Geomatics/surveying

Atkins’ professional surveyors, geomaticists, and skilled technicians serve diverse clients that include state and federal agencies, transportation departments, local governments, and private developers and contractors. When appropriate for a project, our geomaticists can employ high-definition surveying techniques to safely and rapidly collect detailed and accurate data.

Atkins geomaticists employ advanced technologies to gather accurate geospatial data efficiently. This capability enables us to address all project needs, regardless of size, location, complexity, conditions, or time constraints.

We provide comprehensive, full-service support for projects.
