Our team generated a DTM, rendered 3D graphics, and utilized photogrammetrically and surveyed compiled pipelines and hard copy maps showing the location of wells, pipelines, and fittings for conversion into a digital mapping environment in order to develop the feasibility of automated hydraulic modeling for pipeline design in a dynamic environment. Pipeline and fitting attributes were stored in an Access database and connected to the 3D mapping environment. Through the use of a custom application, the spatial locations of graphic elements and Access attributes were transferred into a specialized, third party hydraulic modeling software product for further analysis. Additional tools for pipeline planning scenarios were created to utilize the DTM.
