NOVATO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- Sep 23, 2013 -- IMSI®/Design, a pioneer in mobile solutions for AEC, launched TurboSite™ Plug-In For Autodesk® AutoCAD®, a free plug-in that lets any AutoCAD user view geolocated video, photos, markup, and text notes taken from the field directly within the AutoCAD application.
Mobile devices have exploded in popularity on job sites. TurboSite, recently awarded 2013 AIA National Convention's "Best of Show," turns mobile devices such as Apple's iPad® or iPhone® into a first-of-its-kind field reporting tool.
No more lugging plans into a building, they're right on your iPad or iPhone. GPS or SPS™ knows where you're at in your plan. At any spot you can create a correctly geolocated GeoMark™ and, using the built-in camera, take as many photos, videos, dictation, and text notes that you want. Redline a drawing with powerful markup, dimension, and inquiry tools, or have a real-time video conference via FaceTime or Skype from directly in your building plan. Immediately share your report electronically with your entire design and construction team at the touch of a button... or instantly print a customized PDF report and distribute hardcopy. Either way, creating a field report has never been so easy.
And now with the launch of TurboSite Plug-In For AutoCAD, all AutoCAD users on a project can -- for the first time -- view geolocated video, photo, markup, and text documentation directly within AutoCAD.
Offered free of charge, the TurboSite Plug-In For AutoCAD provides round-trip field report workflow between the job site and home office and cuts up to 80% of the burden of traditional site inspections, completely automating the field reporting process.

TurboSite Plug-In For AutoCAD is free and available now through the Autodesk Exchange for AutoCAD.
