Sham Tickoo is a professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering Technology at Purdue University Calumet, USA. He has been teaching CAD/CAM, AutoCAD, AutoLISP, drafting, and design since 1981. In addition to his academic career, Professor Tickoo has worked as a machinist, quality control engineer, design engineer, and software developer and his general research interests are in the design and development of new products like wind turbines. He has authored and co-authored several books on CAD/CAM like CATIA, NX, Pro/E, SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Autodesk Inventor, and 3ds Max. Sham Tickoo received his Masters of Science Degree in Industrial Technology from Northern Illinois University and his Masters of Science Degree in Industrial and Management Engineering from the University of Iowa, Iowa City. This textbook introduces the readers to  AutoCAD MAP 3D 2017, one of the world’s leading mapping software designed specifically to create and analyze geospatial data. In this textbook, the author emphasizes the tools, options, functions, and interoperability of AutoCAD Map 3D that allow the users to create, analyze and save complex geospatial data easily and effectively. Furthermore, the chapters in this textbook are arranged in a pedagogical sequence that makes it very effective in learning the features and capabilities of the software.
