Accurate Efficient Mapping to Protect Wetlands in Adirondack Park

Adirondack Park Agency administers the wetlands protection and regulation program for the largest park in the continental United States, Adirondack Park in New York state. The park is about the size of the state of Vermont. For years, the agency relied on maps developed through overlays on top of analog photos, air photo interpretation, and site visits by biologists. The agency needed to obtain the most up-to-date images, determine wetland boundaries before site visits, determine the most efficient way to monitor the wetlands, and reduce costs. APA uses Hexagon Geospatial technologies to view images in 3D to better determine wetland boundaries in the landscape before deploying resources, thereby saving costs by reducing wetland site visits.
