| Arc Surveying & Mapping, Inc. was contracted by the Florida Department of Transportation to perform multibeam swatch scour surveys at fifty (50) bridges along the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway in Southeast Florida. The pre-event scour surveys will be used to determine bridge safety in the event of heavy weather (such as hurricanes) cause erosion around support pilings. In addition, Arc laser scanned the above water portions of bridges, merging multibeam and laser scanning data into a 3D model. The combined 3D model includes a viewer which permitted bridge inspectors with minimal computer skills to view conditions at each site.
