The 2023 Map 3D toolset is included with AutoCAD

Our model-based GIS mapping software provides access to CAD and GIS data to support planning, design, and management. With the Map 3D toolset, you can:

  • Directly access spatial data using Feature Data Objects (FDO) technology

  • Directly edit geospatial data

  • Manage infrastructure systems with Enterprise Industry Models

Productivity data based on a series of studies commissioned by Autodesk to an outside consultant. The seven toolset studies compared basic AutoCAD to the specialized toolsets within AutoCAD when performing tasks commonly done by experienced AutoCAD users. As with all performance tests, results may vary based on machine, operating system, filters, and even source material. While every effort has been made to make the tests as fair and objective as possible, your results may differ. Product information and specifications are subject to change without notice.
