Create hundreds of wetland designs for a specific location in less than 30 minutes
It was a given that it would take 10-20 hours for an experienced professional to create a single wetland recommendation. It would take even longer if you needed to request assistance from the engineer in the nearest area office.
With WetlandBuilder, you will be able to show a landowner a dynamic spreadsheet that offers a range of wetlands – and at a glance, the owner can see a variety of dike heights, wetland depths, spillway types 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.
Need visuals to move the decision forward? WetlandBuilder will also produce an aerial photo, complete with cost estimates, that shows the wetland dike and pool depths graphically. (All calculations are based on high-resolution digital elevation models derived from LiDAR data.)
With WetlandBuilder, you can:
- Provide multiple options, including pool size and depth
- Estimate costs with accurate, local prices
- Offer better information for better decisions
- View or print a customizable report
- Increase the likelihood that a wetland will actually be built
- Increase turnaround speed
While WetlandBuilder is not a substitute for an engineering design, it is easy to use, fast and 90%+ accurate. Don’t have any GIS experience? No problem. Within two hours of training, you’ll have planned your first wetland and be looking forward to more.
All calculations are based on LiDAR and use established design standards.
