Drone/UAV and Sonar to 3D Water Capacity Study

The Mapping Network utilized several different technologies to create a 3D model of the land and water topography.  They used a combination of Hypack, RTK GPS, and Odom CV100 Sonar to create the bathymetry.  For land topography The Mapping Network used RTK and UAV technology.  This model was used to calculate a water capacity chart and help meet a federal mandate.

Land and Water Topography of Pipeline in Missouri

The Mapping Network and an engineering firm team up to perform a topographic survey on the land and a hydrographic survey on a portion of the lake where a new gas pipeline would be crossing.  The pipeline is buried  below the lake bottom and knowing the existing bottom of the lake is crucial to engineers placing the pipeline correctly.

Berm Design for Dredge Project

The Mapping Network team created a proposed berm construction plan for a client in Oklahoma. The primary objective of this project was to determine the size and location of the basin to put the dredged material.  The client was looking for the cut and fill slopes, basin depth, capacity interval volumes, and amount of material cut and filled.   The customer will use the information to assist with bids for dredging contractors to remove all the material.

Calculating Sediment Volume in Virginia Lake

Solitude Lake Management, a lake mapping partner with The Mapping Network, completed a bathymetry and sediment survey for a HOA in Virginia.  Current water depths and volume are required for treatment applications and fisheries management.  Sediment samples throughout the lake identify problem areas and quantify the total amount of sediment.

Bathymetry for Ash Pond Dredge Project

The Mapping Network team surveyed two ash ponds for a coal power plant.   The purpose was to quantity and locate ash accumulation in the pond because it needed to be removed per EPA regulations.   By comparing the original bottoms of the ponds with the current bottom depths, a computer model calculated the location and amount of material.  The power company used the information to assist with bids for dredging contractors to remove all the material.

The hydrographic survey included mapping the current bottom elevation of the ponds and also charting the hard bottom of the ponds.  Comparing the two models produces a map showing the location and amount of material has accumulated.

Monitoring Sediment Removal of Dredging Project

The Mapping Network completed a hydrographic survey to show the current dredging status for a reservoir in Iowa.  The survey crew also collected sediment measurements to quantify the amount of soft sediment remaining in the dredge zone.   The Mapping Network generated maps to display the amount and location of material yet to be removed.  This information allows the client and dredge contractor to plan the remaining dredge schedule for the project.

High Resolution Topography and Bathymetry

The Mapping Network utilized sonar for collecting water depths and drone technology to collect elevation data surrounding the pond to create an accurate 3D model.  This model was used to calculate a water capacity chart and help meet a federal mandate.
