The purpose of this project was to investigate the potential for collecting and using engineering survey accurate data from a remote controlled (unmanned) platform equipped with a system of advanced survey technologies for hydrographic and bridge scour evaluations. The primary interests in investigating this hydrographic scanning technology is to obtain; a significantly improved representation of the underwater surface as compared to traditional methods, the presence of scour at bridge elements and to minimize the exposure of field surveyors and bridge inspectors to the dangers of working in water, from boats and gathering data from bridges. Additional benefits to explore were cost savings and reducing the time required to gather and produce the subsurface information.
