Jon’s career path to Continental Mapping started by happenstance - a common occurrence in the surveying industry. While enrolled in a Criminal Justice program, Jon started toiling as a rodman for summer work. He quickly realized this was his true passion and switched degrees, which an easy transition it was given Jon’s natural investigative mindset.


Jon started in the private sector working for small civil engineering/land surveying firms while finishing his degrees.  After progressing to leadership roles in the consulting world, an opportunity was presented to work for the US Army Corps of Engineers, which he quickly jumped at.  During his time at St. Paul District as the Chief Surveyor he achieved recognition at the local, regional, and national levels.


“Now with Continental Mapping, my passion for leadership and innovative geospatial solutions converge with a company set to accomplish great things.  I am extremely excited for what lies ahead for Continental Mapping and am honored to be a part of it.” -Jon Gustafson


Jon will play a critical role in expanding mobile lidar, hydrographic, SUE and UAS platforms at Continental Mapping.
