Accurate 3-D geometry of water embankments and their surrounding environments is essential information for checking the height and safety margins of water defenses. FLI-MAP has consistently outperformed any other survey method by generating more data accurately, rapidly, and at lower cost.
Applications of FLI-MAP Data
Rapid checking of levee safety heights and cross-sections
Monitoring of vegetation and obstructions
Inventory and asset mapping
Provide the building blocks for a GIS Database
Fugro has developed a specific Arc View application to work with FLI-MAP data to provide all the tools necessary for storing, viewing, and assessing all relevant levee data. This application is in use by several Waterboards in the Netherlands.
FLI-MAP has worked on levee projects together with fellow Fugro company, Fugro Airborne Services Corp (FAS) of Canada. FAS specialize in airborne geophysics and use its state-of-the-art helicopter electromagnetic (HEM) systems to assess the sub-surface geology in the top 150 meters of the earth. Combined with the FLI-MAP data, this provides a total solution for levee assessment.
Since 1995 FLI-MAP has mapped over 9000 miles of levee infrastructure worldwide.
Internationally, FLI-MAP has been used in more than 20 countries on 6 continents.
