Woodland Park Zoo Receives a Mapping Promotion with Laser Offset Mapping

by TNyland 8. July 2019 10:24

Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, Washington ranks second for exhibition honors by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, opening their 92-acre of impeccable exhibit doors to over 1.3 million guests each year. There is no doubt that Woodland Park Zoo constantly evolves their exhibits to achieve such a high number of honors, and achieving these honor-worthy exhibits is no easy task. Every new exhibit requires modifications to the zoo's infrastructure including possible irrigation valves, water lines, and underground gas line changes.

"With every new exhibit comes changes in how the utilities and infrastructure are laid out," said lead gardener Dann Block.

Previously, Block had to acquire measurements within the exhibit when planning infrastructure changes for a new exhibit, limiting animals to their sleeping quarters which caused disruption to their daily routines.

Among the struggle to minimize disruptions for the zoo’s animals, Block was dealing with outdated maps and blueprints. Using hand drawn 1950s maps, CAD, and as-builts, mixed with several tools used for location intelligence over the years, created a questionable map of the zoo's true infrastructure. Block found himself digging holes only to discover an unexpected object in his path far too often, pursuing Block to create a new, and accurate depiction of the zoo. More...

See What Others Can’t with Laser Offset Mapping at Esri UC 2019

by TNyland 2. July 2019 10:50

The world’s GNSS mapping systems are entering a phase of transformation, indicting a massive paradigm shift within the GIS industry and how surveyors collect field data. Mapping professionals are the explorers, expanders, and connecters of the geospatial terrain; however, when equipped with hardware and software that doesn’t seamlessly work together, a simple task can take hours.

Measurement professionals shouldn’t have to have an extensive toolkit of software and hardware to collect high-accuracy measurements in places that aren’t easily accessible. Instead, measurement professionals deserve an all-in-one solution that limits barriers and allows the user to get the job done, safely.

With the help of intelligent high-tech solutions, we can do more in less time, we can be safer in our environment, and we can achieve better, more accurate results. By cultivating a collaborative environment, Eos®, Esri®, and LTI have developed a new solution that lets you see what others can’t in connectivity-impaired environments. More...
