Dudek’s Mapping and Surveying team utilizes advanced terrestrial lidar scanning technology to create detailed scans, drawings, and models of infrastructure that can be utilized for as-built verification, infrastructure assessments, and asset inventories.
Dudek was recognized as a Cornerstone partner at this year’s Esri Partner Conference, honoring the firm’s dedication to advancing geographic information system (GIS) technology and reaching a notable milestone—20 years of collaboration with Esri. Dudek GIS specialists rely on Esri ArcGIS software to enhance many of the firm’s services. We leverage Esri’s industry-leading technology to
Hawaiian Electric Company needed to replace the liner for the retaining basin that surrounds the fuel storage tanks because it had aged and needed to be repaired. Dudek’s mapping and surveying experts used terrestrial lidar to complete a tank farm lidar survey that would enable the creation of a new liner.
What are the current ALTA survey requirements? The Minimum Standard Detail Requirements (ALTA Standards) for American Land Title Association (ALTA)/National Society of Professional Surveyors (NSPS) Land Title Surveys (ALTA survey requirements) were last updated in February of 2021. Often referred to simply as ALTA surveys, these boundary surveys are created according to a set of minimum standards
In post-fire landscapes, unauthorized trail pioneering often occurs when barriers to passage, such as dense native vegetation, have been removed. Unplanned, spontaneous trail establishment is done without consideration of proper trail design, and these activities often happen out of the purview of land managers, in areas where patrolling is infrequent or absent due to limited
Dudek’s Mapping and Surveying team leverages more than 20 years of experience providing survey, permitting, and construction monitoring services. In 2019, we worked with First Solar to create a UAV-based construction monitoring and materials counting survey system. Data is collected using UAVs and analyzed with machine learning technology to provide material counts, before being provided
When a natural disaster strikes, emergency service personnel need to mobilize and deploy support quickly. But before that can happen, they need to understand the extent of the damage on the ground. And to do that, they need eyes in the sky. Dustin Gaessner, Dudek Flight Operations Lead was born and raised on Oahu. He
After launching a successful drone surveying and mapping practice 3 years ago, Dudek’s Mapping and Surveying team faced a new challenge. “We were mobilizing and flying new sites at such a fast pace that the industry-standard drone data processing software platforms couldn’t scale to efficiently keep pace with our growing business,” said Mapping and Surveying
Digital technology has transformed environemental field data collection. Digital methods allow data to be collected more efficiently, more accurately, in greater quantity and processed more quickly than ever before. For Dudek biologists, archaeologists, urban foresters, hydrologists, and other science and engineering professionals that manage projects involving fieldwork, applying technology is a constant challenge as it
Accurate and thorough collection of geographic information system (GIS) datasets is integral to successful project review and permitting. Equally important is submitting datasets with ample detail so they can be easily understood, analyzed, and manipulated by project owners and regulators. Unintelligible data slows permitting Often, regulators receive datasets that make perfect sense to the data
