Special presentation to AIA Arizona Membership
View the USS Arizona Memorial
Recently Autodesk Strategic Project Executive Pete Kelsey led a team to conduct the first comprehensive survey of the Arizona Memorial and the USS Arizona in 30 years. Terrestrial and subsea LiDAR, various types of SONAR and photogrammetry were combined for the first time ever to create a highly accurate computer model of the memorial and of the ship. The National Park Service (NPS) had three main concerns for the site those being bio growth, corrosion and oil leakage. Combing the reality capture data types in Autodesk ReCap and Autodesk Infraworks is providing NPS with the ability to monitor change over time and make informed decisions going forward regarding the preservation of the historic site.
AIA AZ, Autodesk and CADsoft Consulting teamed up to offer this presentation over the lunch hour on July 17th to AIA AZ members when Pete Kelsey, a 27 year resident of Arizona, presented the project with 3D computer models, videos and historic photographs.
