SURVEYING& MAPPING

The Wood Rodgers full-service surveying and mapping group performs aerial and terrestrial land surveys, control surveys, bathymetric surveys, and High-Definition Surveying (HDS) laser scanning. The group prepares plat and legal descriptions and utility and title ownership maps. Our surveys are performed using traditional surveying equipment, GPS-based equipment, and Unmanned-Aerial Systems (Drones).

TOPOGRAPHIC AND BOUNDARY SURVEYS

Identify and accurately define difficult terrain features using equipment appropriate for the site conditions. Our work products are produced in 3-dimensional surface terrain maps ready for incorporation into the latest design and analysis platforms including AutoCAD 3D, GIS ArcMap, and a full suite of numerical modeling applications.

MAPPING SERVICES

Topographic and boundary mapping, American Land Title Association (ALTA) survey, plats, Records of Survey, parcel maps, final maps, lot line adjustments, condominium maps, and annexation maps.

CONSTRUCTION SURVEYS

Construction staking, quality-assurance surveys, control point establishment, quantities calculations for progress payments.

GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS (GIS)

Enable spatial awareness through the science of location. Spatial analysis, data management, field data collection and integration, application development.

UNMANNED AERIAL SYSTEM (UAS)

UAS work includes both fixed wing and multi-rotor aircraft that can be deployed for site reconnaissance, aerial photography, and topographic surveying and mapping. The ability of an unmanned system to capture aerial imagery and 3D spatial data provides accurate, safe, and economical information in support of engineering analysis and design.

Project Case Study

USACE - SACRAMENTO RIVER BANK PROTECTION PROJECT SURVEYING AND MAPPING

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA

Wood Rodgers was tasked with and performed land surveys and bathymetric surveying in support of the USACE Sacramento River Bank Protection Project. The work included approximately 25 miles of bank area along the Sacramento River and its tributaries and included bathymetric surveys. Notable erosion sites include three along the Pocket/Little Pocket east levees, and two in the area of Pioneer Reservoir and the Sacramento Deep Water Ship Canal lock. Combine land and bathymetric surveys, and survey control into a single DTM to support design of erosion repairs including the placement of rock slope protection, vegetative cover, root balls, and other erosion repair and control measures.
