The best way to handle documents online. With Google Drive you have complete access to an office suite, with a word editor, a spreadsheet and a presentation tool. Using this could instrument allows you to share easily documents with other people, cooperate with them in editing these documents and create PDF. If this is not enough, Google Drive is also a remote storage, with 15GB capability free of charge. It is possible to sync data with your mobile and save the picture you take around.

In civil engineer tasks 2D cad still has a great importance. Together with the well known file format DWG which has become a standard when exchanging information. Well, now Autodesk allows you to draw directly from your browser, without installing anything on your local computer. Similar to Google Drive, you can share drawings, cooperate with other people when creating them and store in a remote space.
