GeoSpatial Program

The GeoSpatial Program area is responsible for providing statewide photogrammetry services, technical support on survey policies and procedures, and maintaining state of the art surveying equipment.   We manage the statewide on-call Survey contract, Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) contract and provide Survey CADD Support for the Department.
The Photogrammetry section provides aerial mapping and maintains an extensive library of imagery dating back until the 1930’s. The Photogrammetry section utilizes a terrestrial scanner to provide detailed and highly accurate 3D data for areas that may not be accessible.
