|Works Like You Think
|We introduce you to the key concepts of TPC: Views™, Traverses™ and Quick View™. Everyone needs to learn these.
|Getting Started with TPC Desktop
|We walk through the things that your really need to know to jump into TPC Desktop and be successful. Join us to see how TPC Desktop can help you let your data do the work for you.
|Working with TPC Desktop or “What Do I Do Now”
|We show you how to start a new project, get your data into it and get started with creating a drawing
Quick View™ & Drawings
|If you draw in TPC like you do in CAD, TPC won’t save you any time so take your CAD hat off – put your TPC hat on.
|We’ll show you how to access TPC’s COGO efficiently. It’s pretty fun!
|Curves and Spirals
|See how easy it is to work with your curves and spirals in TPC Desktop. KIS (Keep It Simple)!
|Alignments: Stations and Offsets
|How to work with your alignments plus other uses for some of the tools.
|Calibrations use Least Squares to fit any coordinate system to another coordinate system. User can then forward/reverse calibrate between the two plus use any existing calibration as the Site Calibration for a survey.
|Offsets & Setbacks
|We take a look at TPC Desktop’s tools for doing offsets and setbacks. We use some tools in unexpected ways; these are some of the screwdrivers in the TPC Desktop toolbox.
|In TPC Desktop, surfaces are wickedly simple. We show you how to create a surface, then improve the surface model with breaklines and a border.
|Using Point Codes in TPC Desktop can really be a time-saver in creating your drawings. See how easy it is to build a code list one job at a time to automate most of your drawing process.
|Phrase Driven Legal Descriptions
|In TPC Desktop, you have complete control over how TPC writes legal descriptions by defining settings and phrases.
|Phrase Driven Legal Descriptions Output
|We take an in-depth look at product of TPC’s Phrase Driven Legal Description writer for all of the tangent, curve and spiral options.
When we introduced background (raster) images in 2004 they caught on right away. Suddenly, clients could see our surveys superimposed right over an image of their property. With such a great visual reference, the survey made sense. They could see the encroachments and easements that were so hard for them to visualize before.
Well Google Earth is the next great visualization tool. Someone said, “It’s like playing with fire, but safer”.
|We show you how to work with ESRI .SHP files along with how the projections and coordinate reference systems work with them and your data.
|CRS Part 1 of 3
|We cast a wide net as we learn the components in TPC’s Coordinate Reference System (CRS) and how they interact in a survey. Traverse PC is just as comfortable working with geodetics as it is with planar computations.
|CRS Part 2 of 3
|We take a deeper dive into Coordinate Reference Systems with 2 case studies.
|CRS Part 3 of 3
|We look at a PLSS case that uses geodetics and State Plane to meet the requirements of true bearing and ground distance.
|We walk through the steps of producing deliverables for a client – ASCII points, Drawing PDFs, CAD, LandXML, Traverse Reports and more.
|We’ll show you how easy it is to produce your drawings using TPC’s proprietary QuickView™ technology.
|We go in deep on working with Traverse PC’s Smart Tables in the Drawing View.
|Text in Drawings
|We show you how to use the various text tools in the Drawing View.
Traverse PC’s drawing templates are dynamic, able to provide any desired page size and orientation because of TPC’s unique Paper Space vs Survey Space.
Learn how to create a drawing template from any existing drawing, then edit the template to provide just what you want moving forward.
Creating and Editing Details and Groups
|We take an in-depth look at the new Details tool in TPC Desktop 2021. It makes it easy and intuitive to create details in your drawings. You can set them to any size and scale as needed and it is easy to edit the resulting group using the new group editing tools.
|Drawing Data Manager
|We show you some of the tools that are available to you in the Drawing Data Manager (DDM) for finding, accessing and modifying all of the objects in your drawing, even if they are hidden or off the screen!
Lots of projects require preliminary planning.
We look at a parking lot design that involves lighting, bio-sales, grading, drainage, pavement, striping and more.
We recreate a CAD plat, checking boundaries, alignments and parcels.
|Using TPC with GPS/GNSS
Add a $2600 GNSS multi-channel receiver to TPC on your laptop and you’ve got a GNSS solution for lots of surveys. We’ll show you how.
|Convert Local to GNSS CRS
We show you how to convert an existing survey from local grid to GNSS CRS so you can do stakeout.
|Local to GNSS CRS
|We’ll keep our survey in local coordinates but work easily with geodetic positions for Google Earth and our GNSS equipment. You’ll also learn how to export linework to GNSS via Shape and DXF files.
