Announcing TopoDOT’s 2020 User Conference – the Global Gathering for Technical Users and Managers

TUC2020Orlando 13 February 2020 – This year, the four-day annual TopoDOT User Conference (TUC) will run from May 5 to 8 at the University of Central Florida’s Rosen College of Hospitality Management on Universal Blvd, Orlando, FL. It will bring together an international community of technical users and management for expert, intensive tuition at every level of TopoDOT experience, enabling delegates to dramatically improve their organizations’ productivity and profitability. The conference also offers multiple opportunities for networking, knowledge-sharing, and seeing the latest partner technology and services.

TopoDOT is the leading CAD software for extracting high-quality models from point-cloud data gathered using LiDAR hardware. TUC 2020 is designed to appeal not only to existing users but also to any organizations considering entering the world of geospatial surveying.

There are four key elements to TUC 2020: intensive workshops for technical attendees; sessions for management; systems demonstrations; and networking/social opportunities. Registration and breakfast will begin each day at 7:00am with workshops ending at 5:00pm. Sessions always sell out rapidly, so early registration is recommended.

The four TUC Technical Tracks will offer a deeper understanding of point-cloud data and improve skills in extracting topographies, 3D models, and spatial information. Delegates can register for fully hands-on workshops in a range of subjects to match their own skill levels, experience and interests. They can choose to work with roads, bridges, tunnels, powerline projects, and more, with data collected using collection platforms including mobile, static, airborne and UAV. NEW for 2020 are:

  • content covering dozens of new TopoDOT tools and workflows
  • new instructors offering greater diversity for different levels of experience
  • an additional computer lab offering seats for even more technical delegates (in response to demand)
  • data-hosting classes geared to collaborative projects and customer communication.

The TUC Management Track, designed specifically for operations managers and business development professionals, is the world’s only event focused exclusively on extracting value from geospatial LiDAR data. The full management programme will be published in March 2020, and will include broader technology overviews with a strong focus on project management, business development, and profitability. By special invitation, industry leaders will share case studies of their field experience of TopoDOT.

Systems Demonstrations will take place throughout the conference, offering a technology showcase featuring exhibits from leading industry partners, service providers and hardware manufacturers.

Social/networking opportunities are always an important part of the conference, and this year will include a Cinco de Mayo Welcome Fiesta as well as the ever-popular TopGolf event.

Registration is now open and must be completed by midnight on 2 May via the TUC website. Helpful registration guidelines are available. TopoDOT can advise on a wide range of nearby accommodation options, but for extra convenience a block of condos has been reserved at the Vista Cay Resort, just across the street.
