Name: A Winter Wonderland at Thurlow Dam
Location: Tallassee, AL
Maser Consulting was tasked to capture accurate as built information on this remote 1920’s Dam structure in Southern Alabama. Maser Consulting decided upon a data merging solution that incorporated UAS LiDAR and Imagery with Static LiDAR to develop Survey CAD files and a host. Site conditions and irregular structure details required an outside the box solution for data acquisition. Maser Consulting decided upon a data merging solution that utilized our Pulse Aerospace Vapor 55 drone, together with a Riegl VUX LiDAR sensor and a variety of digital imagery sensors, Maser Consulting provided UAS & Static LiDAR mapping, a digital ortho-rectified image, oblique imagery, video and CAD mapping files. This project wasn’t performed during an Alabama snow storm but we edited the gradient to look like the blustery day it was onsite. We chose to highlight this project because it was a great example of merging data from multiple technologies and could not have been more successful, a great reason to celebrate the solstice!
