Technology-enabled consulting is at the forefront of VHB’s approach to solving our clients’ and communities’ most complex challenges.

Geomatics, our spatial-centric services, refers to the methods and technologies used to collect, distribute, store, analyze, process, and present geographic data.


Geomatics encompasses the fields of geodesy, geographic information systems (GIS), global positioning systems (GPS), hydrography, mapping, photogrammetry, remote sensing, and surveying. Services include High-Definition Scanning (HDS), Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) aerial mapping with LiDAR, 3D modeling, model-base scanning, and much more.

Understanding Client Needs

Many issues can affect a project. VHB works proactively with our clients to understand their needs and anticipate challenges that a project may encounter. Our clients rely on VHB’s experience and commitment to quality to deliver the geospatial data they need, when they need it.

Through an innovative GIS and data management platform, we offer clients a forward-thinking approach to how data is collected and integrated, giving the client more effectual field survey data.

Staying on-schedule, adapting to inevitable changes, and keeping a project uninterrupted are key steps in which our surveyors excel. VHB harnesses technology, including LiDAR, terrestrial, mobile and UAV to capture and parse data while always staying rooted in the basics. Delivering quality surveys on time, within scope, and within budget is the center of our workflow from kickoff to QA/QC review.
