Using 3D GIS & LiDAR to identify Obstructions & Site Airfield Prj’s.
Track: 3D and Lidar Data
Authors: Jason Sokol, Dan Arellano
URS is using 3D tools inside of ArcGIS to build 3D imaginary surfaces for airfield analysis. The process involves collecting LiDAR data for the study area and comparing it to the imaginary surfaces to identify obstructions. The results of this analysis are viewed in ArcScene. ArcScene is also being used as a planning tool to site new projects in the airfield vicinity to make sure they do not create a new obstruction to the imaginary surfaces.
