Thule Air Force Base, Greenland
We were contracted by the Michael Baker Corporation to use laser scanning combined with conventional survey methods in order to provide complete topographic surveys for three separate projects located at Thule Air Force Base in Pituffik, Greenland for the United State Army Corps of Engineers. The project areas consisted of a 12 acre topo for a proposed dormitory site, an 18 acre topo for a consolidated services building, and a 177 acre survey of the existing air field. We used two Leica 3D laser scanners to collect over 95% of the data needed for the project. After the control, scans, and data was processed, the Great Lakes Geomatics team prepared completed digital topographic drawings along with Leica TruViews for the clients.Some of the challenges that made this project unique were the remote location, 24 hours of daylight, mosquitos, expedited timeline of work, freeze-thaw issues, and lack of existing control.
GREAT LAKES GEOMATICS can support your project with complete land surveying and laser scanning services.
