September 7, 2006 -- Vancouver, B.C. - Optimal Geomatics Inc., TSXV: OPG (“Optimal”) a geomatics solutions provider to engineering and geospatial professionals, is pleased to announce the award of a LiDAR survey project valued at US$380 thousand for a new transmission line right of way providing additional interconnectivity between Southern California, Arizona, and the southwestern desert region. This project requires a fast-track approach to data acquisition and processing to deliver a ready-to-design terrain model along with associated topographic mapping information and aerial photography.
The project specifications entail Optimal providing a 3D elevation model complete with height measurements of above ground wires, poles, and vegetation that affect the safe and efficient design of the new line. The end-product will significantly assist in the designing and implementation of a reliable and economically beneficial new transmission line right of way.
Optimal’s Director of Energy, John Leahy, commented, “I believe that the award of this project was, in large part, based on the positive relationship gained in a recent system-wide GIS mapping project for the same client. We hope to expand our offerings to this client and others in the state of California in the future.”
Optimal Geomatics specializes in the science and technology of gathering, analyzing, interpreting, distributing and using geographic information. Optimal applies the disciplines of surveying, mapping, remote sensing, geographic information systems (GIS), and global positioning system (GPS) to provide solutions for engineering and geospatial professionals.
