Photogrammetric Mapping



KMA has photogrammetrists and support staff (CADD specialists and technicians) to complete base mapping for various purposes, from planning/feasibility to final design. In addition, KMA has full-service in-house surveying capabilities to support the mapping process.

Photogrammetric mapping is prepared under the direct supervision of a American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) Certified Photogrammetrist. Our photogrammetrists are familiar with the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) Survey Requirements and the NJDOT Aerial Photogrammetric Mapping Requirements/Guidelines.Mapping

KMA has the capabilities for the different levels of NJDOT Mapping Requirements.

Level One-Aerial photographs useful for project planning

Level Two-Mapping for planning purposes usually at 1″=100′ scale.

Level Three-Mapping for final design at scales of 1″=30′ and 1″=50′.

Level Four-Mapping for final design with supplemental data collected by in-house surveyors.
