Down to Earth: Land, Sea, and Air – Episode 1
The Pearl River cuts through the heart of Jackson, Mississippi, and also provides drinking water to hundreds of thousands of residents. However, the water source can also pose a threat to the local community when the levels flood. In this episode of Down to Earth: Land, Sea, and Air, a Microdrones podcast, Mississippi D-O-T is relying on Tice Engineering and President of Tice Engineering, Ryan Tice. Tice Engineering will survey 150 acres surrounding the Pearl River to examine flood zones and inspect Bridge scour.
The Tice team will need to scan over and under local infrastructure such as railway bridges and scan under the water bordering the bridge foundations. To get the job done and create a highly detailed 3D surface, Tice will be deploying drone Lidar from the air, terrestrial scanning on the ground, and hydrographic scanning under the water.
In this first episode, the Tice Team begins the survey process to inspect flood zones and Bride scour deploying a Z-Boat to scan under the water and around the bridge abutments, and the mdLiDAR1000HR to begin the scan of the entire project.
See if they can harness the power of all three technologies only on Down to Earth: Land, Sea, and Air, a Microdrones podcast.
