This chapter looked for to present the main details on three technologies much used in Urban Engineering: CAD (Computer-Aided Design); GIS (Geographic Information System); and BIM (Building Information Modelling). As it can be seen, each one of them presents specific characteristics and with diverse applications in urban projects, providing better results in relation to the planning, management and maintenance of the systems. In relation to presented software, it is important to note that the authors do not have any connections with the cited companies. The programs were shown only as computational tools that use the presented technologies, and there are many other commercial software and freeware that can be used in works involving CAD, GIS or BIM. Therefore, the work presented here does not represent any intention of marketing for no one of cited software and/or companies.
