Celebrating National Surveyors Week at DRMP

March 22nd, 2019


This week, we learned all about the history of surveying, how DRMP jumped to action when natural disasters strike and unique applications of our Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) services.

DRMP’s surveying and mapping service offerings have grown since our founding in 1977. That year, our founding engineers and surveyors came together in a unique way and began paving their own path. As the path continues, it’s important to look at where we’ve been and appreciate where we are headed.

Let’s take a look at the history of surveying and mapping at DRMP.

Then: In 1977, the year of our founding, we began providing civil engineering and surveying services for both land development and private sector projects.

Now:We apply our surveying and mapping resources to support a variety of projects, like transportation, land development, federal and municipal governments.

Then: In 1996, we added Global Positioning System (GPS) equipment to enhance our Surveying and Mapping services.

Now: We’ve added geospatial, terrestrial mobile and static LiDAR services, UAS and static terrestrial LiDAR.

Then: Our Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) services were incorporated in 1998.

Now:Today, we assist engineers and general contractors with preventing unnecessary utility relocations, eliminating unexpected conflicts, enhancing accuracy of project designs and most importantly, increasing safety for clients running the gamut from universities to private companies, as well as the public sector.

Then:In 2013, we performed our first LiDAR project, SR 686 Resurfacing in Largo, FL for FDOT District Seven.

Now: Today, we use Mobile LiDAR, the latest in LiDAR technology, to assist our projects.

Then:Our portfolio of offerings grew in 2014 with the addition of our Geographic Information Systems (GIS) services.

Now:Our GIS team has applied their services to a variety of projects. To view a GIS map developed by our team to showcase their work, click here.

Today, our Surveying and Mapping Division has more than 100 employees and continues to grow. DRMP wouldn’t have experienced its growth without our founders coming together to offer our clients better project outcomes. You can take a look at DRMP’s full history by clicking here.
