Merrick Offers More Services for the USDA-NRCS

Aurora, Colo., Feb. 7, 2013–Merrick & Company’s  (www.merrick.com) geospatial solutions group is currently providing high-resolution digital elevation data from LiDAR, covering approximately 8,408 square miles of various locations throughout Nebraska.  Work is being done under a contract with Gustin, Cothern & Tucker, Inc. (Niceville, FL), who is the prime consultant, and ultimately the U.S. Department of Agriculture – Natural Resources Conservation Service (USDA-NRCS).

The data will be used by the USDA-NRCS to generate digital elevation models (DEMs) and contours for use in dam safety assessments, engineering design and design reviews, conservation planning, research, delivery, floodplain mapping, and hydrologic modeling utilizing LiDAR technology.  Merrick has supported Nebraska NRCS with similar services since 2008.  Once completed, Merrick will have acquired and processed LiDAR data for Nebraska NRCS totaling nearly 39,000 square miles.
