Automated AutoCAD GIS export to Maricopa County DDMSW hydrology

I have finished the first version of the open source work-flow optimized application at AutoCAD Wiki.  It works like this:


Draw Polylines

Draw polylines representing all your sub-basins, all your TC paths, and your total basin.

Copy Polylines

Use DDMSWCOPY to make copies of your polylines where you will attach DDMSW GIS data as I described in an earlier post.

Command: DDMSWCOPY
Command: Select layer to toggle or Tc to continue [Rain (yes)/Sbas (yes)/Land (yes)/Soil (yes)/Tc] or <select objects>: TCopying Tc only. Select objects:26 selected. 2 filtered out.
