Import and Design Parcels from GIS SHP Data



Shawn Herring of ProSoft steps through the details of a quick and dirty SHP file Parcel drag and drop Import and an a brief concept parcel design in Civil 3D.
From the ProSoft YouTube Channel


Shawn covers the basic mechanics here pretty quickly and well. You'd maybe like to see a Parcel report or two?

I'd probably refine the scope a bit more with a Map Query on an attached Parcels drawing, but that's just me.
It is hard find really clean parcel data from most public sources. SHP can hide a lot of geometry sins and duplicates.
Without a MAPCLEAN process on the geometry you may create some interesting parcel segment junk that can come back to haunt you.
