The TBC Community is for customers and end users to collaborate, teach, learn, and encourage one another with new and exciting workflows within TBC. The TBC Community is a professional space and contributors are required to maintain a constructive tone. Any intolerance, personal insults, and negative comments will be flagged and removed with all perpetrators being removed from the group without warning.

If there are TBC bugs or issues that need to be addressed, please first reach out to your local Trimble Authorized Dealer or communicate with a Trimble representative in a private message. 

Thank you for your understanding and support as we all build the TBC Community into a productive environment to learn and contribute to improving TBC’s survey and construction workflows.

    Mobile mapping batch processingLong pre-processing operations like scan generation, classification and colorization can be performed more efficiently in overnight sessions. 

    Simplified point cloud stockpile extractionAutomatically generate stockpile boundaries and calculate volumes without manual interaction.

    Point cloud classification and feature extractionWith the implementation of deep learning capabilities, point cloud classifications are of higher quality and feature extraction has higher accuracy.

    Multi-code point feature specificationsSelectively or automatically assign feature codes during point extraction, allowing flexibility to assign appropriate feature codes to varying extracted features when necessary. 

    Expanded extraction supportAutomatically extract manhole diameters and extract multiple road markings of the same type within an area of interest, increasing speed. 

    Streamline GIS InteroperabilityExchange survey data with ESRI Feature Service or postgres database.

    Expanded third-party UAS support and higher-quality deliverablesSupport any type of drone with the expanded sensor library in addition to access to tools that eliminate bright spots, enhance geometry in shadow areas and more. 

    Improved power, process and speed—Existing workflows across cadastral, mobile mapping and takeoff/mass-haul while building on industry-standard CAD imports and tailored routines for Trimble and third-party field data formats have improved.
