Atlantic’s First Attendance of GIS in the Rockies and AGIC Geospatial Education and Training Symposium

During the week of September 18 – 22, Atlantic will attend both the 2017 GIS in the Rockies (GISITR) as well as the 2017 AGIC Geospatial Education and Training Symposium for the very first time.  Atlantic has significantly increased its geographic expansion activity in the Western United States this past year.  With numerous federal, state, local, tribal and private projects ongoing, the decision to attend these conferences offers Atlantic an opportunity to connect with our existing clients as well as meet prospective clients. “Atlantic’s strategic plan includes geographic expansion into the Western United States.” said Brian Mayfield, Atlantic’s President & COO. “The amount of work we have secured over the past several years throughout the Rockies, Pacific Northwest and Southwestern Regions have provided a great foundation for meeting our growth objectives.” Now that Atlantic has grown into a national service provider, the team is anxious to further develop its network within the Western U.S. geospatial communities through direct, intentional time with other movers and shakers of the industry at next week’s conferences.

Atlantic supports KAFM (Kansas Association for Floodplain Management)

Atlantics’ Jochen Floesser and Kyle Manderson will exhibit at the 2017 Kansas Association for Floodplain Management, Inc. (KAFM) Conference in Lawrence, KS on Sept. 6-7.  Atlantic was contracted by the State of Kansas on behalf of the Kansas Department of Agriculture and Kansas Data Access for professional services related to the development of LiDAR data in November of 2014.  Additional partners included the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service, the U.S. Geological Survey, the Kansas GIS Policy Board, the Kansas Department of Transportation and the Kansas Water Office.  To date, we have acquired and developed nearly 30,000 mi² of USGS QL2 LiDAR data within Kansas and plan to add more to that later this year. The LiDAR data is used for conservation planning, design, research, floodplain mapping, wetlands identification, dam safety assessments, hydrologic modeling, and subsidence monitoring.  At Atlantic, we are continually focused on being better and improving our techniques to ensure our clients are receiving the highest ROI possible. We want to make certain we are serving the State of Kansas and its constituents by helping create solutions that achieve their specific geospatial goals.

Atlantic’s Thoughts on the ILMF (International Lidar Mapping Forum) Conference

By: Brian Mayfield, CP, GISP, SP, GIS, President & Chief Operating Officer

Earlier this year, Sean Higgins (SPAR 3D Editor) published his interview with RIEGL’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Dr. Andrews Ulrich, which focused on the future of aerial Lidar. The interview was conducted during the development of SPAR3D’s “The Future of Aerial LiDAR” report, which is free to download. The interview touched on a few very important topics that will be reviewed at this year’s ILMF conference – most notably, will technologies like Geiger and SPL (Single Photon Lidar) replace conventional technologies.

Like Dr. Ulrich points out, neither Geiger and SPL are new technologies. They have been utilized heavily in parts of the world where vegetation is void and flying at night is ideal due to the threat of enemy combatants. There is no question that the current manufacturers of this technology have advanced it further than anyone to date. But, can this technology meet the requirements of mature Lidar-based programs like FEMA’s RiskMAP, USGS 3DEP and NOAA’s Digital Coast? Of the two technologies, I think […]

Atlantic Employees Earn Remote Pilot Certificates From The FAA

Huntsville, Ala. (November 10, 2016) – Atlantic would like to be the first to recognize the accomplishments of Nate Litter, Blake Spry, and Jeff Hersom for earning their Remote Pilot Certificates from the FAA.

The FAA published its Small UAS (Unmanned Aircraft Systems) Rule (Part 107) on August 29, 2016. This ruling established a remote pilot in command position and stipulates that any person operating a small UAS (under 55 lbs) must either hold a remote pilot certificate with a small UAS rating or be under the direct supervision of a person holding that certificate.

Mr. Litter serves as Atlantic’s Director of Flight Operations and he holds many other FAA certificates including A&P (Airframe & Powerplant). He oversees Atlantic’s team of full-time pilots and manages Atlantic’s fleet of aircraft. Mr. Spry and Mr. Hersom are both Staff Pilots with Atlantic and also hold many other FAA certificates including a CFI (Certified Flight Instructor).

“UAS has been a hot topic in the professional surveying and mapping profession for several years”, said Steve Denney, Atlantic’s CEO and a fellow FAA certified pilot. “We believe that Nathanael, Blake, and Jeff […]
