Using TPAS® to Document, Share, Analyze and Report Conditions Data

Learn how TPAS® (the Tablet PC Annotation System) software enables project teams to collect data, analyze findings, share online and create reports.

TPAS® facilitates the direct-to-digital collection of survey data in the field using AutoCAD, streamlining the preparation of reports, cost estimates, and design documents. Users can choose from a standard library of condition annotations, or create custom data capture fields that can easily be applied to the documentation of buildings, infrastructure, and cultural resources. TPAS® is ideal for existing conditions documentation, but its applications are as limitless as your reporting needs.

This webinar will demonstrate the capabilities and newest features of TPAS® 2017, including a download that allows clients to interact with deliverable AutoCAD drawings produced with TPAS®, without needing a full TPAS license. We’ll also showcase the cloud-based web portal for interactive viewing and analysis of project data, drawings, and photographs, and collaboration among multiple project team members.

AutoCAD PDF Layouts Now Retains Layer Information

When developing and sharing TPAS-generated reports, we often create PDF documents to allow report users without AutoCAD to view and print annotated drawings.  Until recently, the process of “printing” an AutoCAD layout to a pdf resulted in a “flat” document.  In other words, all AutoCAD layers were flattened, losing an incredibly powerful interpretation tool in the process.

Not anymore.  We can now create TPAS PDFs that retain the valuable layer information when viewed using Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Pro or higher, so that layers can be toggled on and off directly in the PDF.  An incredibly powerful new feature.
