Regular TUC attendee Paul DiGiacobbe, Principal and Director of Geospatial Services at Maser Consulting, says: “The management classes are a great addition to the program, because you can receive and share information about actual projects and the latest technology. Christian Stevens, Chief of Photogrammetry at WSP USA, has also benefited from TUC: “Most importantly, we get to see the TopoDOT staff in person and enjoy outstanding classes for learning what’s new.”

Nick Salmons from Balfour Beatty, UK is ecstatic about TUC.  “This will be by my 2nd time, the community is what hits you first – the comradery between TopoDOT users and the TopoDOT team is fantastic. Face to face interaction of TUC is very rewarding”

Intensive workshops are planned for both technical and management attendees. The 2019 agenda has detailed information about classes and events, but in summary:

  • The three Technical Trackswill provide hands-on, deep understanding of point-cloud data, enabling attendees to greatly improve their TopoDOT skills for extracting topographies, models and spatial information. There will be new content covering dozens of new tools and workflows, with an emphasis on quality and productivity. Topics will include drone data management as well as feature extractions at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels for roads, rail, bridges, utility poles, power lines and substations.
