Compressor Station 3D Scanning and Modeling


Woolpert used new and previously collected lidar and terrestrial laser scanning data to create 3D models of several gas facilities in Florida. Survey crews employed both above-ground and subsurface scanning and locating technologies to collect accurate 3D datasets of the structures. These scans were then modeled in the office to create visually accurate as-builts. The Woolpert team then compared the new 3D data to the legacy 2D data to identify construction discrepancies. The new 3D models enable the utility to rectify structure records, develop new standards for data collection and recording and eliminate the need for redundant, on-site visits to visualize existing conditions.
