Dewberry to update high-res LiDAR for Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands

13 June 2018

Dewberry, a privately held professional services firm, has been selected by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to collect and process Quality level 1 topographic LiDAR data of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands to identify the impact of Category 5 Hurricane Maria, which struck the territories in September 2017.

The firm’s subconsultant, Leading Edge Geomatics, will be performing the LiDAR data acquisition using two RIEGL VQ-1560i dual channel waveform processing airborne LiDAR mapping systems. Dewberry will perform all ground surveys and its geospatial team will complete the processing and creation of digital elevation models and other ancillary products.
