Theme: Geomatic Assessment

Geospatial information systems (GIS) has become an important tool for water and wastewater utilities, providing valuable insight into how we use, manage, and optimize our limited water resources. GIS is a geomatics-based user interface that enables the water industry to analyze large data sets, and can be greatly improved with the use of other geomatics technologies. Unmanned aerial systems (aka drones), aerial and mobile LiDAR, robotics, bathymetry, and laser scanning are survey methods that can accurately collect large amounts of data quickly and safely. This geospatial data can then be classified to serve as the foundation for modeling, capital improvement plans, asset management programs, etc.  In this issue of NC Currents, we will explore how these technologies are currently being used by utilities and their potential for future use.

 

Theme Leaders: Tom Bach, Steve Hilderhoff, and Marianna Boucher
