I am implementing the ArcGIS for AutoCAD plugin for our engineering department and would love some advice on grid to ground conversions between DWGs and ArcGIS Online GIS data. We live in a state that has a scale conversion factor for the xref data(GIS data). Has anyone had any issues with grid to ground conversion? Of course if you converted a GIS to CAD in ArcPro.. you could set your grid to ground tolerance in Pro

Hello Johnny,

ArcGIS for AutoCAD does not have any specific tools to handle ground to grid. Any conversion or offset values would need to be included in a prj file.

You might already be aware, but ArcGIS Pro has a few help documents on this topic:

Introduction to ground to grid correction
Use ground to grid corrections


I would suggest posting an idea on this topic in the AFA Ideas channel.
