Hello All, Just joined. I am an engineering geologist and I work on dam safety in CA. We have 11 earthen dams, one of which straddles an actively creeping fault (about 1/2 inch / yr). We also have a large facility on an active landslide. So lots to keep me busy. Am in the process of acquiring a drone and sensors (LiDAR, cameras) and processing software and a right sized pc that doesn't keep me waiting for deformation monitoring and geological mapping. Trying to make the right decisions now to hopefully save me headache down the road. I've just joined and I've already gotten some great feedback from members. I started surveying in high school, worked as an underground mine surveyor, a seismic surveyor in Latin America, scuba instructor in the Bahamas and Haiti, geologist for the USGS, geodetic engineer for UNAVCO, several roles for Trimble and SiRF and now engineering geologist. I've got 2.5 kids (ok a dog) and a live in a nice home the bank owns! Thanks!
I'm one of several videographers for the City of Cupertino. We've recently purchased the DJI Inspire 2 with the 4x-something lense (can't justify the higher cost of the 5x-something lense!). I'm studying, off and on, for the test, but I do need to get this so i can fly, fly, and fly some more. I have a question which I'll post, soon. Now that other departments know we have one, they are practically lining up outside our door to suggest shots! Robert
