• Connecting Feature Sources (directly open MapInfo/ArcGIS/MS Access in Autocad)
- Filtering Feature Sources
- Stylising Features (by colour, hatch, linetype. text labels, thematic mapping)
- Joining two Feature Sources (e.g. mapinfo & access database)
- Creating Calculated Properties (in a data table & exporting in e.g. Excel, SDF)
- Using Overlay Analysis (e.g. for CPO, wayleaves, area planning)
