When AutoCAD or LD is used by many Highway Departments, it only makes sense to use this software for our GIS needs instead of using other software such as ESRI. Two issues involve Creating and Using. Creation of measured plines apparently takes more software than the use and display does. What better sense than to make use of the software we all use anyway, to be able to make use of X, Y, and Z values to calibrate the lines. As it is now, AutoCAD Map destroys the M value of current measured polyline shape files.
