One of my favorite Autodesk presenters, Angel Espinoza, shared some insight into improving the quality of Aerial Images from models built using the Autodesk InfraWorks 360 Model Builder. I found this information so helpful, I thought I would share the 4 Steps to Improving Aerial Image Quality in InfraWorks 360.

BIM for Infrastructure is now!
This is your chance to learn how to take advantage of BIM within Infrastructure throughout design, engineering, and construction. As an ever increasing number of infrastructure projects use Building Information Modeling (BIM), many in the industry are realizing they need to embrace BIM to compete and win new work. A range of appealing benefits accompany projects that use a BIM-based approach: less rework, fewer errors, enhanced collaboration, and useful design data.

A new offering in the InfraWorks portfolio is the Bridge Design for InfraWorks 360. As you can see in the capture below, it is located under Specialize. Others you may see are roadway and drainage design, depending on additional options purchased.
In the example I have created below, I have shown a proposed road crossing an existing highway.
One of the new options in InfraWorks 360 is the Model Builder. Model Builder is a preview only option, and requires the user to agree to terms prior to access.
It is designed for the user to type in an address, or zoom to a given area in which they would like to create a model as seen in the capture below. Once you have your given area chosen, simply enter a name for model and choose the 360 group associated with your account. These options are located in the bottom left as seen below. InfraWorks now goes out to the web to grab a surface, imagery, and pertinent information such as roads and buildings.
This past month, Autodesk Infraworks 360 was released. The user interface has been changed to be more contextual, were each icon will lead us to a specific group of commands.
As you can see from the capture, you are given a few choices to select from the top of the screen. For example if I select the I, the following options will be presented.
From here, create and manage your model, select model features, create conceptual features, and analyze your model.
