Building the Terrain

After 6 long hours of collecting survey data last Thursday, our team went to ESA PWA’s office in San Francisco to upload and convert our data. With Scott’s guidance, Pete successfully imported all of our data points into AutoCAD Civil 3D and started mapping out the creek’s topography. He began by connecting all of the “Top of Bank” (TOP), “Toe of Bank” (TOB), and “Thalweg” (TWG) points to provide preliminary shape to the creek’s structure. Once he completes the 3-dimensional digital map of our site, our team will begin designing solutions for the creek bank.
