Autodesk is pleased to announce the release of Autodesk Infrastructure Modeler 2012 ( formerly known as Project Galileo ).
Autodesk Infrastructure Modeler conceptual design software helps engineers, GIS and planning professionals create, evaluate,and communicate compelling infrastructure project proposals in the context of the built and natural environment. Use Infrastructure Modeler to drive faster stakeholder buy-in and more confident decision making with visually rich proposals of your next transportation, land,water, or energy project.
Thousands have tried out Project Galileo on Autodesk Labs and gave feedback on other related technology projects. Autodesk product management is doing their best to incorporate feedback from real customers and provide a solution that blends well with other products that people use, but simplifies some really complex workflows today.
The Autodesk Labs team has posted a new Project Galileo video on YouTube. The video is narrated by Lynda Sharkey and explains some of the conceptual design postioning that we are exploring with the technology.
