Wisconsin Society of Land Surveyors 67th Annual Surveyors’ Institute
Kalahari Resort
Wisconsin Dells, WI
January 29, 2016

Nathan Vaughn, survey transportation manager, Jon Chapman, 3D laser scanning manager, and Drew Miazga, project surveyor/3D laser scanning technician, presented at 2016’s Surveyors’ Institute. Vaughn presented two different sessions: “WisDOT Survey Projects Workshop,” which covered survey workflow updates and gave answers about Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) survey projects from both consultant and WisDOT viewpoints; and “Surveying and Civil 3D for Beginners,” which covered the basics—from field work to the final project—for surveyors learning Civil 3D software.

In the “Lasers and Drones” session, Chapman and Miazga demonstrated how 3D laser scanning for survey-grade reality captures bridges, roads and buildings that can be used in engineering improvement and redevelopment processes. They also discussed the firm’s recent Section 333 Exemption from the Federal Aviation Administration and how the firm is currently using UAV technology.
