Dewberry to Provide Enhanced QL1 Lidar for Florida Panhandle

Firm to provide data for U.S. Geological Survey following widespread impacts of Hurricane Michael.

Dewberry, a privately held professional services firm, announced that it has been selected by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to provide updated base elevation models for the panhandle region of Florida, which was heavily impacted by Hurricane Michael in 2018.

The firm has collected data for approximately 8,000 square miles of Florida, including the counties of Washington, Bay, Jackson, Calhoun, Gulf, Gadsden, Liberty, Franklin, Leon, Wakulla, and portions of Walton, Holmes and Jefferson. The data will be processed to quality level 1 (QL1) specification requirements, which is >8 points per square meter, with roughly 5,700 square miles at the Florida enhanced hydrography QL1 specification requirements and the remaining 2,550 square miles at the USGS National Geospatial Program Lidar Base Specification version 2.1.

“We are thrilled to help USGS, partner federal agencies, and the state of Florida work toward achieving their goal of procuring statewide QL1 Lidar coverage with enhanced hydrographic specifications for storm surge modeling,” says Dewberry Project Manager Emily Klipp. “With these data, federal and state officials and safety experts will be better informed when determining climate adaptation strategies.”
