Past Experience

Highest Railroad in North America

Highest Railroad in North America called on SMA to provide topographic, design and boundary surveys of the track corridor and depot using conventional, UAV and mobile LiDAR scanning techniques. Advanced survey control techniques were made to obtain accurate vertical control due to the 8,000-foot elevation difference in six miles. SMA surveyors worked alongside Swiss rail engineers to fasttrack the design of the project.

Support for the Department of Transportation Projects

SMA supports DOT projects by providing control surveys, location surveys, photogrammetric mapping and right-of-way mapping services. The geomatics team recently completed such services for 62 miles of well-traveled highway in southern New Mexico.
