Orlando February 15, 2021 –
The TopoDOT User Conference (TUC) 2021 will be held as an in-person event on May 11-14, 2021 at the Rosen College of Hospitality and Management in Orlando, FL.
The event will bring together leading industry professionals for in-depth tuition at every level of the TopoDOT experience, enabling delegates to dramatically improve their organizations’ productivity and profitability.
Last year the virtual offering was very successful under the circumstances. This year the TUC technical hands-on training program has been designed as an in-person event to achieve maximum productivity and engagement. Keeping in mind the risks meeting in-person poses, TUC organizers have implemented a safety plan to strive to make the conference a safe place to learn, network and see the latest partner technology and services. The plan includes visual markers for social distancing, extra food safety, fewer available seats and a flexible cancellation policy, among other safety measures. Visit our website for more information on our safety procedure.
TopoDOT is the leading CAD software for extracting high-quality models from point-cloud data gathered using LiDAR hardware. TUC 2021 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 2021:
- Intensive workshops for technical attendees
- Sessions for management
- Systems demonstrations
- Networking and social opportunities.
Registration and breakfast will begin each day at 7:00 am with workshops ending at 5:00 pm. Sessions always sell out rapidly, this year there will be fewer seats to accommodate social distancing procedures. 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 2021 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 and more social distancing.
- 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 agenda will be published in April 2021, 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. This ticket will be offered for both in-person and virtual attendees.

Systems Demonstrations will take place throughout the conference, offering a technology showcase featuring exhibits from leading industry partners, service providers and hardware manufacturers including Trimble, Riegl USA and Leica Geospatial.
Social/networking opportunities are always an important part of the conference. This year both social events will be held in outdoor settings with clear guidance for safe networking. Events include the Welcome Reception commemorating the 10th year anniversary of TopoDOT as well as the ever-popular TopGolf event.
Registration is now open and seats are limited this year. Registration must be completed by midnight on May 10 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 2 and 3 bedroom condos have been reserved at the Vista Cay Resort, just across the street.
