Autodesk Envision 8 software is an ideal tool for professionals involved in mapping, planning, surveying, civil engineering, and facilities/infrastructure management projects. Autodesk’s latest technologies, including Autodesk Envision 8, allow the user to create, share, and manage mapping and design data throughout the project lifecycle. The application works stand-alone on a Laptop PC, a desktop computer, or over the Internet, and will be included in both the Autodesk� Civil Series and Autodesk Map� Series.

Autodesk Envision 8 Key New Features

  • Extend the functionality of data -- Built on Microsoft’s .NET technology, Autodesk Envision 8 software gives organizations the tools to share valuable information and create custom applications.
