Down to Earth: Land, Sea, and Air – Episode 2
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 second episode of Down to Earth: Land, Sea, and Air by Microdrones, the Mississippi D-O-T is relying on Tice Engineering and President of Tice Engineering, Ryan Tice, to 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 2nd episode, Terrestrial Scanning is added into the surveying mix to capture points under the bridge as the mdLiDAR1000HR continues to fly above the full site, completing the project. The Tice Team will try to stay out of harm’s way and complete the work in the field.
See if they can harness the power of all three technologies only on Down to Earth: Land, Sea, and Air by Microdrones.
