GeoTools is a productivity tool for AutoCAD. It works on AutoCAD versions 2009-2004 and all vertical applications built on these AutoCAD versions.
GeoTools helps you finish your AutoCAD tasks faster, smarter and more efficiently, minimizing operator errors, automating repetitive and commonly asked AutoCAD production tasks.
The program was conceived and written with geographic data users in mind. Typical industries which would benefit from GeoTools are GIS / Mapping, Planning, Utilities and Infrastructure, Facilities Management, Surveying and engineering industries. With over 225 tools covering various function categories like Polylines, Text, Blocks, Attributes, Conversion, Autodesk Map, Civil etc, the program has enough tools that is of benefit and use for just about any AutoCAD user.
Download fully functional 30-day evaluation version atGeoTools offers: - multiple user interfaces - is fully dialog box driven - is 100 % icon and pull-down menu driven - and is command line compatible for un-attended script file (SCR) operations.
In addition, each command has several options and sub-options to fine- tune the way each command works. This makes each command very flexible in its capability to handle processing parameters.
Flexible purchase options: You now no longer need to purchase the entire toolkit. Our 'MyGeoTools' feature allows you to order only the required tools that you need. Check out this URL for more info:GeoTools also ships now with a GDF Viewer in AutoCAD which can bring up GDF files and display the geometry and also be able to query point, line, areas, attributes, relationships, complex and conversion features etc. The program is still in beta and under development but it demonstrates our growing competence and interest in handling GDF files.
What is GDF?
GDF means Geographic Data Files. It is a standard data exchange format and a data model used for modeling navigation data. It is used to describe road networks & road-related data and is an international standard ISO/TC204 / CEN/TC 278.
