Unmanned aircraft systems have the potential to change the way society approaches agriculture, public safety, construction and many other important industries.
Join Darshan Divakaran, UAS Program Engineer, Division of Aviation with North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT), as he discusses how NCDOT uses drones in a variety of applications, including infrastructure inspection, project assessment and documentation, coastal shoreline mapping, disaster response management and monitoring, subaquatic vegetation mapping, traffic counts and monitoring, wetlands delineation and worksite safety analysis.
Mr. Divakaran’s presentation is part of UAV Remote Sensing, May 16th in Washington, D.C.
NCDOT continues to research unique use cases for drones which can improve operations safety and data visualization. NCDOT has started using drones for 3D visualization for project design and public engagement. Using orthophotos and digital surface models we can generate an interactive 3D environment in which it is possible to add any superstructure element such as: roads, railways, buildings, etc. The presentation will discuss in detail few of the NCDOT 3D visualization projects such as 3D Street car and office extension projects.
