Digital Surveying & Mapping
Surveying and mapping technologies are evolving at a rapid pace. Global Positioning Systems (GPS) software and hardware, reflectorless and robotic total stations, and Geographical Information Systems (GIS) have transformed mapping science. For example, the Geodimeter 600 DR from Trimble/Spectra Precision can record 3-dimensional coordinate data automatically. In fact, traditional surveying methods are being replaced because digital technologies record and process data at lower costs, and data are compliant with photogrammetric and GIS software.
As a result, it is possible to quickly produce highly accurate maps for a range of purposes. These maps can be engineered to retain important visual information -- obtained directly from photographs -- as well as to depict the spatial relationships among objects in the map. Using state-of-the-art digital mapping and CAD software, Ebert and Associates specializes in creating maps to be used as exhibits in legal disputes and can produce maps of any size.
