HJW GeoSpatial to produce LiDAR digital terrain model and orthophotography of San Mateo County, CA

Oakland, CA, November 14, 2005 – HJW GeoSpatial (HJW), Inc., has been awarded a contract to produce a LiDAR digital terrain model and color orthophotos for the County of San Mateo, CA. The project is being funded by the County of San Mateo, the U.S. Geological Survey, the San Mateo County Transit District and the City/County Association of Governments of San Mateo County.

LiDAR data will be acquired for the entire county, and used to generate a digital terrain model to support orthophoto production. HJW will classify and filter the LiDAR data in order to achieve a bare-Earth terrain model, which will be accurate enough to generate 2’ contours. In addition to using automated LiDAR classification procedures, HJW will employ photogrammetric methods to ensure accurate point classification. Orthophotography as well as stereo-model analysis will be used to support HJW’s quality control procedures.

HJW will acquire roughly 500 square miles of color photography at two photo scales for the production of orthophotos with pixel sizes of ¼’ and ½’. The orthophotography will meet National Map Accuracy Standards for 1”=100’ and 1”=200’ mapping. The orthophotography will be mosaicked and delivered in a pre-defined tiling scheme.

Prior to this project, in 2004, HJW produced 1”= 100’ color orthophotos for the City of San Mateo, and in 1997, HJW produced orthophotography for the entire County.
