Woolpert Signs Contract with NOAA to Map U.S. Coastal Regions, Great Lakes Print E-mail
Written by Woolpert   
Thursday, 20 October 2016

Dayton, Ohio (Oct. 20, 2016) — The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Office for Coastal Management (OCM) has signed Woolpert to a five-year, multimillion-dollar Coastal Geospatial Services Contract 3 (CGSC 3) to acquire geospatial data of U.S. coastal regions and the Great Lakes. It is part of a $49 million total capacity contract shared among five prime contract awards.

The contracting vehicle enables the OCM to provide governmental entities—local, state and federal—the ability to apply the acquired and developed data and tools for coastal resource management applications.

“The data to be collected includes digital imagery, topographic and bathymetric lidar that will be used as a basis to address coastal inundation, sea level rise, coastal resilience, post-storm assessment and a host of other research,” said John Gerhard, Woolpert project director. “It will provide consistent and accessible geospatial data, while supporting analysis of the data on a national scale.”

Jeff Lovin, director of Government Solutions for Woolpert, lauded this collaborative contract and the benefits it will provide at multiple levels of government.

“I am pleased to see our long-standing relationship with NOAA OCM continue through this new contract vehicle,” Lovin said. “This contract vehicle is unique in that OCM encourages us to bring state and local partner projects to the contract. When you’re able to foster partnerships between local, state and federal entities, everyone wins.”

The data collection for OCM is scheduled to get underway later this year.
