With the economy creeping to a halt and everyone shifting to work-at-home and online engagement, there are a lot of unknowns in front of all of us for 2020.
We want to re-assure you that GroundPoint Engineering has been operating fully and succeeding in this “virtual environment” for the past 8 years, and as such we are poised to keep things moving forward even in these difficult and uncertain times. Nearly all of our work is performed remotely and can continue apace, albeit amongst the ongoing distractions we all face with this virus continuing to dominate our lives.
As such, here are some examples of some recently GroundPoint partnership agreements and projects that are setting the pace for the remainder of the year and, with any luck…beyond.
- Hudson River Estuary Program and the NY State Water Resources Institute: to continue working on the Cornell Culvert Modeling Program in support of communities looking to proactively evaluate flood risk and the potential impacts of climate change.
- New York City Department of Environmental Protection Drone Mapping Projects: including monitoring for harmful algal blooms (HAB) and invasive water chestnuts, GroundPoint is partnering with the University of Vermont Spatial Analysis Lab to provide innovative remote sensing and remote water sampling capacity to New York City’s drinking water program.
- City Dronez Veterans and ISA: to support establishing a drone-based geospatial data management program for an international electrical transmission provider, and
- Sanborn Map Company: GroundPoint is a subcontractor on the recently awarded a multi-year contract to support the New York State Orthoimagery and LiDAR Program.
- Surdex Corporation: GroundPoint joined their incumbent team to support the US Army Corps of Engineers St Louis District Mapping Program.
Its exciting. Its humbling. Its also grounding. After all, it’s literally in our name.
