GOOD DATA IN, GOOD DATA OUT

Quality engineering begins with the precise and accurate location of existing natural and manmade features.  S+G Geomatics division combines decades of professional experience with cutting edge technology to provide our engineers and clients a true representation of the conditions on the ground.  A deep understanding of the interplay between America’s horizontal and vertical datums and the newest Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) technologies reinforces S+G Geomatics’ ability to keep projects on track and on budget.

Quality surface-modeling and accurate site benchmarks allow for seamless machine control operations.  S+G professionals use Trimble Business Center and other industry leading software and equipment to streamline the design to build process.  With the ability to mobilize rapidly, our Geomatics team can provide timely as-built, volumetric, monitoring, and many other surveys to keep construction projects moving.

Quality and Responsiveness, S+G Geomatics pays attention to the details and keeps your projects moving in the right direction.

S+G Geomatics can provide a full suite of land surveying tasks including:

    • Topographic
    • As-Builts
    • UAS Topography
    • Construction Staking
    • Surface Modeling
    • Building/Structural Monitoring
    • Volumetric
    • Site Plan
    • GIS Mapping
    • Boundary/ALTA
    • Subdivision
    • Asset Inventory

S+G can provide detailed monitoring surveys for our clients.  Our Geomatics department understands that survey monitoring of buildings, retaining walls, soil subsidence etc., begins with a thorough understanding of the necessary precision, the duration of monitoring event, and specific site conditions.  Our Geomatics team has experience with implementing terrestrial scanning, traditional surveying and leveling, and advanced statistical analysis to provide the highest quality to clients.  Monitoring reports are tailored to the client’s needs with a focus on providing the information pertinent to them in a clear and concise manner.

Boundary and ALTA/NSPS surveys reflect the many years of accumulated research experience within our Geomatics division.  We understand the importance of communication during the planning and design phases of land development.  Starting with an analysis of title documents and historical land uses, we will take the necessary steps to identify latent issues and prevent them from evolving into costly problems.

UAS (UNMANNED AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS)

CUTTING EDGE AERIAL LIDAR AND PHOTOGRAMMETRY

Accurate measurements gathered with amazing efficiency. S+G’s group of licensed unmanned aircraft pilots make great use of available and emerging technologies, including tree-canopy penetrating LiDAR. 

Our cross trained team of professionals have put in the time and energy necessary to develop a strong working knowledge of the capabilities of these highly technical measurement tools. Through rigorous checks and ground truthing, S+G gets it right, even in the more challenging areas such as small streams and steep slopes. Our in-house spatial analysts quickly turn hundreds of gigabytes of data into workable drawings with stunning imagery.

Using an internal pool of FAA Certified Remote Pilots, our drones can be deployed at any time to serve a wide variety of project needs.

UAS technology provides tangible benefit to our clients, as it can be integrated directly into workflows to provide targeted, real-time data collection and output. Site conditions can be more accurately and affordably assessed using photogrammetric products that provide up-to-date aerial imagery for basemaps, visual review and documentation. LiDAR sensors can be leveraged to capture contour lines, 3D surface models, and aid in performing volumetric calculations. Even when conditions are potentially unsafe, drones can also be used as remote inspection tools, documenting site or infrastructure conditions using high resolution photography and videography while providing an added level of safety for field crews.

Our diverse fleet of drones leverages the latest industry-standard aerial survey technology, pulling from both traditional and cutting-edge survey methods to deliver holistic data products. Whether using the DJI Phantom Pro v2 to perform photogrammetric reconstruction of aerial imagery, or the latest DJI Matrice 350 RTK coupled with the power of LiDAR to capture high-resolution terrain models rendered in real time, our nimble team of UAS pilots in both NC and SC can be deployed with the best technology tailored to specific project needs.

GIS (GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS)

BRINGING PROJECT DATA TO LIFE

For decades, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology has played a significant role in infrastructure and environmental management, working hand in hand with CAD and traditional land surveying techniques to capture, catalog, and visualize spatial data. Yet only very recently has GIS garnered mainstream attention as a powerful information tool to provide much more than cartographic products to its end-users.

Leveraging the benefits of cloud computing, interactive web applications, mobile data capture technologies, and smart device proliferation, GIS has become a ubiquitous technology proving integral to countless industries in both the public and private sector.

At S+G, we use GIS technology to bring static project data to life, empowering you to make more informed decisions in real-time. By integrating the latest GIS and mobile data technologies with existing CAD workflows, we create dynamic project solutions for enhanced data management, mapping, and analysis.

“At S+G, we use GIS technology to bring static project data to life, empowering you to make more informed decisions in real-time.”

From Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) to advanced geoprocessing tools, we unleash the power of spatial analysis to deliver smarter data and critical project insight. Interactive webmaps and virtual site tours improve project collaboration and decision-making for more effective management of your infrastructure, project teams, budget and resources.

Geospatial data workflows give us the ability to leverage high-accuracy LiDAR and photogrammetry equipment to generate imagery, terrain surfaces, and vector products that can supplement and enhance publicly-available GIS data.
