Locate and plan a pond with multiple options in 20 minutes or less.
Until PondBuilder, even the most seasoned and skilled technician would invest 1-2 days planning either a pond or grade stabilization structure recommendation for a landowner. And that was just for one option.
Imagine being able to show a landowner a dynamic spreadsheet that offers a range of ponds or grade stabilization structures – and at a glance, the owner can see a variety of sizes, depths, and base costs for each. Then, with the click of your mouse, you can sort and filter the choices based on the landowner’s questions, feedback and needs.
Want more than data? PondBuilder will also produce an aerial photo with temporary and permanent pools overlaid as a visual aid. (All calculations are based on high-resolution digital elevation models derived from LiDAR data.)
With PondBuilder, you can:
- Provide multiple options
- Estimate costs with accurate, local prices
- Offer better information for better decisions
- View or print a customizable report
- Increase the likelihood that a pond will actually be built
- Increase turnaround speed
While PondBuilder is not a substitute for an engineering design, it is 90%+ accurate, fast and easy to use. Don’t have any GIS experience? No problem. Within 60 minutes of training, you’ll have planned your first pond and be looking forward to more.
All calculations are based on LiDAR and use established design standards.
