UCSD selected NV5 for a $6 million contract to acquire topographic lidar and multi-spectral imagery covering 13,269 square miles of the North Sierra Mountain Range. This is the first of a three-phase program envisioned by UCSD in support of its ALERTWildfire Program providing geospatial data that will be used to address significant fire threats throughout the state of California.
USGS awarded NV5 a two-year, $7 million contract to acquire and process 16,851 square miles of topographic lidar data in California’s South Sierra Mountain Range in support of the USGS 3D Elevation Program (3DEP).
