Campus Planning and Facilities Management at NCSU wants to incorporate a geodatabase in the management of university facilities. The issue involves integrating a CAD-based campus master plan into an ArcMap geodatabase (GDB). Due to the overlap of use of these two different software packages in many of the same industries, integration has become more standard.


Analysis Procedures

The CAD drawing file had 5 features; only 2 were needed for the master plan. Since the CAD data is being used as an overlay, it had to be georeferenced to the orthophoto, as well as selecting control points, creating a world data file. The feature class to polygon tool was used for rendering lines and missing segments into complete polygons. The final step was to import this into a geodatabase.
