Wincan Map and CCTV Survey
Glanville Geospatial's integration of CCTV survey data with topographic data was a pivotal step in enhancing the quality and depth of their drainage assessment within a large multi-discipline project.
By combining these datasets, they were able to create a comprehensive 3D representation of the drainage system, providing a more accurate and detailed understanding of the infrastructure.
Case Study in Detail
The CCTV survey data offered insights into the internal condition of the drainage pipes. This includes identifying blockages, structural defects, sediment build-up, or any other issues affecting the functionality of the system. However, this information alone can lack context without spatial reference.
Integrating this data with topographic survey data, which involves the mapping of the surface features and elevations of the land, allowed Glanville Geospatial to contextualise the CCTV findings within the larger landscape. By understanding the topography, we could assess how the drainage system interacted with the surrounding environment, considering factors like slope, elevation changes, and natural drainage patterns.
Combining the two datasets involved aligning the spatial coordinates of the CCTV survey data with the topographic survey's geographic information system (GIS) framework. This integration process facilitated the creation of a unified 3D model that accurately portrayed the drainage system within its spatial context.
The outcome of this integration was a more comprehensive and informative dataset. Clients and stakeholders could access this information through an interactive web portal, which allowed for user-friendly exploration and analysis of the drainage system. The 3D visualisation provided a clearer understanding of the system's condition, potential problem areas, and how it interacted with the surrounding terrain.
Glanville Geospatial's combination of CCTV survey data with topographic information exemplifies a sophisticated approach to data integration, resulting in a richer understanding of the drainage system's functionality and its relationship with the surrounding landscape.
