Infrastructure projects can benefit significantly from the use of technology and geospatial data. I will discuss emerging geospatial data technologies and provide specific examples on how project teams can measure, verify, and document design and construction project quantities. We will discuss some of the latest advancements in using 3D design data and reality modeling during construction, in conjunction with field measurements from UAS and conventional survey tools that help project teams produce deliverable results.
