Tuck Mapping Solutions enjoys a well-earned reputation as an innovator in the geospatial data collection business. The Big Stone Gap, Va., mapping firm was among the first to improve the accuracy of airborne LiDAR by installing the scanner in a helicopter for lower and slower operations. Tuck Mapping also led the industry in co-mounting an aerial camera with a LiDAR in one helicopter for simultaneous capture of imagery and elevation data.
Elkhart General Hospital in northern Indiana completed construction of a new wing less than 10 years ago, but already another addition is in the works. Opened in 2005, the three-story west wing of the 100-year-old structure gave the hospital a much-needed centralization of its oncology services and an expansion of its birthing center.
