Description

In fall 2017, a group of graduate and undergraduate students generated a large, 3D, laser-based, point-cloud model of a selected street intersection (South Main St. and Tillman Rd.) in Statesboro, GA. This was accomplished as a service-learning project for the Blue Mile Group and the City of Statesboro. The purpose of the project was to assist the referred group and city engineers, or their designees, in the redesign of this street segment, as part of the revitalization of Downtown Statesboro. To assure the engineers are receiving an accurate model, a measurement comparison analysis was conducted between the finalized virtual model and actual field distances captured with a more traditional and accurate surveying instrument. The model was also geo-referenced in the Georgia East State Plane Coordinate System. By performing these tasks, the authors fully learned the operation of advanced technology to solve real problems affecting the community at their university town.
