Documenting ArcGIS for AutoCAD Schema
Here is an AutoLisp command that will write out a text file report of the ArcGIS for AutoCAD schema that is included in my current AutoCAD drawing session. This is a great way for me to document on paper my GIS and CAD interoperability standards. The report includes the Esri attribute schema definitions, the coordinate system and the filtering criterion that defines how my AutoCAD standards are interpreted as feature classes by ArcGIS.
Download it, unzip it, then load and run the command in ArcGIS for AutoCAD. It will create a text file that has the same name as the drawing in the same location with an .MSCr file extension.
This command is one of several available in the Esri CAD code gallery that can be used to extend the functionality of ArcGIS for AutoCAD.
For tournament time, I’m thinking we start out MATRIX and if they pack-it-in, we go THRILLER, if we’re not converting then we attack the COZY ZONE and focus on skip-pass ball reversals, and DEATH STAR opportunities. :)
