Vertical Mapping Resources, Inc.
yavapai county Flood District
Yavapai County, Arizona, United States
the primary goal of the yavapai county Flood control District mapping project
was to provide the county with accurate two-foot topographic mapping and
high-resolution color digital orthophotography. Vertical Mapping Resources
worked closely with the county to ensure that needs were being met not only
for the Flood Control District, but also for all other entities that would be using
the final products.
The project area mapped to Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
standards consisted of the Verde Valley and Big Bug Creek areas of northern
Arizona. With MicroStation and InRoads, the firm was able to process the
enormous amounts of data to generate two-foot contours on the more than
200-square-mile mountainous area. Using Bentley software saved about 5 to
10 percent of the project’s cost.
