what we’ve learned

Through the years, we’ve learned a few things, and we’re eager to share that knowledge. We believe that education improves our entire profession. Here, you can learn from highly-skilled geospatial professionals and subject matter experts who are considered thought leaders in their field. Use our search bar or browse our lists of tutorial articles and videos.

Lidar

With 3 Galaxy Prime sensors (and we have already pre-purchased the T-2000 upgrade), including Optech’s G2 duel sled configuration, Atlantic has the right tools, which means we can offer the most efficient solution at the best price.

 

Photogrammetry

Software upgrades, like SimActive’s Correlator 3D bundle, have propelled us to find new solutions for our clients. We can offer accurate data from both fixed-wing and UAS platforms at a lower price point than ever before without sacrificing quality or performance of the data.

GIS

As an ESRI Business Partner, our team of GIS professionals rely heavily on GIS tools to manage and execute many of our complex geospatial workflows.  We are routinely using custom scripting, enterprise databases, and web services to serve our clients.

 

Staffing

Atlantic’s management and HR solutions can help clients quickly identify a gap/need, recruit highly-qualified candidates, and place them on-site with the client at a very low cost.   Our deployments can be just a few weeks or can last years.

Surveying

Survey is at the core of Atlantic’s business. Accurate and precise survey measurements are critical for developing correct and actionable geospatial data. We are consistently looking at the best solutions for our clients, thus, we do not offer a one-size-fits-all approach to surveying.

Quality Assurance / Quality Control

Everything we do, we want it to be right. We want our data to be accepted by our clients, “first time right”.  To meet this goal, we have a team of people dedicated to reviewing all data before it leaves our hands, so you can be assured your project meets every specification.
