California Shore & Beach Preservation Utilizing ESRI 3D Technology
Track: 3D and Lidar Data
Authors: Kourosh Langari
California relies on beaches for tourism which generates $14 billion in economic activity in the state. Urbanization has drastically reduced the natural flow of sand to the shoreline. URS GIS division have developed fusion work flow for mapping using UAS, terrestrial lidar in addition to NGSS GPS and conventional survey controls to register the point cloud and develop design grade DTM for analysis by engineers and GIS staff. This approach utilizes City Engine Web Scene to display the results.
