Dayton, Ohio (July 7, 2020) — Woolpert has been selected as a prime consultant for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Shoreline Mapping Support Services contract. The firm and its partners will provide updated charting data and analytics of the national shoreline for use in nautical charts, to support maritime navigation, to define territorial limits and to manage coastal resources. The five-year indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract will support NOAA’s National Ocean Service (NOS), National Geodetic Survey (NGS) and Remote Sensing Division (RSD). The contract has a ceiling of $40 million.
The Shoreline Mapping Support Services contract is being administered by NOAA’s NGS. Previous awards under this contract included lidar collection, aerial imagery acquisition, shoreline compilation, GRAV-D and disaster relief. Woolpert specializes in the collection and processing of high-resolution topographic and bathymetric lidar and imagery, acoustic hydrographic services and marine survey.

“We’re honored to be selected for this contract to support NOAA’s shoreline mapping program,” Woolpert Vice President and Maritime Market Director John Gerhard said. “We expect this contract to demand extensive data acquisition and processing for multiple geospatial and hydrographic needs, and we look forward to providing the information and technology that will propel the vital efforts of the NOS, NGS and RSD.”
