PALM BEACH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
West Palm Beach, FL
High-definition laser scanning for a runway at the Palm Beach International Airport was provided using a digital terrain model to detect imperfections in its surface. Due to the high volume of airport traffic during daylight hours and for safety, the project was performed at night. The operation required communication with air traffic control and the Department of Homeland Security. The final deliverables included a detailed location survey that depicted all fixed improvements, cracks, and depressed areas in the runway surface, as well as the existing striping on the runway.
