Down to Earth: Land, Sea, and Air – Episode 3
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 third episode of Down to Earth: Land, Sea, and Air by Microdrones, 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.
For the 3rd episode, the Tice Team heads back to their office to process the data collected from all three surveying technologies. Their goal will be to combine the LAS files from the Z boat, the Terrestrial scanner, and the mdLiDAR1000HR so they can build one complete surface model of the entire project for the Mississippi Department of Transportation.
See if they can harness the power of all three technologies only on Down to Earth: Land, Sea, and Air by Microdrones.
