IDS GeoRadar is providing the new radar technology for use on Mud Creek, which has been in place for some time, but is now being moved onto the bottom of the new slide area by the large boulder. Cal Trans is leading the nation in the use of this new technology outside the mining industry. It is also being used on Highway 101 at the Horseshoe Slide and art Paul’s Slide.
Yesterday’s San Jose Mercury News reports on this development, but I ran into a member of the IDS team last night at the hotel when I was talking about the slide and showing some of my photographs. He said I seemed to know a lot about it, then told me who he was and a bit of what was going on. A Very fortuitous meeting and he has agreed to send me information about IDS’s participation in this monumental project.
