At left is a sample project involving the determination of the precise shape of a historic stone bridge for the purpose of applying it to finite element structural analysis.  This work was published in Portugal.  This illustrates the versatility of GeoCounsel.

The image at left shows a drone survey of a large excavation site.  This was done in support of auditing excavation volumes.  Whether a project requires hand-held, drone mounted or aerial imagery, GeoCounsel counts on the necessary hardware, software and methodology to bring state-of-the-art accuracies into play, together with the necessary ability to document them.  


Below is an example where conflicting utilities need to be mapped and combined with existing cadastral (legal land) information (easments, ROWs, set-backs, etc.).  This type of work can be in support of court cases, and Mr. Schuch has acted as Expert Witness in several courts.
