PRESS RELEASE


Weakley County Emergency Management GIS Contributions lead to
Award-Winning LiDAR Project

The Atlantic Group out of Huntsville, AL, was honored for the second year in a row for their LiDAR project, with the help of Weakley County's GIS Team.
[The Atlantic Group took the Small Projects award for their LiDAR data processing project “Helping Weakley County, Tennessee’s Tactical GIS Team Maximize Their LiDAR ROI”.]

During fall 2013, Tennessee’s Weakley County 911 Emergency Management contracted with Atlantic to perform classification and extraction of building footprints from the new USDA-NRCS LiDAR point data. The primary challenge associated with this critical project was to create 3D data for roughly 25,000 buildings over a 5,500-square-mile area within a short amount of time and on a severely constrained budget. Toward meeting this challenge, Atlantic created a customized algorithmic LiDAR classification and extraction scheme that served to greatly reduce the manual effort typically associated with similar efforts.

“This project showcases how private enterprise can deliver cost-effective solutions to complex geospatial challenges,” said Brian Mayfield, Atlantic President and Chief Operating Officer, who accepted the award on behalf of Atlantic on Sept. 25.

“The building footprints from this innovative process have the detail, sharpness and appearance of photogrammetrically-derived features,” said Kimberley Denney, Atlantic Associate Vice President. “Working together with the Weakley County 911 Director and GIS Specialist, we provided critical intelligence for both the County’s 911 and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) operations. The entire Atlantic team can be proud of their contributions on this important project that has been recognized by this prestigious award.”

“We are extremely thankful for all the effort put forth by the Atlantic team to complete this project under such unique circumstances,” said Jamison Peevyhouse, Director of Weakley County 911. “We cannot begin to explain how much we appreciate the response and turn-around time from Atlantic. It showed Atlantic’s commitment to understanding our immediate needs as a client, as well as their dedication to not just being a contractor to Weakley County 911, but a trustworthy partner to whom we can depend on for many years to come.”
