Virtual Spring Regional: Thursday Morning Session Highlights

Please join us on Thursday, June 4th, for the morning session of our WLIA Virtual Spring Regional.  Our welcome, opening remarks, and instructions for interacting with the speakers will take place at 8:50 AM.  If you did not take part in Workshop Wednesday, this will give you an opportunity to get familiar with the platform. 

Our first presenter is Melanie Kohls, an Outreach & GIS Specialist with the State Cartographer’s Office.  She will provide a Culvert Update from (WICDI) the Wisconsin Coastal-Management Data infrastructure as they work towards developing a standard relational database model for collecting, editing, and sharing culvert data among organizations.  Melanie will be accompanied by a panel of Cody Kamorowski of WEM, Kyle Magyera of Wisconsin Wetlands, and Jason Laumann of NWRPC. This presentation will run from 9:00 AM until 10:00 AM.

Our next presentation, by Richard Wohler of GPI Geospatial, Inc., entitled Laser Scanning and 3D Building Information Modeling (BIM) for Airport Design, Construction and Facilities Management Projects, will begin at 10:15 AM and run through 11:15 AM.  Richard will demonstrate the use of high-definition laser scanning to capture detailed building information for 3D BIMs.  He will explore the challenges of collection simultaneous LiDAR and imagery in a vertical structural environment.  This presentation will conclude with an exploration of how the LiDAR data and imagery were used to create an accurate BIM.

The morning session will conclude with Edge Computing and the Human Sensor.  Paul Wickman the Technology Director at RESPEC, will discuss an approach where human sensors collect discrete observations with the Fulcrum field data collection app.  Simultaneously, the device communicates with nearby sensors: Low by Plume Labs measuring air quality, Sensor Lob measuring sound pollution and Campbell Scientific devices monitoring transportation infrastructure.  Analytics are performed on the device, combining human observations and raw sensor data into immediately actionable insights.  He will show how this approach is applied in three real-world scenarios; smart cities and healthy environments, transportation infrastructure and mining operations. This Presentation will run from 11:30 AM until 12:30 PM.
