West Virginia Department of Transportation (WVDOT) and Transcend Spatial Solutions completed a pilot project to collect mobile LiDAR (light detection and ranging) for 281 miles of roadway in Huntington, West Virginia. The imagery and LiDAR data were collected in 5 days and processed to point clouds and corresponding video in 40 hours. Features were extracted by bringing the point clouds into InfraWorks software, where the terrain was processed, vertical features were classified, and feature modeling was used to extract features. The extracted features were loaded into a geodatabase and made accessible through WVDOT’s existing straight-line diagramming application called Road Analyzer. Other existing roadway characteristics and Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS)-related attributes are also available through the Road Analyzer interface. This class will outline the project objectives, approach, results, and next steps. We will include a demonstration of the imagery and point cloud viewer, as well as the straight-line diagramming environment. This session features InfraWorks 360 and AutoCAD Civil 3D. AIA Approved
