DAYTON, Ohio - Woolpert announced that the firm has been selected as one of the five prime consultants to begin negotiations for the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Geospatial Product and Service II (GPSC II) five-year, $250 million contract.

As one of the prime consultants under negotiation for the contract, Woolpert will provide photogrammetric mapping to include topographic and orthophoto production; control and cadastral surveys; GIS services; multi-sensor digital aerial acquisition to include multi-spectral, hyper-spectral, LiDAR and Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (IFSAR); and many other forms of digital sensor acquisition technologies.

“There is a broad range of professional geospatial services that can be procured through this vehicle. Woolpert is proud to have assembled an accomplished, reputable team of firms that will be able to provide all of the services required under this contract,” says Jeff Lovin, CP, Woolpert vice president and director of photogrammetry and remote sensing.

USGS’s selection of Woolpert to negotiate as a prime consultant for this contract follows the selection of the firm in 2006 to provide comparable services on the first GPSC contract. The previous contract for $25 million was held by five prime consultants, including Woolpert.

“Woolpert is pleased to be re-selected by the USGS for the GPSC II contract. This will continue a working relationship with the agency that began in the 1990s and has allowed Woolpert the opportunity to work on many significant and unique projects throughout the United States and its territories,” says Lovin.
