Toyota Canada 2, Cambridge, Ontario

for the Ministry of Natural Resources. Thirteen sheets of 1:2000 stereo compiled mapping and computerized property maps were prepared.

Creation of a pilot GIS Wingham, Ontario.

Horizontal control for the Region of Waterloo. Throughout the 1970’s and 1980’s up to 2000 horizontal control stations have been installed in the Region. Our firm has been active throughout that period in the installation and maintenance of many of these control stations.

Note: We have been involved jointly with many engineering firms in the exchange of digital data for subdivisions and major sewer and storm water management projects. In that regard we provided the cadastral fabric for three kilometres of sewer line along the route of an abandoned railway.

A mini G.I.S. system was set up for this purpose whereby we supplied the digital files for the legal surveys which had to match the engineer’s topographical surveys. Final designs were prepared from these files, and eventually we did the legal survey for the pipe location.

One or more survey crews were on the site almost continuously for two and half years. This work included the pre-development legal and site surveys, the foundation contracts including nearly 600 pilings, the floor slabs, the bolt location for steel, and finally the installation of girders supporting the press equipment. Included in the work were two outer buildings together with overhead steel trestles. A total station was employed continuously on the site. Precise levels were also supplied with the WILD NA2 automatic level, parallel prism and INVAR leveling rods. Taped measurements were monitored with a digital thermometer.
