Description: Technical Note
Purpose: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) conducts extensive hydrographic surveying in support of the planning, design, construction, maintenance, and operation of Federal coastal projects. The USACE surveying program covers a broad range of project types including storm damage reduction, navigation, shore protection, and emergency response operations. Most USACE coastal surveys are performed by small launch-type vessels with acoustic fathometers. The Scanning Hydrographic Operational Airborne Lidar Survey (SHOALS) system was developed to achieve an orders-of-magnitude increase in survey speed while collecting densely spaced high-resolution data, and SHOALS has demonstrated its ability to achieve those goals. The information presented here is intended to provide essential knowledge about this new technology and its applications.
