Illinois Height Modernization Program Sheena K. Beaverson (ISGS) Amy Eller (IDOT)
Illinois Height Modernization Program Year 1: funded $300,000 Year 2: funded $725,000 Year 3: funded $800,000 – Federal appropriations through NGS HM supported by Congressman Johnson, Congressman LaHood, Congressman Shock, Senator Durbin $1.8 million total for Years 1-3
Illinois Height Modernization Program Project Goals – Geodetic Leveling Installed 187 new benchmarks and visited 114 horizontal monuments along 8 level lines to add a total of 301 new benchmark records to the National Spatial Reference System (NSRS). – LiDAR and Derivative Elevation Data Long-term management and distribution of data for 18 Illinois Counties acquired by various agencies. – ILHMP, IDOT, NRCS, USGS, USACE, Illinois Counties – Share information on commercial CORS, RTK
Illinois Height Modernization Program Year 4: funding pending $3.5M – Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), State Planning and Research (SPR) funds through IDOT – Geodetic Leveling Install 500 new benchmarks along 6 level lines. – LiDAR and Derivative Elevation Data Long-term management and distribution of data for 30 additional Illinois Counties acquired by IDOT, FEMA, IDNR. Years 5-8: additional $3.5M annually
Illinois Height Modernization Program Upcoming Projects – LiDAR available for hashed, pink counties. – LiDAR acquisition contracted for light green counties. – LiDAR acquisition possible for gray, brown counties.
