Surveying & GIS

For over 50 years, Vaughn & Melton’s surveyors have provided government agencies and commercial organizations critical information gathered from surveying and geographical information systems (GIS) systems to coordinate construction projects. Utilizing modern mapping and data retrieval software and hardware technologies, our survey teams, provide project critical information for a wide variety of projects from spanning highway projects to complex cave mapping.

By combining our years of survey experience with sophisticated GIS that utilize robotic systems, satellite data and aerial imagery, Vaughn & Melton surveyors easily manage, share, and analyze data while minimizing project time and maximizing the access to key information.
