Project Period of Performance: 10/2009 – 11/2009

Technology Employed:

  • ESRI ArcGIS ArcView
  • Virtual Geomatics Software
  • LiDAR LAS data

Project Description Vertex Geospatial was hired to create an ESRI Terrain surface using LAS tiles from the Pennsylvania statewide LiDAR collection for Tioga and Lycoming Counties. Existing hydrologic and transportation features (roads & railroads) were incorporated into the terrain surface definition as breaklines. ArcGIS 3D Analyst tools were used to create a bare earth surface model on which proposed natural gas drilling wells and transmission pipelines could be draped.
The deliverables included geometrically correct and dimensionally accurate surface models to support planning, field routing, designing, and construction of a natural gas exploration system in the Marcellus Shale Formation of northern Pennsylvania.
