SGC's Scot Macdonald, PLS and Andrew Strout attended the 2016 Trimble Dimensions User Conference hosted in Las Vegas, Nevada from November 7th to the 9th. Dimensions is Trimble’s “three-day action packed event designed for Trimble users to learn, collaborate, and network with their peers” that brings together 4,400 surveying, construction, utility, GIS, and engineering professionals.
