Continental Mapping is a surveying & mapping expert providing a wide range of geospatial products and services to government and the private sector since 1999. Our project examples include millions of square miles of mapping via satellite, 1000s of miles of roadway via mobile lidar, massive boundary surveys, high accuracy mapping via survey-grade mobile lidar, aerial imagery, lidar, and UAS as well as software for the geospatial industry. Throughout it all, a focus on customer service and quality deliverables.
The value of being an officially designated Interstate is significant. Primarily due to the greater allocation of transportation funds, which in turn permits more favorable assignment of asset and service resources such as guard rails and snow plows. Proximity to an interstate highway can also lure large employers who prefer interstate access.
I-694 is an auxiliary beltway that allows I-94 traffic to flow north around the Twin Cities. As a main route for commuters in the northern suburbs, it sees a large amount of freight traffic, making it a priority corridor. The infrastructure is complicated by densely packed communities. The Minnesota Department of Transportation’s (MnDOT) I-694 re-design project was developed to create an asset management plan to track the condition and performance of roadways and bridge along this beltway.
North Dakota has seen a lot of industrial growth in the last decade, putting a strain on existing infrastructure. Continental Mapping was contracted to provide aerial lidar derived mapping of a 16.2-mile section of Route 27 in order to improve the existing roadway surface, making it able to withstand a barrage of heavy truck traffic and improve the route’s overall safety.
Antrim County, MI lies on the northwestern tip of mainland Michigan immediately northeast of Traverse City. Continental Mapping performed countywide lidar processing to support hydrographic modeling for the FEMA Risk Map program.
