Surveying, Mapping, & Photogrammetry Services

The Big Picture Approach

From initial boundary location to preliminary topographic surveys, to control surveys, to construction surveys and beyond, RICK’s Land Surveying, Mapping, and Photogrammetry Department works seamlessly with our multidisciplinary civil engineering teams and clients to ensure every project goes according to plan. Led by licensed land surveyors with decades of experience, our surveying services tend to the smallest details in order to complete successful projects by ensuring we are inclusively looking at the big picture.

Dedicated Surveying Teams

More than 100 RICK employees are involved in surveying efforts. Our field crews are led by experienced party chiefs. These leaders are trained to perform a multitude of tasks, including initial boundary location, aerial control, accuracy assessment surveys, topographic surveys, site construction staking tasks, and everything through final monumentation.

Surveying Services

RICK's surveying services encompass every necessary function to ensure your projects are ready for the next step. Our surveying services include the following:

Mapping Services

RICK's mapping team examines public survey records and coordinates with the Field Department to determine property boundaries. This information is shared with our engineering design groups to provide information regarding existing boundaries, easements, and other survey records. They prepare and process subdivision maps, serving as a liaison for various agencies. The mapping department partners with field survey crews to provide field data management support for construction surveys. Our mapping services include the following:

Photogrammetry Services

RICK's photogrammetry team serves as an integral part of our preliminary design process. The photogrammetry department uses both high- and low-altitude aerial imagery to compile topographic mapping for a variety of applications, including subdivision design, right-of-way mapping, LiDAR-based mapping, landfill mapping hydrographic surveys, pre- and post-construction mapping, and generation of high-resolution orthophotos. Our photogrammetry services include the following:
