Additional Lidar Derivatives to Consider
In many New England states, NV5 Geospatial has been contracted to acquire QL1 or Ql2 Lidar through USGS 3DEP partnerships or direct municipality contracting. With higher resolution imagery and Lidar (QL1) the point clouds can enable the processing of additional derivative options focus on the point cloud data, the surface models and remotely sensed analytics.
This presentation will focus on these Lidar derivatives and how it benefits each municipality and/or agency.

Simple Is Better-Overcoming Resistance to Change
Changing habits in field data collection can be challenging. The presentation will review the trial and error process of implementing a GIS Based tablet application to simplify the workflow of collecting Drainage Structure Invert Data.

While a detailed Survey 123 platform was developed, there was resistance by field staff to utilize the application. The complexity of the field app was reduced to utilize existing manual methods to gain overall acceptance and trust in digital applications.
