Buy Article:


In 2005 the City of Los Angeles decided to incorporate three dimensional (3D) modeling software into its sewer system design projects. The idea for this modeling application originated in part from the coordination activities with the Los Angeles Region Imagery Acquisition Consortium (LAR-IAC) involving high-resolution terrain and orthophoto imagery for the Los Angeles region. This paper discusses the practical application of the Terrain View 3D model to one of the City's major sewer projects, the Central Outfall Sewer (COS). Methods used to develop the model are described as well as applications of the final model, including lessons learned, during the design phase.
