Gap Analysis Tool for Tactical Bridges

GIS Profile Tool

Python Gap Locator Tool

Gap-crossing is one of the largest concerns for military transportation.  FHS has developed tools to analyze route corridors for potential wet-gaps.  When these wet-gaps are determined the program estimates the width of bridge that would be needed to cross each gap.  By analyzing an entire route corridor the number and size of bridges needed to go from Point A to Point B can be determined.
