Wiser’s design team is rich with sound professionals, experienced in roadway, site, and structural design. Project design directly follows the planning phase of the project. While planning is a two-dimensional design, typically outlining intent but absent a detailed project survey, the design phase provides three dimensional details based on a complete topographic survey. This enables the designer to verify the planning footprint, address environmental considerations and drainage, and provide a detailed plan for project construction.

Wiser is currently one of the most technologically advanced firms in the Southeastern U.S. and works daily to improve that status. Our offerings include mobile and static terrestrial lidar scanning. Mobile lidar allows the capture of very dense data from a vehicle at highway speeds. The result is survey grade roadway data gathered from the safety of a vehicle without impeding traffic. In conjunction with our mobile scanning, we use static laser scanners to capture highly exact survey and imagery data for many of our projects, such as bridges, railroad crossings, other structural roadway elements. This is all in conjunction with our aerial survey and full-service conventional survey capabilities.

In conjunction with our mobile scanning, we use static laser scanners to capture highly exact survey and imagery data for many of our projects, such as bridges, railroad crossings, other structural roadway elements. Our field survey team also includes a full-time underground utility location technician who utilizes tone location equipment and ground penetrating radar (GPR). Our utility locate capabilities allow us to provide a more accurate and detailed picture of the utilities present on a project.

Wiser’s Survey team has been providing services to TDOT and local governments for nearly 25 years. We specialize in transportation mapping using aerial imagery and lidar from manned fixed wing, helicopter, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). This group includes Certified Photogrammetrists (CP), lidar technicians and Part 107 UAV pilots. Our projects range from small area landslides captured with UAV lidar up to statewide orthoimage and base mapping from fixed wing aircraft. Having both aerial and field survey under one roof enables Wiser to integrate these services seamlessly. The efficiency this creates makes a dramatic impact on timelines compared to typical map-then-survey approaches.
