Woolpert acquires Geomatics Data Solutions

Dayton, US: Woolpert; a design, geospatial and infrastructure management firm, acquired Geomatics Data Solutions (GDS), an international hydrographic and bathymetric survey firm.
Through this acquisition, Woolpert will expand its aerial and land surveying services to now include hydrographic surveying. GDS will complement Woolpert’s geospatial capabilities with technology and expertise in hydrographic surveying and data processing, which is critical in providing accurate nautical charting and improving marine navigation.
Jeff Lovin, CP, Woolpert vice president and director of photogrammetry and remote sensing, said, “Through this acquisition, federal clients such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and U.S. Geological Survey will be able to obtain coastal and shallow water mapping data through a single resource.” 
GDS co-owners Carol Lockhart and Dushan Arumugam join Woolpert with more than 30 years of combined experience developing spatial workflows and processing marine and terrestrial survey data. Both Lockhart and Arumugam were recent recipients of the LCDR Peter Johnson Best Practices Award, recognizing a major scientific achievement in airborne LiDAR bathymetry and coastal mapping and charting.
