The Woolpert team developed condition assessment ratings of the runway and taxiway systems, including pavements, markings, lighting and airfield signs at the Houston Airport System’s (HAS) three airports: IAH, HOU and EFD. At IAH, Woolpert fast-tracked the assessments and minimized impact to airport operations through the use of a mobile mapping system (MMS). Using the MMS to collect runway and taxiway data across approximately 314 lane miles (1,660 miles), Woolpert acquired a rich, 5TB database of over 550,000 high-resolution images and 23 billion LiDAR points.
The data collection area covered approximately 314 line miles (1,660 acres). Over the short, 11-day data collection timespan, Woolpert collected over 5 TB of raw data in the form of 550,000 images and 23 billion LiDAR points. We provided complete electronic data deliverables for integration with the Houston Airport System’s GIS and InforEAM system.
