CADD Statewide Development
The Production Support CADD Office, with input from the Districts and design community, develops and maintains the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Computer Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) Standards for CADD production and related activities. The Production Support CADD Office delivers CADD Software to reflect those standards and maintains the CADD Manual in coordination with the CADD Software to document those standards in accordance with the FDOT Design Manual (FDM). The FDOT CADD Software and installation requirements are available from the Production Support CADD Office websites.
CADD Statewide Support
The Production Support CADD Office supports CADD Software used for in-house CADD production as set forth in the CADD Manual. Consultant support is limited to FDOT developed and distributed software, interfaces, and configurations. Consultants seeking general CADD software support should seek assistance from their re-seller or software vendor account representative. The CADD Manual establishes the hierarchy of CADD related support roles performed by FDOT staff.
