Carnegie Museum of Art Selects SmartDraw for Gallery Design, Artwork Placement, Network Diagramming

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 15, 2005, the Internet’s #1 provider of diagramming software, announced today that Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh has selected SmartDraw software for gallery layout, network diagramming, and other drawing needs. Founded by the famed Andrew Carnegie in 1895, Carnegie Museum of Art is internationally recognized for its distinguished collection of American and European works, and is arguably the first museum of modern art in the country.

According to William Devlin, Carnegie Museum of Art’s Information Systems Manager, SmartDraw will be used to create virtual gallery layouts for exhibition planning, for network diagramming, and to outline standards for key museum processes.

“In digitizing the museums’ collections, we use SmartDraw to create process flowcharts, documenting the quality control of digital image production, manipulation, and archiving,” said Devlin. “In addition, we use SmartDraw’s diagramming ability to document network design and computer hardware locations.”

SmartDraw features more than 60,000 professionally designed templates, shapes, and symbols that users simply drag and drop onto the page. An easy-to-use space planning tool, SmartDraw allows users to draw floor plans for rooms, facilities, while easily adding elements such as lighting schematics, hundreds of photo-realistic textures, and real images into diagrams.

In addition, SmartDraw includes thousands of symbols and templates for technical diagramming needs such as computer networking. SmartDraw is packed with the latest vendor-specific images for PCs and workstations, servers, hubs, switches, and much more.

Additionally, SmartDraw helps users draw professional flowcharts, org charts, Gantt charts, mechanical and electronic diagrams, floor plans, calendars—and virtually any other drawing or diagram—in just a few minutes. With SmartDraw, even first-time users can deliver eye-catching, effective, and expert results. And SmartDraw’s specialized wizards (such as the new Interior Design Wizard) walk users through selecting a template, editing text and fields, adding graphics, adding photos, all the way through printing.

SmartDraw works hand-in-hand with Microsoft Office® products and many other programs, allowing users to easily copy and paste SmartDraw graphics into documents and presentations.
