Continental Mapping is a map consulting services company with several locations around the United States. Their St. Louis location is one of many businesses on Laclede’s Landing. Let’s look at what they provide and how they deliver their services.
What Does Continental Mapping Do?
Continental Mapping provides mapping solutions to Missouri and the entire world. They provide mapping and monitoring services to businesses and government agencies to help them complete a variety of projects. Some of their past projects include:
- Missouri River Aerial Lidar Mapping: After the Missouri River flooded at record levels in 2019, causing $3.4 billion in damage, the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) needed to understand how the river floods. They had Continental Mapping perform aerial lidar mapping on a stretch of the river located in Nebraska. Once the project was completed, USACE had the geospatial information they needed to keep people, animals, and resources safe the next time the Missouri River floods.
- Pennsylvania Turnpike Sign Inventory: The Pennsylvania Turnpike consists of 550 miles of highway where drivers cover 17 million miles per day. The Turnpike has over 45,000 signs, and the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC) is responsible for installing, maintaining, and replacing them. They had previously catalogued the signs by hand, but that system became outdated. Continental Mapping digitally captured and catalogued all the signs’ locations and attributes. Now the PTC has an updated catalog of all the signs along the Turnpike, and they can reference it when necessary.
- Fort Sill Dam Assessment and Soil Erosion Monitoring: USACE needed to assess and map the area around the Upper Canyon Dam northwest of Fort Sill, OK. They reached out to Continental Mapping for an assessment of the dam and for soil erosion monitoring. Continental Mapping performed these services to give USACE a picture of the dam’s current erosion conditions.
Overall, Continental Mapping provides outdoor and indoor mapping and monitoring services to a range of clients. The projects listed here cover large outdoor spaces, but they also map and monitor commercial spaces’ interiors. They draw data from many different sources to provide updated and real-time geospatial data that helps their clients complete projects.
