIS for AutoCAD Build 200 is an example of integrating ArcGIS Server functionality with a popular desktop application. In this session, attendees will learn how to write a .NET application that works within AutoCAD, how to call ArcGIS for AutoCAD functions from a .NET application, how to use Esris new Mapping Specification for Drawings (MSD) without ArcGIS for AutoCAD to prepare AutoCAD drawings for merging into a geodatabase, and how to access geoprocessing functionality from within the AutoCAD environment. Developers will find out how to leverage MSD GIS data structures in AutoCAD applications to promote GIS/CAD interoperability by managing coordinate systems, feature classes, and feature attributes using AutoCAD graphic and nongraphic entities.
