“The biggest improvement in Carlson Survey 2012 Embedded AutoCAD is in its 3D aspects,” says David Carlson, V.P. of Development for Carlson Software. “The 3D viewer has updates including showing 3D objects, the symbol library has a collection of 3D trees, vehicles, people and utilities, and field-to-finish has new 3D coding.”
