Down to Earth: Point Clouds to Paradise – Episode 1
Caulfield & Wheeler, Inc. is celebrating 40 years of providing professional civil engineering, planning, land surveying, and landscape architecture services and making Southeastern Florida a paradise. They pride themselves on utilizing the most recent technology available on the market, to maintain their competitive edge in order to provide clients with the most proficient and cost-effective designs.
Their latest customer, Avenir, is creating one of the most innovative developments to happen to Palm Beach County in a generation. A 4,752-acre sustainable community located in prestigious Palm Beach Gardens with 3,900 new homes, a resort-style clubhouse, a working farm, dedicated golf cart paths, spacious dog parks, and over 300 acres of lakes and waterways.
This 5-year development project will keep Caulfield and Wheeler busy surveying the site, providing topos and contours as construction progresses. And in order to deliver their surveys in the most efficient manner, they’re deploying the TrueView 615 and processing data in LP360. However, a busy construction site and low-flying planes from a nearby airport will keep the Caulfield and Wheeler team on their guard. See how they navigate these challenges on Down to Earth: Point Clouds to Paradise by Microdrones with Andrew Beckwith, Director of Special Projects & UAS Operations, Jason Cloninger, UAS Pilot and Lidar Technician, both of Caulfield and Wheeler Inc.
