Many archaeologists spend their entire careers studying one historical site, getting to know it like they know their own house, says Jesse Casana, associate professor of anthropology at Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H.
Advances in architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) technologies typically come from technology providers instead of from practitioners, but regardless of where and when technological innovation occurs, it indelibly influences how AEC work is and will be done.
Face it: sometimes your accuracy just hits the iceberg. We have seen error reports within 0.011 of a foot and we’ve seen them crest near 0.080 of a foot. The key to obtaining LiDAR accuracy is understanding the components.
Evolving technologies and expectations have blurred the traditional distinction between surveying and GIS. As a result, surveyors should expect to be asked to provide more GIS-ready data and GIS professionals should plan to provide positions with higher accuracy than previously required.
