I have had some experience working in GIS software, I'm especially fond of the querying and automating capabilities that GIS offers. Im curious as to whether CAD has something similar. Specifically, I am trying to develop a routine that can query a building plan for intersecting lines, extract coordinates to spreadsheet format, assign attributes to various lines/polylines/drawing elements. Basically GIS type functionality but for buildings. I've looked into dbConnect and AutoLISP but neither seems to offer these capabilities.
