Merrick & Company Awarded LiDAR and Topographic Data Project

  • Rating12345

PR – Merrick & Company, a world leader in LiDAR, digital ortho imaging, photogrammetry, and geospatial solutions was awarded a contract by North Line GIS (Breckenridge, CO) to provide LIDAR, two-foot contours, breaklines, six-inch digital color orthophotography, and a DTM for almost 500 square miles in the central Rocky Mountains of Colorado.


According to Trip McLaughlin of North Line GIS, “Our company brought together 21 entities to form a consortium to obtain highly accurate spatial data in order to reduce acquisition costs.”  Participants include government agencies, metro districts, the EPA, and independent land owners.

Gary Outlaw, Merrick’s Vice President – Business Development, GeoSpatial Solutions states, “By joining together, the cost for the project for the consortium is one-third less than if each entity obtained the data on their own.”

The aerial data acquisition mission began in October 2008 and final delivery of the data products is planned for June 2009.  North Line GIS will also receive a copy of Merrick’s MARS® software, which supports the processing, visualizing, analyzing and managing of the terrain data.
The data will be used by the various entities in GIS applications to support water and sewer planning in growth areas, land management, watershed protection, analysis of canopy density and forest health in pine beetle infested areas, flood mapping, and habitat studies.
