SURVEYING & GIS

Solid surveying may be as old as ancient engineering, but geographic information system (GIS) technology is the wave of the future. Robotic systems, data from satellites, and aerial imagery all help our surveyors capture information from every angle using old-fashioned expertise and groundbreaking, modern technology.

 

GIS data is being used by customers all around the globe for a reason. These complex information systems allow developers to gather, manage and analyze multiple types of data to help spot trends and hitherto unknown geographic relationships. Then, these layers of data can be used to reveal information visually with maps and 3D renderings.

 

Modern mapping and data retrieval technology aids every kind of project from spanning highway work to complex cave systems never before seen. Vaughn & Melton's survey and GIS departments work together to accurately map your project's space and help prepare for your project before the heavy equipment arrives.

 

Information gathered from surveying and GIS systems help coordinate construction throughout the life of your project. From modeling to construction staking to project closeout, Vaugn & Melton's surveying and GIS teams keep project costs to a minimum and information access to a maximum.

​ 

Our clients include the Department of Defense, Tennessee Valley Authority, Duke Energy, the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians, Dominion Energy NC, and Departments of Transportation for; Georgia, Kentucky (Transportation Cabinet), North and South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia, just to name a few.
