We offer reconnaissance surveys providing data that enables design engineers to study the advantages and disadvantages of a variety of routes and then to determine which routes are feasible. You begin by finding all existing maps that show the area to be reconnoitered.

In reconnaissance, studying existing maps is as important as the actual fieldwork. Studying these maps and aerial photographs, if any exist, will often eliminate an unfavorable route from further consideration, thus saving your reconnaissance field party much time and effort. Contour maps give essential information about the relief of an area. Aerial photographs provide a quick means for preparing valuable sketches and overlays for your field party. Direct aerial observation gives you an overview of an area that speeds up later ground reconnaissance if the region has already been mapped.
