ToPa 3D provides mapping services

that inform all parties involved on a project what is happening from an aerial perspective in the area or on the project site.

Our team has provided maps for timber companies to evaluate forest damage; to special interest groups to understand regional sustainability and impact studies; to construction firms to plan logistic routes and monitor overall project progress, to archeologists for large-scale site studies in limited access areas, and many more applications to include but not limited to: landslide and rockfall monitoring, quarry and stockpile volume calculations, and topographic surface analysis.

We love the outdoors and have staff trained in geology, geography, photogrammetry, remote sensing, thermography, GIS, and surveying, bringing to the table a solid team to take on your Geospatial project.

Getting a clear aerial picture of a large area for a project can inform all project stakeholders on what the lay of the land is, how logistics may be impacted by travel routes, where areas of concern may be located, to name a few.
 

Coordinate

Mapping a large area involves coordinating with often multiple entities that have a stake in the properties included in the project. Some of these properties may be impacted by the overall mapping project outcome and ToPa 3D understands that Geospatial projects are larger than any one client in most cases.

Map

Creating maps from the ground with scanners or from the skies with aircrafts carrying sensor payloads for Geospatial Mapping begins with expertise and a thorough understanding of how maps are made, choosing the right equipment, and having the right professionals on the team. Our team will ensure that all the boxes are checked and that the map is created right the first time through our extensive experience with the science of photogrammetry.

Analyze

Once the maps are made, our team can assist with analysis of the data collected by providing GIS overlays from a variety of datasets, geolocate CAD files, point files, and other spatial data in a robust number of coordinate systems to further inform the Geospatial area of interest. Our ToPa 3D team is adept at transforming data into any coordinate system that a project needs, relieving the common Geospatial project issues of data misalignment and confusion around having to work with multiple coordinate systems and projections
Case study

sUAS Cable Pull Demonstration

With the vision of Dave Skala, CEO of Ad Hoc Robotics and our team at ToPa 3D, we performed a cable pull demo with a DJI s800 UAV. Using nylon rope, the Ad Hoc team pulled nearly 1000 feet and released it successfully on three practice runs during our demonstration. This maneuver was to demonstrate that an sUAS could in fact pull leader line as a manned helicopter would for transmission cable pulling missions across long distances and in treacherous terrain.
