Engineering Project Case Studies | Erdman Anthony

GIS and Laser Scanning

Erdman Anthony worked with Village of Royal Palm Beach engineers to develop a plan to survey over 14.5 miles of village-maintained canals in order to evaluate the need to clean and dredge the system. Erdman Anthony collected over 128 cross sections and 167 pipe outfalls during this survey.

The cross sections included locations taken every 5 feet along the canal bottom, and a measurement of the depth of the muck was also obtained. The information was obtained horizontally on the North American Datum of 1983 and vertically on the North American Vertical datum of 1988. Horizontal and vertical data were obtained using RTK GPS methods, with an accuracy of +/- 0.1’.

Final deliverables included a surveyor’s report and CADD-drafted cross sections for the engineers to design upon.
