LA DOTD Selects Dewberry for Topographic Mapping Program Support
Dewberry, a privately held professional services firm, has announced that it has been selected by the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LA DOTD) to provide geographic information system (GIS) services in support of its statewide topographic mapping program. The firm will support LA DOTD in its efforts to collect, process, manage, distribute, and leverage data.
As part of the contract, Dewberry will provide assistance in training, collecting, processing, managing, and distributing lidar and photogrammetric data, which will be acquired with LA DOTD equipment; provide oversight for lidar data classification; assist in transforming lidar data into GIS features; and develop program management plans, standard operating procedures, quality assurance/quality control protocols, and update the Louisiana Administrative Code as necessary.
Dewberry Project Manager Ryan Ligon states, “Our team is excited to continue supporting LA DOTD as they seek to elevate their mapping data, as we have for the last five years.”
