Enterprise Data for Condition of Navigation Channels
Track: Python for Arcgis
Authors: Anthony Niles
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) maintains over 20,000 miles of navigable waterways through 22 district offices. These channels are routinely surveyed to assess condition, and this condition data is needed by outside users. The eHydro Program, using Python Scripts, was implemented to achieve consistent data structure and availability, without interfering with the local work process. Surveys are processed locally, producing condition reports and plots, and disseminated for outside users.
