07.18.14 - Western states speeding up transportation projects; future gains rely on long-term certainty

By: Greg Nadeau - www.dot.gov

Earlier this week, while in Albuquerque taking part in the Western Association of State Highway Transportation Officials (WASHTO) 2014 meeting, I had a great opportunity to see firsthand what New Mexico and the 17 other WASHTO member states are doing to get projects done sooner. Their work can be summed up in two words – innovation and investment. Those words are also the cornerstone of FHWA’s “Every Day Counts” (EDC) program to promote state-based project delivery efforts.

Special presentation to AIA Arizona Membership

View the USS Arizona Memorial

aia-nl-0614Recently 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.

Video clips of this amazing presentation can be seen at the following:
