Introduction to Unmanned Airborne Systems (UAS) Mapping

This full day course starts with a brief overview of the UAS mapping technology and its rules and regulations. The principles of UAS data collection are explained along with hands-on practice in flight planning and execution. The main focus of this course is on processing the collected imagery using structure from motion technique and deriving orthophoto mosaics and ultra-high resolution digital terrain models (DTMs) and digital surface models (DSMs) of land surface, vegetation and structures. More advanced topics include multitemporal 3D data analysis, fusion with lidar data and 3D visualization with applications in transportation engineering. During this course, students will learn how to use 3DR Tower, Agisoft Photoscan and QGIS to, among other things:

  • Flight design, planning, and execution
  • Align collected aerial images
  • Derive high-spatial resolution orthophoto mosaics and DTMs and DSMs
  • Use derived products to conduct spatial analysis

Transportation Asset Management

The large inventory of aging roadways and bridges, the dramatic fluctuations in construction costs, the retirement of experienced transportation workers, and the increased competition for available funding have amplified the challenges transportation agencies face as they manage their highway systems. Over the last decade, a number of state highway agencies have established Transportation Asset Management (TAM) programs to help document asset conditions, to allocate funding, and to determine the most effective use of available funds. TAM programs provide the processes and tools necessary to help transportation leaders make informed project decisions that can improve the overall operational efficiency of the organization. This NHI course covers the basic tenets of an asset management program, how it is useful and looks at pavement preservation strategies.

Introduction to Online Mapping

Online mapping or Web mapping is a process of compiling and delivering geo-spatial data in the form of an interactive web application. Online mapping services allow users to interact with geographic data, query data, finding landmarks, obtaining addresses, etc. This course provides information on current and emerging online mapping technologies and capabilities. The emphasis of this class will be hands-on experience in the following aspects of Internet-enabled mapping.

Americans with Disabilities Act Compliance

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements have been in effect since 1990, yet state and local jurisdictions all across the country have dealt with severe penalties from the U.S. Department of Justice for failure to provide the required facilities. This class identifies the laws that involve ADA required facilities associated with public rights of way. Also included are discussions about the entire pedestrian facility, including sidewalks and curb ramps. Requirements for completing and maintaining a transition plan are also included. A person doesn’t have to look very hard to find newly constructed pedestrian facilities that do not meet ADA requirements. Doing it right the first time is repeatedly stressed throughout this class.

Roadway Drainage

This course will discuss basic road design characteristics as they relate to drainage, soil characteristics, basic hydrology (drainage areas, runoff factors, and rainfall intensity), hydraulics (culvert materials, sizing culvert, sizing ditches), and placement of culverts, culvert end treatments, and culvert and ditch maintenance. The participants will have an understanding of the makeup of roadway drainage and the qualities that increase the service life of the road. This course is set up to create discussion among participants, to include local conditions, concerns and techniques. While this course does not provide design criteria for engineers, it is intended to cover the needs of all people responsible for roads, from managers to operators.

Roadway Safety 365

To help reduce the number and severity of crashes on local and rural roadways, the FHWA Office of Safety has developed this one day Road Safety 365 workshop as part of a package of focused products for local and rural governments. Road Safety 365 is designed to provide local and rural agencies with practical and effective ways to incorporate safety solutions into daily activities as well as the project development process.
