AutoCAD 2014 Now With Built-in Geolocation

AutoCAD 2014 and Bing Maps

Did you know that AutoCAD 2014 now has a built-in Geolocation feature, allowing users to create and enhance their designs with Bing Maps geocoding and map data. Bing Maps inside AutoCAD 2014 brings in location context and results in more accurate and richer designs. The key geolocation workflows in AutoCAD 2014 supported with Bing Maps include the following: 

  • Aggregate and overlay 2D and 3D geolocated data with your AutoCAD designs
  • Locate yourself on your AutoCAD design in the field using GPS and Bing Maps
  • Locate your AutoCAD design in the real-world using Bing Maps geocoding service
  • View your AutoCAD design in the real-world high resolution aerial and satellite imagery

Overlaying your own data over Bing imagery (via Mapperz)
