R&M collected aerial imagery and LiDAR via UAS to supplement design and ROW surveys in support of engineering design of a realignment of 15 miles of the Sterling Highway. The UAS data was used to provide quality control of ground surveyed data and to build the digital terrain model for the outlying area of the project. The final mapping was a comprehensive design survey with one-foot contour topography, planimetrics, utilities and hydrology surveys.
This project demonstrates R&M’s ability to combine multiple methods of data collection for completing complex surveys, while decreasing costs and increasing the amount of data available for engineering design. The use of UAS allowed our team to efficiently acquire accurate data that would be incredibly costly using other means.
