It’s a big world out there and just brimming with data. According to a recent Forbes article online, “Leaders Need AI To Keep Pace With The Data Explosion,” the amount of data being created doubles every two years. If you need to import data into Autodesk InfraWorks for use on your projects, the options you have these days may seem a bit overwhelming. This is a good time to take advantage of the data workflows to and from Esri ArcGIS Online and then into InfraWorks. Even better, it’s a great time to partner with Applied Software to help you with that process.
Why use ArcGIS Online instead of just InfraWorks?
Among the many advantages of using ArcGIS Online is the abundance of publicly available data within ArcGIS Online. The Living Atlas, which is data hosted and curated by Esri, is an amazing resource, with NAIP (National Agricultural Imaging Program) imagery, terrain information, bedrock depths, soil information, and a host of other pertinent data. Check out the variety of information you can find on the Living Atlas.
