Digging into Autodesk Land Desktop 2006

$74.95 $39.95


This book takes you through a complete project using Autodesk Land Desktop and Autodesk Civil Design. It is 260 pages long and organized into 8 chapters, beginning with project setup, importing survey and GIS data, continuing through road design and exporting points for staking.

Largely exercise based, it provides step-by-step procedures for many common tasks.

The book is ideal for instructor led training and can also stand alone as reference material for users of all skill levels.

There are few changes in this updated version of our 2004 book, most involve the AutoCAD interface, as the LDT software has changed little in the past few years. This book works well for all versions of LDT, 2004 and later.
