Atlantics’ Jochen Floesser 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.

Please stop by, say hello, and ask us questions! We look forward to seeing you.
