We combine the environmental and surveying sciences to offer GIS data collection such as flood plain delineation, wildlife population and habitat mapping, native plant inventory mapping, utilities and other pertinent GIS features. We provide precise mapping using state-of-the-art Trimble 5700 series real-time GPS equipment, which provides sub-centimeter accuracy and is a rapid vehicle for data collection.  Using these tools and the expertise of a combined experience of over 80 years, Darling Geomatics can provide an AutoCAD overlay for incorporation into your current GIS database.

G.P.S. / S.I.S.
Darling Geomatics is proud to be a leader in providing state-of-the art Spatial Imagery System (SIS) using the 3D scanning and Trimble GPS surveying systems. The SIS system is capable of providing sub-millimeter accuracy and can be used for virtually all applications. We have been very successful in providing surveying services to municipalities, mining, and construction companies. We will continue to upgrade our equipment to assure our clients that they are receiving the highest level of precision.

With a full service land surveying department, Darling has the ability to collect various types of data that pertain to GIS. We are able compile any terrestrial, and many subterranean features using GPS, 3D scanning, or using traditional surveying techniques. Point, line, and polygon data is easily acquired and rendered in AutoCAD. The data is then exported as a .SHP file so that it can be used with ESRI software

Darling provides surveying and environmental permitting services to Federal, State and local governments, private landowners, utilities, municipalities, mining, and other industries worldwide.
