Two different land surveyors asked me this same question the other day: Why do I need to know and use AutoCAD Civil 3D?
Of course, the subtext of this question is that 1) AutoCAD Civil 3D isn’t for land surveyors, and 2) Most industry firms use one of the “other” land surveying software packages.
Both of the above two myths aren’t true. Regardless, whether you’re a land surveying firm owner, an employee, or job-seeking land surveyor, you should know how to use AutoCAD Civil 3D.
