USGS National Flood Summary information from 1970-1998

The U.S. Geological Survey has made the National Flood Summary information from 1970-1998, including maps and data, available on the World Wide Web at http://ks.water.usgs.gov/Kansas/floodsummary.  The web site provides the public a tool to compare current or possible flood conditions with past historical flood information by state and year, as to magnitude, cause, loss of life, damage, and cost for this 28-year time period.

Included in the National Flood Summary website is the latest volume of the National Flood Summary series describing significant floods in the U.S. and Puerto Rico from 1994-1998, and is available at http://pubs.water.usgs.gov/sir2005-5194/.

Flood information is also available on WaterWatch, a USGS web site that displays maps, graphs, and tables describing current, recent, and past streamflow conditions for the U.S.  WaterWatch summarizes flow conditions to include recent and historical peaks for rivers and streams throughout the nation and also depicts and quantifies the severity and spatial extent of hydrologic hazards, including floods and droughts.   WaterWatch can be accessed at http://water.usgs.gov/waterwatch.

Aibot X6 uses Leica Nova MultiStation for accurate geospatial data without GNSS

(Norcross, GA /Kassel, Germany, 1 October, 2014) – At this year’s INTERGEO in Berlin, Leica Geosystems and its sister company, Aibotix, will present a solution for accurate positioning of the Aibot X6 without GNSS. The UAV can be tracked accurately with the Leica Nova MultiStation to define the exact position. Using the Aibot X6 together with the Nova MultiStation can inspect top surfaces of aircrafts in hangars, enabling users to rely on its proven functionality without the support of GNSS. The UAV, equipped with Leica Geosystems’ 360° prism, flies over the aircraft and takes high-resolution images of its surface. This solution helps, for example, to ascertainlightning strikes and effectively document […]
