There is 4 AutoCAD coordinates system you should know. Absolute coordinate system, Relative Rectangular coordinate system, Relative Polar coordinate system and Interactive system(Direct coordinate system).

## Which type of coordinate system used in AutoCAD?

MicroStation and AutoCAD use **2D and 3D Cartesian coordinate systems** that locate data at fixed coordinates. X-, y-, and z-coordinates are not inherently geographic locations; instead they are locations relative to an arbitrary geometric origin (0,0,0).

## How many types of coordinate systems are there?

Data is defined in both horizontal and vertical coordinate systems. Horizontal coordinate systems locate data across the surface of the earth, and vertical coordinate systems locate the relative height or depth of data. Horizontal coordinate systems can be of **three types**: geographic, projected, or local.

## What are the 5 coordinate systems?

**Independent Latitude, Longitude, Vertical, and Time Axes**. When each of a variable’s spatiotemporal dimensions is a latitude, longitude, vertical, or time dimension, then each axis is identified by a coordinate variable.

## What are the two types of coordinates?

Types of Coordinate Systems – **Cartesian & Polar Coordinate Systems**.

## How do I find my coordinates in CAD?

**To Display the Coordinates of a Point**

- Click Home tab Utilities panel ID Point. Find.
- Click the location that you want to identify. The X,Y,Z coordinate values are displayed at the Command prompt.
