* Site Design Tips & Tricks – Teaching Corridors & Site Features to Get Along

Have you ever been confused as to how you can model a site that contains roads and site elements? One of the goals of modeling is to have all elements in your design interact with each other as you do your design. In addition to all your modeling elements interacting, the main goal for a site is to balance the earthworks. In this webinar we will cover some basic modeling techniques that help automate the ability to have all these elements “talk to each other”, as well as examine how dynamic balancing of the site can be easily accomplished.

As traditional infrastructure design methods migrate from 2D to 3D modeling, this presentation will review a process designed to integrate 3D design models with 3D existing condition models. There will be focus on the challenges in the practical application of the federated model concept with specific attention to the risk and liability associated with the process. In this presentation the presenter will then define the mission of the geospatial team and how it can be effectively integrated within the iTwin process to overcome these shortcomings. Finally we’ll look at the new TopoShare™ Geospatial Data Catalogue and how it serves a critical role in the execution of a comprehensive process iTwin process. The presenter will discuss other data storage/sharing/viewer products on the market, present their advantages and shortcoming as well as their role in the overall process. The utility of TopoShare™’s unique ability to effectively communicate every instance of geospatial project data across downstream operations will be introduced. This communication makes possible the documentation and maintenance of quality standards of federated reference models in support of the iTwin centered design process.

** New Efficient Solutions for Distribution Powerline Extraction and Utility Pole Survey

Cataloguing Electric and Power Corridors for Transmission, Distribution and Substations with LiDAR scanning has become more efficient in the past few years. However, the Electrical Grid is one of the largest machines on earth and there’s a lot of information that is often missed or not collected at all. In this presentation we aims to improve the quality of the collection of such information with a combination of Mobile LiDAR data and the right extraction tools and methods. This presentation will explore how to collect and label towers, poles, wires, attachment points, clearances and more. The presenter will emphasize how the implementation of Mobile LIDAR into this type of utility survey will add value to current collection processes and/or improve established workflows by extracting only what’s needed, vectorizing poles, wires and attachment points, with a few simple steps; and producing a light-weight ‘geolocated’ deliverable to then export seamlessly to ArcGIS or to other database platforms. This well-defined process will improve the quality of the information extracted without sacrificing schedules.

* Harnessing the Power of OpenRoads Rules and Relationships ‐ What Happens When Things Change?

OpenRoads Designer rules and relationships enable automatic model updating when geometry and corridors change. This is a powerful feature of OpenRoads Designer that ensures the design model is always up-to-date. But what happens when you need to replace a substantial part of the geometry? What if you don’t want a rule created. How do you force a template to start at a physical position even if the up station geometry or stationing changes? During this presentation we will explore the rules and relationships between civil elements to better understand what updates automatically. We will share tips and techniques that affect the rules that are created and how they are evaluated.
