This training demonstrates the geographic tools and functionality available in MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries). Previously only available in MicroStation GeoGraphics and Bentley Map, MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries) provides native support for geographic coordinate system setup and on-the-fly reprojection of references in different coordinate systems. This geographic coordinate system support allows for easier integration with ArcView Shapefiles, Google Earth, GPS devices, and WMS data servers.
Students are responsible for providing software licenses when attending any of EnvisionCAD’s open enrollment classes. Students who provide their own hardware are offered a $250 discount on registration fees.
