Working w/Big Data: Migrating 800M Data Pnts to ESRI's Terrain Dataset
Track: 3D and Lidar Data
Authors: John Peterson, Stephen Brown
This projectís goal was to merge bathymetric and LiDAR elevation data collected for Abiquiu Lake,NM into one container for visualization,analysis and exportation to multiple file types. ESRIís Terrain Dataset provided the necessary functionality for doing this. The workflow for fusing multi-point data sets derived from multi-beam bathymetric collection methods with LiDAR datasets into full volumetric Digital Terrain Models (DTMs) will be described. Volume calculation will also be presented.
