Mississippi River LiDAR Indefinite Quantity/Indefinite Delivery (ID/IQ) Contract - National, Various Locations

Wilson & Company served as the prime contractor to the US Army Corps of Engineers - Rock Island District project covering approximately 2,000 square miles of the Mississippi River Valley in Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota, Iowa, and Missouri with the opportunity for additional miles to be included in the future. The task order, part of an ID/IQ contract, was completed to Federal Emergency Management Agency LiDAR standards. LiDAR data was captured at a post spacing of no more than 140 centimeters. Sixty control points were produced and analyzed representing three land cover classes. The project was completed in conjunction with a state-wide LiDAR mapping project for the state of Iowa and the US Geological Survey. The LiDAR data is to be used for watershed modeling, storm water planning, floodplain determination, and structure design and estimation. Agencies may also use the data for roadway design, wetland restoration, and conservation practice design, placement, and estimating.
