LiDAR scanning has many applications in the wastewater industry. This innovative and cost-effective scanning method creates a color 3D model that enables verification of existing conditions versus record drawings. It can reduce change orders, confined space entries, design errors, and the need for on-site field verification during design. The presentation will be conducted through a case study of the LiDAR scanning at NapaSAN's Headworks.
- Define what LiDAR is and when it could be applicable for a project.
- Identify the benefits of LiDAR scanning for owners and designers.
- See what a LiDAR scan is and how it has been used successful on other projects.
