Mapping the Surface of the Ocean?

It is crucial that we keep accurate maps of the ocean’s shorelines, but when my company got a request to map the ocean’s surface 50 miles out in the Gulf of Mexico, my initial reaction was: Why? Isn’t the ocean just the ocean that far out? There aren’t any geographic features or elevation changes. It’s all just sea water ebbing and flowing, right?

Surveying, Drones, and Danger: Experts say drones carry the promise of keeping the electrical grid safe amid increasingly intense storms

The greater number and intensity of severe storms in the United States has communities rethinking their infrastructure. They’re making streets and parking lots permeable to absorb excess rainfall and rebuilding natural watershed features that help prevent floods.

Electrical Power poles aren’t so power packed after Katrina Hurricane knocked them down with a 40+ tall tidal wave in Waveland (Ironic huh?) Mississippi getting hit with the eye of the storm.

With the help of drones, they’re now also taking a fresh look at their power lines.

NOAA Advances Deep Channel Topobathy Lidar for Groundbreaking Alaska Project

Steep and rugged cliffs, rocky shores, changing turbidity, underwater hazards, and unpredictable weather are some of the extreme challenges of mapping the coastline and waters surrounding Alaska. However, a new topobathymetric lidar project for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) conducted by NV5 Geospatial is leveraging a state-of-the-art combination of advanced remote sensing technologies to deliver new insights on the coastal waters of a dynamic landscape.

MAPPS President’s Message: Faster, Better, Cheaper

We all know that expression. In theory this is the belief and the approach that drives an innovation economy within free, private markets. Ideally these three words are inspirational to all of us within MAPPS as they provide the thrust of purpose for our companies.

Amazon Invests in Velodyne Lidar -

Velodyne Lidar Inc. shares more than doubled after Amazon.com Inc. acquired warrants that could lead to a stake in the auto-sensor maker. Velodyne agreed to issue to Amazon a warrant to acquire more than 39 million shares or almost 16 percent of the company, according to a filing. The warrant shares will vest over time as Amazon makes payments to Velodyne. Lidar is a key technology as many of the world’s leading automakers, tech companies, and startups race to make fully autonomous cars a reality.

Capturing Today’s (and Tomorrow’s) Constellations

Enhancements made to improve the handling of satellite systems (also called constellations) and the increasing number of signals produced by these systems provide a tangible benefit to any solution that requires precise positioning.

It’s Time to Make New Maps Using Landsat 9

Mapmakers rejoice! Landsat 9 images are now available for download. The latest member of the Landsat Program builds upon NASA’s legacy that started in 1972, resulting to the longest continuous Earth imaging program in history.

Landsat’s archive now has over 10 million images of our planet, all freely accessible to the public thanks to the U.S. Geological Survey. The latest Landsat replaces Landsat 7, which was launched in 1999, and will work in tandem with Landsat 8 in capturing the world’s surface every eight days.

Aboard the Landsat 9 satellite are the latest remote sensing instruments, all radiometrically and geometrically superior to those of its predecessors. These sensors are designed to capture better imagery over darker areas (good for monitoring water bodies and forests), as well as collect more accurate surface temperature data (critical in these climate-changing times).

Download Landsat 9 imagery using EarthExplorer and start mapping now!

The Growing Total Station Market -

According to a new research report by Markets and Markets, the global total station market size is estimated to reach $2.2 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 6.1 percent from 2022 to 2027. The growth of the total station market can be attributed to the expanding construction industry, high urbanization rate in developing countries, and growing investments in the development of transportation infrastructure.

The robotic total station market is estimated to exhibit the highest CAGR from 2022 to 2027 due to the growing adoption of these stations attributed to their higher accuracy and advance features as compared to traditional surveying equipment. bit.ly/34XOl0f

Lidar and Surveying: Infrastructure Relies on Surveys

In the past, project teams couldn’t get high-quality, actionable data quickly when performing surveys—there was always a trade-off between time and quality. However, advances in mobile lidar technology are significantly reducing the time it takes to collect data while still meeting strict accuracy requirements and quality standards. Other advantages include improved safety for workers, easy integration with GIS, and comprehensive images and point clouds that support a range of applications, from 3D models to pavement management.

Turning sadness into global action, learn the backstory of why International Surveyors Week is so important to me - any why it should be important to you as a hashtag #surveyor #landsurveying #surveying
What a wonderful post: I am one of those 88 year old surveyor who talks to the trees and birds. the forests and boundary surveys are my home.
Asa retired California Land Surveyor, I receive the XHHT monthly magazine. I am interested in the laws which pertain to the use of UAVs (drones) and the surveyor's right of entry. I experienced an "invasion of privacy" recently by a surveyor who was using a drone for aerial data collection whereby he flew the drone over my property without advance notification. He was working on a proposed cell site next door but flew past an open bathroom window on my house while my wife was taking a bath on a warm summer day. She was somewhat taken by surprise. Has anyone submitted any articles on this subject? I would like to know more about the legal responsibilities associated with the use of UAV or UAS.

I am in need of a user manual for a TOPCON GTS-3D. Not a 3, not a 3B, not a 3C. Original, copy, or scan will be OK. Please reply to ingramATcfwDOTcom
Some cool aerial footage of an Antelope running across our job site. It's part of aerial video we recently collected for an engineering construction project in Utah. See our website for more details. arizonasurveying.com https://youtu.be/CVa40vIFAZE
This was an interesting historic survey we did near Winslow, Arizona. Check it out :-)
FYI - Your Archives Page for Professional Surveyor Magazine expired on June 25th, which may have been on purpose, but it means that those of use using problems from the old "Problem Corner" as teaching aids for our future-surveyor kids, can no longer check the results of our work. Just an FYI. Thanks!
