    Kevin Byrne’s Study: Visualizing a New Rain Garden via Geodesy and Animation, 2009 Kevin Byrne’s Study: Visualizing a New Rain Garden via Geodesy and Animation, 2009 Presentation Transcript

    • Visualizing a New Rain Garden via Geodesy and Animation in Week 7 of Advanced Modeling at St. Mary U. under Mr. John Ebert __________________________________________ Kevin Byrne October 20, 2009  
    • Goal To visualize rain garden planning along with an early phase of installation in the Midland Hills neighborhood of Roseville, MN. (Surveying then geovisualizing the front yard site of one parcel prior to construction can serve as a dramatic before/after portrayal from garden inception to summer 2010 and beyond.)  
    • Minor Watershed, Southern Portion of Rice Creek 20067 20070 20068 20069 20115 20113 20116
    • Walsh Lake Subwatershed WL-7 WL-8 WL-5 WL-9 WL-4 WL-6 WL-1 WL-2 WL-3B WL-3A 0.25 Data Source: Roseville GIS Map: Kevin Byrne Miles
    • Context • The City of Roseville (MN) launched a rain garden program in 2008 with the purpose of mitigating substandard drainage in its Midland Hills neighborhood located in the southwest quadrant of the city. • Cost of full sewer pipe replacement was estimated at $1 million. • City Council instead funded the subsidy of rain gardens atop 15 of its 130 parcels in order to greatly improve infiltration of runoff. • All residents were volunteers and the project was funded by sewer fees collected annually by the city from all of Roseville’s residents. • Roseville’s Department of Engineering and City Council hope the savings will be half the pipe replacement total.  
    • Method 1. Gather .shp assets in order to geovisualize context, with initial foci: minor-, subwater- and sewer-sheds. 2. Do site visits to exemplary Roseville and Arden Hills’ rain gardens. 3. Do a complete and accurate 2155 parcel geodesy: survey streetside of the 2155 parcel with SMU’s Total Station and rec. grade Garmin GPS. 4. Create a custom .xls table showing feature numbers, HR, HD, VD, and elevation attributes, then do spatial-join. Compare this with Garmin GPS. 5. Layer all files in ArcMap (.mxd) and ArcScene (.sxd) then iteratively refine using Spatial Analyst and 3D Analyst extensions. Ponder flood factors. 6. Sequence multiple maps and compare with landscape architect’s plan. 7. Animate with ArcScene, export to video; photodocument the construction.

    • What I learned • Look and feel of a dozen rain gardens in two northern suburban communities • Specific criteria for rain garden planning and architecture • Slope derivation from a DEM applied to my immediate neighborhood (as opposed to someone else’s!) • Landscape architecture of one Roseville parcel (2155 Draper) • Animating in ArcScene via keyframing and scene-managing • “Chats” are important with rg workers and it’s fun to do photo- documentation “in the trenches” of garden installation at 2155  
    • What’s still left to acknowledge and pursue • It’s complicated • Get the lead engineer’s (consultant hired by Roseville) number into your cell phone – so you can stay on her/him! • The onsite job manager is different than the lead engineer, talk to her/him, give her/him and crew early Halloween treats! • ArcScene’s animation menus and routines have some bugs • ESRI’s online course titled Learning ArcGIS 3D Analyst isn’t too expensive (approx. $100) and well worth the expense  
    • Software and Researched Assets • ESRI ArcGIS (ArcMap and ArcScene) • ESRI extensions o Spatial Analyst o 3D Analyst • SMU’s Total Station along with Garmin recreation-grade GPS • Google Earth Pro versions 4.3 and 5.1, PC and Mac • Shapefile assets from MetCouncil and DataDeli • ESRI’s online course titled Learning ArcGIS 3D Analyst
