Geospatial Holdings Completes Project for Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority

  • Rating12345

PR – Geospatial Holdings, Inc.  today announced the completion
of a project mapping underground fiber optic conduit for the Santa Clara
Valley Transportation Authority in the City of Milpitas, California
utilizing the Companys proprietary Smart
Probe Technologies.

Mark A. Smith, Geospatials Chief Executive
Officer stated, Geospatials
Smart Probe Mapping Technologies, with the ability to map fiber optic
conduits as small as 1.5 inches in diameter are an important tool to
locate and accurately map underground fiber optic cables. With
transportation and utility right of ways becoming increasingly more
congested, it is almost impossible to safely excavate without knowing
the exact 3-dimensional co-ordinates of all of the utility pipelines and
conduits within the right of way.

About the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority

The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) began as a County
department created by the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors on

transportation system. Until 1995, VTA’s primary responsibility since
its creation was the development, operation and maintenance of the bus

VTA separated from the County of Santa Clara and merged with the regions

responsibility: managing the county’s blueprint to reduce congestion and
improve air quality.

Working under the direction of a 12-member Board of Directors, VTA has a
$363 million annual operating budget (FY’08). VTA’s low-floor bus fleet
serves a 326 square mile urbanized area. The 42.2 mile light rail system
is operated with a fleet of 100 low-floor light rail vehicles. VTA has
approximately 2,100 employees. (www.vta.org).
