As we have been talking about for a while, Autodesk and Esri have begun a new collaboration bringing GIS and BIM together to make design decisions and change the way AEC projects are planned. Brockwell is a partner to both ESRI and Autodesk, and we are currently working for both of these organizations on various integration projects. Through this work, we have become an essential part of the team designing and developing the integration that will help these two platforms communicate and increase their ability to share data for smarter designs.
Autodesk’s collaboration with Esri and their efforts to connect BIM and GIS is the first step in realizing their vision of this partnership and the full integration between BIM and GIS. Brockwell is a strategic partner for both Autodesk and Esri and is supporting their efforts by providing expertise and development for both platforms.
To promote this collaboration, Esri is inviting Autodesk customers to a special limited time offer to receive a complimentary subscription for Esri ArcGIS Online for one year. With ArcGIS Online, you can use and create maps and scenes, access ready-to-use maps, layers and analytics from Living Atlas of the World, publish data as web layers, as well as collaborate, share, and access maps from any device.
From July 11, 2018 through December 31, 2019, Autodesk AEC Collection subscription customers, and customers with an Autodesk Enterprise Business Agreement (EBA), are invited to take advantage of one year complimentary subscription to Esri ArcGIS Online that includes:
- One ArcGIS Online organization account with 400 ArcGIS Online service credits
- A number of ArcGIS Online level 2 (L2) named user licenses (which includes read and write access) equivalent to the number of AEC Collection named users
- If an Autodesk customer adds additional users, each of these new users will be entitled to an ArcGIS Online L2 membership and be added to the existing ArcGIS Online offer term period
- Once the ArcGIS Online subscription is activated, Autodesk customers will have access to ArcGIS Online complimentary for one year from that activation date.
If you are looking to be on the forefront of the new developments these organizations have to offer, this promotion is a great way to get started. Have questions? Want to know more? Contact us!
