Credit: 4 PDH Course Fee: $36.00 33 pages
Providing quality hydrographic data on dredging, navigation, and flood control projects requires careful planning and evaluation of all phases of the process. Those process considerations include:
Basic identification of areas to be surveyed and the conditions under which they will be surveyed, use of in-house hired labor or Architect-Engineer (A-E) service contract forces.
Dredging performance and time constraints
The most appropriate equipment to collect the data, data density requirements, development of a general survey plan and subsequent site specific survey plans
Data processing, data presentation, and data archival and retrieval
Other general factors to be considered might include geodetic survey methods, hydrographic survey methods, computer systems design, acceptable vessel modifications, safe vessel operation, and regional knowledge of survey conditions
Guidance in performing hydrographic surveys for engineering and construction
Planning survey coverage
Data processing, editing, and plotting options
USACE standards for survey coverage, processing, and plotting
