|Amkin Dames Point, LLC.
Dames Point\Nichols Creek Topographical
This project was nearly 100 acres of uplands, located in North Jacksonville Florida. We were tasked with performing Topographical, Tree, and Wetland Surveys on the uplands. We had up to three crews on the project which took several weeks to complete. There were lots of open areas, however where areas were wooded, the vegetation was over head high and very thick, slowing progress at times. We were able to use the open area in the center of this project to test conventional methods of reading elevations in comparison to our new Drone (used and built exclusively for Topo). The results were amazing and includes aerial views from only 150’ high with a 24 MP camera.
Keep up with Arc Today to see results of our new Drone System (coming soon).
Kings Bay, Georgia
Arc Surveying & Mapping, Inc. is under contract with AECOM/Versar to provide multibeam swath bathymetry of the Kings Bay Estuary located at Naval Submarine Base, Georgia. The goal of the survey is to provide a model to better understand sediment movements and accumulation. The survey area is approximately 100 square miles and depths range from 50 feet deep at the entrance channel to 2 feet deep in the tributaries. Due to a 6-foot tidal fluctuation, careful planning of survey areas by multibeam sounding methods is necessary. Deeper areas are surveyed during low tide while shallower areas are surveyed at high tide. The above water portions of the estuary are surveyed at low tide using airborne LiDAR. In order to have overlap, connecting the topography and bathymetry, the shoreline bathymetry is collected during high tide cycles. Surveys are performed utilizing Reson 7125 multibeam swath sounders operating at 200 kHz, Applanix POS/MV Wavemasters and Trimble R8 Base Receivers. Data collection, navigation and data processing are accomplished utilizing Hysweep software.
Patton Tully Marine, LLC
The Memphis Witch is working on the Mississippi River near Chester, Illinois supporting Patton Tully Marine, LLC with the construction of a series of river training structures, chevrons, dikes, and z-dikes. Arc is surveying the stone placement after each barge offload and at the end of each day to assist the contractor and meet USACE specifications. Using the onboard RESON Seabat 7125 Multibeam system and Trimble RTK positioning, The Memphis Witch and her crew are well equipped for the task. Arc expects this project to continue through the end of the year and possibly into the new year.

Burgess & Niple / FDOT D2
Arc Surveying & Mapping Inc. has performed hundreds of bridge surveys for the Department of Transportation including emergency scour surveys after Hurricane Matthew ravaged the east coast of Florida during October 2016. In the interest of public safety, FDOT District 2 contracted Arc through Burgess & Niple Engineering to perform bathymetric surveys at various bridges and to report subaqueous bottom changes by providing isopachs that measure the differences between pre and post hurricane surveys. As a result of D2 monitoring scour prone bridges and applying countermeasures, no scour was observed during the recent survey.
