------------------------------------------------------------------
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.

GeoTools 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.
