Well, the web page says it was released July 4th, 2012 and that it's only compatible with Revit products. http://apps.exchange.autodesk.com/RVT/Detail/Index?id=appstore.exchange.autodesk.com%3acadtoearth%3a...

Hello Dave, What is the latest on the subject? Will the problem be solved with V2014?

We are considering running an additional product, with Google interactivity, in parrallel to C3D. Should we proceed with this?

Great question - no chance of a response until the 2014 products have been released:smileywink:

 

I just hope that functionality like this will not end up being bundled exclusively with the suites rather than standalone Civil 3D in an effort to extract more cash from the users.....

Autodesk really messed this up. Notwithstanding other issues with the software, I will not move on from C3D 2012 until the issue is resolved.

Any update at all? Or was this all just theater when really Autodesk doesn't know what they are going to do to replace the previous content? It appears the Bing stuff is a little half baked and not near as easy to use as the previous GE features.

Autodesk won't say anything about what they are working on. Interested in seeing what might be coming in the near future for the program you work on? Sign up for the beta program: beta.autodesk.com

 

Other than that, you'll have to wait and see.

Being that there may never be a resolution to Google's liking, I'd prefer if Autodesk did something simlar to project Basemap (Bing), where data can imported into MAP 3D, however, using USGS maps and layers found at http://viewer.nationalmap.gov/viewer/. Sure I can download the data from the site and then connect to it through Map 3D, however, it's time consuming. The Bing map connection is smooth and quick.

 

USGS data is in the public domain, whereas the Bing Maps like Google are available for use, as long as Microsoft and Autodesk play nice. We've seen where that goes. Once MS starts asking for money, there goes project Basemap.

 

I'd also like to be able to access local GIS data (in the public domain) such as http://gis.nyc.gov/doitt/nycitymap/ seemlessly.

About 2 weeks ago I received an email from ArcGis that changes were being made to Bing Maps.  I was suspecting that   changes would be coming to our community as well.  Unfortunately my old computer with the appropriate email is temporarily on the "fritz", so as best as I can remember their currently free Bing Maps would be ending in February (I think).

 

And a "pay" service would be starting later on.  If I have this all wrong, my apologies in advance.

Ha! I figured it was too good to be true.

Jasono2009, it isn't Autodesk fault; they didn't drop the ball. It's just the nature of the beast. There is no such thing as a free meal. I still have C3D 2012, for quick Google Earth images, but I've moved design to C3D 2013. Besides GE images were never accurate. Anyhow, I'd still like a seemless connection to USGS data.

 

That'll be good until it is moved out of the public domain, probably for national security reasons. Wanna guess maybe next year?

 

That's just the way life is...enjoy it while you can, and move on with no hard feelings, because it was a free meal.

Yes I got the same email from ESRI and you are recalling it correctly. There is or will be a pay service available.
