BARRIER ISLAND STUDY
Delray Beach, FL
WGI provided a bare-earth reduction elevation dataset within a nine-square mile study area along Delray Beach’s barrier island. Existing Florida Department of Disaster Management aerial LiDAR information was enriched and color-coded using laser scanning processing software and ArcMap’s Spatial Analyst Extension.
This point cloud data was rectified to the National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 for comparison with FEMA flood maps. Low areas were identified and correlated to existing drainage information for planning of future public works improvement projects.
