Come learn how the newest version of the popular ArcGIS for AutoCAD plug-in allows you to edit ArcGIS data using plain AutoCAD.

Use smart GIS maps within your AutoCAD drafting session and navigate within your drawings based on address or place names. Easily find and add imagery as a backdrop to any drawing. Enable your AutoCAD seat to support ArcGIS image services, feature services, map services and locator services. Connect to services that are already made available by your GIS IT administrator and/or by the GIS community in the cloud. Explore best practice methods for working between AutoCAD and ArcGIS using this free downloadable plug-in even if you have just a single seat of AutoCAD and no GIS.
