Some Autodesk employees (including myself) led by Pete Kelsey were involved in the 3D capture and modeling of the Glen Canyon Dam. The US Bureau of Reclamation and Autodesk just won a USGIF Government Achievement Award.
What an amazing project that took a long time to plan due to the immense scale and then a lot of sweat and CPU cycles to accomplish it.

Glen Canyon Dam Modeling Team, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and Autodesk Inc.
The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and Autodesk Inc. collaborated on the creation of comprehensive 3D models of the Glen Canyon Dam and Powerplant. This 50-year-old national critical infrastructure facility on the Colorado River manages water resources and hydropower production. Using laser scanning and surveying equipment, photogrammetry, unmanned aerial and SONAR vehicles, watercraft, and a helicopter, data was gathered and merged via Autodesk software to create the first comprehensive 3D models of the facility. The models will be used for facility management, design, construction, operation and maintenance, security, GIS, and visualization.
