Home > Features > Feature Article: AEC IT CAD Survey Report Publication


The Architosh AEC CAD IT Survey Report for 2002 publication marks a historical moment for the history of the site and for Macintosh-based CAD/AEC professionals in general. Never before has then been such a detailed and comprehensive IT report available that would enable Mac IT professionals and firm principals in the AEC world to make informed decisions about their information technology needs.

Additionally, this report--which is covered in some detail in our special feature articles--assist non-Macintosh users considering making a switch from PC to Mac or supplementing PC-based networks with Macintosh computers.

The Architosh AEC CAD IT Survey Report publication is a physically bound report (8.5 x11 in.), printed in high quality color ink-jet on high-quality bright-white paper. Exceeding 50 pages of detailed information (see below) the report includes over two dozen helpful graphs and charts, detailing the findings of the survey.

Also included is a private Web site where readers can download the full set of QuickTime animated charts and graphs as well as the original Apple Keynote application files for inclusion in your own internal IT business presentations. During the year (2003) this private Web site for readers will be updated with additional information and media.
