Hydrographic Survey of Missouri River for Gas Pipeline

The Mapping Network, Dredge America and Engineering firm team up to map the bottom of the Missouri River

The Mapping Network and Dredge America spent several days scouting the Missouri River between Iowa and Nebraska.   Why you ask?  Because it is the middle of winter in this part of the country and there are many frozen dangers on the river this time of year.  The survey team had to find the perfect time when mother nature allowed for safe passage on the river.  After a week of above average temperatures the ice disappeared and the team jumped into action.  The goal was to map a portion of the river where a gas pipeline would be crossing.  The pipeline is buried deep below the river bottom and knowing the existing bottom of the Missouri River is crucial to engineers placing the pipeline correctly.

The survey team was able to finish the project on time despite dodging rogue chunks of ice, trees, sandbars (the current drought has the river at very low levels), other mysterious items floating down the river…and a broken prop!  The resulting map shows many features you would expect to find on the Missouri River.

Kansas City HOA Lake Map Project

The Mapping Network and Absolute Natural Resources teamed up for a mapping project on the western edge of Kansas City, Kansas.  The client, a Home Owner Association, requested the creation of a detailed property and lake map which will then be distributed throughout the community.  Mapping the lake on the property allows for proper management of largemouth bass, crappie, blue gill and catfish populations by knowing exact depths and acreage for stocking densities and vegetation control.  Over 30 sediment depth samples were also collected in the field and placed on a separate map.  The maps are a handy tool for families and guests to the community by showing all trails and fishing hot spots.

Virtual Fly Over on YouTube to Promote Recreational Real Estate Sales

Mike Lashley (Lashley Land & Recreational Brokers) utilizes every cutting edge technology to market his Nebraska recreational properties for sale.  Since a large number of buyers come from out of state or even hundreds of miles away in-state, it is critical to help potential buyers gain a feel for the land from their home or office before spending time and money to visit properties.  Mike Lashley has teamed up with The Mapping Network for all GPS and GIS mapping products to generate interest for his listings.  Using YouTube to show virtual flyovers of properties gives Mr. Lashley a significant competitive advantage in the recreational land market.

Nebraska Hunting Land For Sale This Is One Amazing Piece of Nebraska Real Estate. 3/4 Mile of Niobrara River Frontage and Over 1 Mile of Lucky Creek Running Through the Ranch.

You will have to look long and hard to find a ranch like this one.  Niobrara River frontage, live creek water, secluded alfalfa fields and tremendous rugged canyon land that is 80% tree covered.  There are White-tailed Deer, Mule Deer, Merriams Wild Turkey all in abundance.

The ranch borders the Thomas Creek Wildlife Management Area.  This is over 1,000 acres of Public Land that is walk-in only hunting.  This makes it extremely hard for the Public to get to the back side.  It’s like having an extra 1,000 + acres to hunt.  What makes this one of the finest deer hunting spots is the 89 acres of alfalfa.  These fields are surrounded by tremendous bedding cover.  It’s a huge food plot that is miles from the nearest road.  I drove my Polaris Ranger within 40 yards of 4 White-tailed Deer.  They rarely see people.  There is a cozy 4 bedroom, 3 bath house with garage and a good metal building included.  The current owner would stay on as a tenant and caretaker.  More road development could be made to improve the ranch.  The current owner has the equipment and know how to do both.
