Watch any demo at your convenience.

Getting Started

Works Like You ThinkWe introduce you to the key concepts of TPC:  Views™, Traverses™ and Quick View™.  Everyone needs to learn these.
SurfacesIn TPC Desktop, surfaces are wickedly simple.  We show you how to create a surface, then improve the surface model with break lines and a border.


Planning WorkflowsWe look at a parking lot design that involves lighting, bio-sales, grading, drainage, pavement, striping and more. 
DeliverablesWe walk through the steps of producing deliverables for a client – ASCII points, Drawing PDFs, CAD, LandXML, Traverse Reports and more.
Plat CheckingWe recreate a CAD plat, checking boundaries, alignments and parcels.
Using COGOWe’ll show you how to access TPC’s COGO efficiently.  It’s pretty fun!

CAD Workflows

CAD Import WorkflowsWalk through common workflows for importing TPC drawings to CAD.
CAD Export WorkflowsWalk through common workflows for exporting TPC drawings to CAD.


Using GPS/GNSS with TPC 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 CRSWe show you how to convert an existing survey from local grid to GNSS CRS so you can do stakeout.
Use Local with GNSS CRSWe’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.

Coordinate Reference Systems (CRS) / Calibrations

CRS Part 1 of 3We 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 3We take a deeper dive into Coordinate Reference Systems with 2 case studies.
CRS Part 3 of 3We look at a PLSS case that uses geodetics and State Plane to meet the requirements of true bearing and ground distance.
CalibrationsCalibrations 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.


DrawingsWe’ll show you how easy it is to produce your drawings using TPC’s proprietary QuickView™ technology.
Quick View™ & DrawingsIf 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.
Smart TablesWe go in deep on working with Traverse PC’s Smart Tables in the Drawing View.
Text in DrawingsWe show you how to use the different text tools in the Drawing View.
Drawing TemplatesTraverse 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 GroupsWe 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 ManagerWe 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!


Curves and SpiralsSee how easy it is to work with your curves and spirals in TPC Desktop.  KIS (Keep It Simple)!
Offsets & SetbacksWe 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.
Alignment Stations and OffsetsHow to work with your alignments plus other uses for some of the tools. 

Point Codes

Point CodesUsing 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.


GIS InterfaceWe show you how to work with ESRI .SHP files along with how the projections and coordinate reference systems work with them and your data.

Goggle Earth

Google EarthSee how to view your survey in Google Earth and Google Earth data in your survey.

Legal Descriptions

Phrase Driven Legal DescriptionsIn TPC Desktop, you have complete control over how TPC writes legal descriptions by defining settings and phrases.
Phrase Driven Legal Descriptions OutputWe take an in-depth look at product of TPC’s Phrase Driven Legal Description writer for all of the tangent, curve and spiral options.
