McMullen Nolan Group for Geographe Bay Coastal Survey

Geographe Bay is approximately 200km south of Perth and is the subject of a multiyear Coastal Hazard Risk Management and Adaption Plan managed by the City of Busselton and in partnership with National Emergency Management Agency. A comprehensive and detailed digital elevation model of the Geographe Bay coastline from Aerial Laser Scanning, Airborne Bathymetry LiDAR, hydrographic multibeam echosounder, plus topographical mapping was captured, to enable numerical modelling for coastal hazard risk management. The Judges said this was a good example of multi-capture survey methodology of the coast and the technical challenges and limitations were clearly identified with contingency solutions detailed.
