This practice area and technology allows us
to address, in a cost effective way, many complex questions related to
urban systems and operations. For example,
Where are the open spaces and
what are the conditions of the trees and parks?
What are some of the physical
impacts of pollution and emissions?
Where are the most or least
energy efficient buildings?
Where do we have non-conforming
land uses and facilities?
our Urban Design standards being used?
our key assets
are the conditions of some key assets?
There is no shortage of
issues that can be addressed with todayís imaging technology.
Since video and satellite
imagery can be very useful tools in building and maintaining
management systems, there are numerous issues that need to be addressed if
these tools are to be used cost effectively.
Would you get more
benefits from a 3Ē resolution (corrected) satellite image than you
would from a one meter resolution image or from VHS tape of the roadway
right of way as the vehicle traversed the roadway?
images be integrated with the GIS?
realistically use a VHS image to collect asset data? etc. If yes - for
ECHELONíS SKILLS, EXPERIENCE AND APPROACH
Echelon has used virtually all
of the video VHS, satellite, and air photo imaging systems to collect
inventory and maintenance data to build base maps for data collection and to
evaluate assets. We have even integrated various forms of imagery into our
Pocket GIS approach to inventory and asset maintenance. We have learned that these tools can be very cost
effective when used properly and very frustrating and costly when used
We can work with your team to
help to define the specific problems that video and satellite imagery are
to address. We can also conduct the surveys, arrange for the satellite
photos or drive by videos, integrate the results into your GIS so that
when you point to an intersection or roadway section on a GIS map you can see
a video of that area. Or
we can simply provide your staff with the tools and training needed to
produce the videos.
