Merrick & Company Awarded Contract F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyoming, USA

July 25, 2008 -- Aurora, CO USA – Merrick & Company, a world leader in LiDAR, digital ortho imaging, photogrammetry, and geospatial solutions was awarded a contract to provide a Common Installation Picture (CIP) to be used in support of the U.S. Air Force GeoBase program. Deliverables include ½-foot color digital orthophotography, building footprints and LiDAR data to support one-foot contour interval mapping. The project area covers approximately 17 square miles which includes the base and a ½-mile buffer.

In addition to standard day-to-day operations, the geospatial data will be used for heads up digitizing to capture planimetric features such as sidewalks and pavement edges. The data will also be used in Major Accident Response (MAR) exercises such as training first responders to mitigate fuel spills.

Warren Air Force Base is currently the oldest Air Force Base in the country. It was originally a U.S. Cavalry base and was built to protect and provide security for construction workers who built the transcontinental railroad. A number of the buildings are more than 100-years old and are national historic landmarks. The geospatial data will also be used for the historic preservation of these buildings.
