MapWorks

MapWorks is Civil/Survey and Mapping software for AutoCAD and Civil3D. It covers the major areas of design, points, sections, surfaces, and more. While it's primarily designed for basic AutoCAD (or verticals like ADT/MAP), when the application is running inside Civil3D it detects and uses it's points, parcels, and surfaces directly!
