We utilize Geographic Information Systems and traditional surveying methods to verify, improve or clarify existing maps in addition to creating new maps. The most important aspects of mapping is the legibility of the maps, symbol recognition and print quality. We incorporate all three into a well-constructed, intuitive map. We provide mapping services for:

  • Planning and zoning approval

  • Hunt preserves and hunt leases

  • City parks and trails

  • Land use permits

  • Real estate exhibits

  • Geographic Information System update

Geodetic Control Points

With the growing popularity of unmanned aerial vehicles, geodetic control points on the ground have become even more important to ensure the accuracy of aerial mapping. We are experienced in setting GPS control points and performing CEPD updates used to ensure the accuracy of GPS fixed points. We offer a complete ground control package for any aerial vehicle surveys. 

Fire Hydrant Inspection, Alcohol Surveys

We provide field and office support for municipality GIS programs, including the location of fire hydrants, updated paint stripping on intersections, main gas line shut off valves, power poles, electrical boxes and any other main utilities. We also collect latitude and longitude locations, or real world coordinates, for all fire hydrants or major utility structures and classify the hydrants according to their flow ratings and/or colors. We can then import or update the Geographic Information System accordingly, ensuring greater safety for citizens and greater efficiency for the municipality.

Many cities and municipalities require surveys as part of the permitting process to serve or distribute alcohol. We offer dependable and courteous service to those businesses who need a survey for a new license or a renewal.
