Tampa Electric (TECO) services the Tampa Bay area’s electricity needs with 4,700 megawatts of generating capacity over 725,000 residential, commercial and industrial customers. Its West Central Florida service area covers 2,000 square miles. Bowman Consulting was contracted to scan sixteen (16) Gate Stations throughout Florida. Utilizing a Leica P20 Scanstation to perform the scans, Bowman is collecting data on the exterior of each gate station, including the collection of photo imagery. This task includes establishing a control network, scanning the gate station areas from multiple locations to obtain overlapping cloud data, registering the scans together using overlapping targets, and importing known coordinates. The photo imagery is being integrated with the point cloud data to prepare a Leica TruView Environment, and to prepare an existing location survey and section views. Bowman is also utilizing the scan data to prepare an existing 3D pipe model of the Gate Station.
