- SimTel's software archive for the Windows version of AutoCAD
- CAD resources from Cornell University
- TnT-Maps lite, a version of GIS software avalible for free. This software is a complete GIS package including raster, vector, cad and tin formats. It can be used on a Mac, PC or workstation.
Lots of info can be obtained from the makers of all this; so here are some
adresses of manufacturers of soft- and hardware on the net.
