(Sun Prairie, WI)—February 11th, 2013—Continental Mapping Consultants, Inc. is pleased to announce the successful delivery of a helicopter acquired lidar and orthophoto mapping project to the US Fish & Wildlife Service for the Tualatin National Wildlife Refuge. The project was in support of ongoing inventory and monitoring activities, refuge management, landscape design, hydrogeomorphological assessments, and planned vegetation mapping efforts.
Continental Mapping is developing a series of short videos to showcase our survyeing and mapping solutions in action with a particular emphasis on aerial, mobile and terrestrial lidar. Our goal is to help engineers, planners, designers, architects, archaeologists and others see the ways in which our lidar solutions can be leveraged to improve the design process, increase accuracy where needed, and reduce costs.

Lidar point cloud with 3D extracted features
(Sun Prairie, WI)—November, 2012—Continental Mapping Consultants, Inc. was recently award a high accuracy aerial imagery and lidar acquisition project for the US Fish and Wildlife Service’s Yukon Delta National Wildlife Refuge near Bethel, Alaska.
A note from Continental Mapping President, Dave Hart, CP
If you look at the stack of professional mapping, survey, and GIS publications on your desk, you will rarely find an issue that doesn't highlight a new and different application of lidar. With dozens of sensor configurations and applications, lidar has deservedly become the hottest technology in the survey and mapping profession.
Providing SIM for the Wisconsin DOT
Continental Mapping recently completed a 3D modeling project for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) using terrestrial lidar. In addition to mapping services, Continental Mapping staff worked with WisDOT to develop standards and applications for this new technology and aid in site information modeling (SIM) and other applications.
Continental Mapping is pleased to announce the addition of low-flying helicopter lidar acquisition as a new solution line.
Using a Trimble Harrier Lidar system, Continental Mapping provides a one stop shop
