AUTHORS: David Day, Keystone Aerial Surveys; Josh Persson CP, PPS, GISP WSP, Parsons Brinckerhoff

ABSTRACT: Beginning in 2016, the Delaware River and Bay Authority sought to assess the feasibility of using drone technology to compliment the bridge inspection process. WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff was already contracted to complete the traditional bridge inspection for the Delaware Memorial Bridges and was a working partner with Keystone Aerial Surveys through their Geospatial group. As a cross-disciplinary team, we developed a workflow that combined Keystone’s UAV expertise and WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff’s Geospatial capabilities to provide a user friendly way for bridge inspectors to view imagery captured from a DJI Inspire Pro quadcopter in ESRI’s Drone2Map application. This presentation will cover UAV logistics and permitting, the image acquisition process and importation into Drone2Map.
