Huntsville, Ala. (June 18, 2015) – Atlantic, a technology-driven mapping company specializing in remote sensing, surveying and consulting services, located in Huntsville, wants to congratulate and recognize the accomplishments of four employees earning professional certifications within the past few months. Alejandro Perdomo recently became an ASPRS Certified Photogrammetrist (CP). Ronny Taylor and Justin Henderson both earned Project Management Professional Certifications (PMP), and Anna Nguyen became an ASPRS Certified Mapping Scientist – Remote Sensing (CMS). “I am extremely proud of all four of them for setting and achieving this important professional goal,” said Brian Mayfield, President and COO of Atlantic. “Over 40% of our staff now have professional certifications and/or state licensure. The dedication of our staff, striving to be their best individually, is a big reason for our success.” About Atlantic Atlantic is a technology-driven remote sensing, surveying and consulting business. Atlantic’s staff of certified professionals, who are known as thought leaders in their field, provide geospatial and consulting solutions to government and private sector clients.

By: Tim Stagg, Vice President Both Helicopter and Mobile LiDAR systems have a niche that they fulfill in high accuracy mapping. However, the biggest advantage to the Atlantic’s Low Level Mapping System or (LLMS) is its high accuracy capabilities coupled with platform cost savings. From my experience managing the transportation sector programs for one of the largest geospatial firms today, I understand that Survey and Design Firms are reaching for the highest accuracy possible from their mapping efforts. Yet the issue with mobile and helicopter LiDAR remains the same – they both have a very high operational cost, making the highest degree of accuracy possible, just out of reach from a budget standpoint. The second largest factor in firm reluctance to pay for this survey technology is that the sensor data is only as good as the base survey ground control. In order to achieve .05’ vertically from a helicopter or even .03’ from a mobile system, the amount of survey control required and the requirement for digital leveling makes this technology in all but the most demanding projects cost prohibitive. Having had the opportunity […]
What is the value of a properly designed and well executed strategy for geospatial technology adoption in a County government? Quite a lot, according to a recent study in Madison County, AL. That’s the conclusion from an in-depth study conducted by Atlantic this year, which assessed and analyzed the current value of geospatial technology implemented throughout the many agencies of the County’s operations. “The results of the study show the strongest support yet for the real value of GIS and remote sensing data to Madison County,” said Brian Mayfield, Atlantic President. “The County now has the information it needs to plan for future growth and serve its constituents better.” The study made clear the tremendous quantitative return on investment for every dollar that Madison County spends on their geospatial programs. It also highlighted the qualitative value, those not measured in dollars, which the County’s agencies are reaping from advancing their workflows through GIS. Some these include more accurate data for decision making, better customer service to the people of Madison County, regulatory compliance, and increased efficiency of current human resources to services a growing population.
