Geodynamics was honored to accept the Collaboration Partner of the Year award at ESRI’s Federal GIS Conference in Washington DC March 21-22, 2018. This prestigious award recognizes companies that use ESRI technology to help the US government run more efficiently and transparently by innovating in areas such as national security and marine exploration.
Dave Bernstein, Sloan Freeman, and Ben Sumners accepted the Federal Small Business Specialty Collaboration Partner Award for our work with ESRI’s Full Motion Video and our continuing collaboration with ESRI’s Maritime GIS team. We sincerely appreciate ESRI’s team of product specialists, solution engineers and specialty consultants, whose expertise has enabled us to expand the data analysis and complex visual analysis products we offer our clients through this partnership.
Geodynamics received certification from the New York Department of Transportation as a Disadvantaged Business Entity (DBE) in that state. Based on our DBE certification in our home state of North Carolina, Geodynamics has become DBE certified through the intrastate reciprocity process in five other states: Delaware, Maryland, New York, South Carolina and Virginia.
Geodynamics recently attended the biannual US Hydro conference held in Galveston, Texas. This is an important industry event hosted by The Hydrographic Society of America (THSOA) that includes a wide-ranging technical program, extensive workshops and training events, and exhibit hall. In addition to participating as a hydrographic services exhibitor, Geodynamics also co-hosted an impromptu poolside social gathering for conference attendees. Team members Dave Bernstein, Ben Sumners, and Chris Freeman presented technical presentations about management and analysis of sidescan sonar data, seamless topo-bathy surveys for shoreline management, and the use of bathymetric radar for detection of navigational shoaling. And as a sponsor and organizer of the Student Outreach program, Chris Freeman coordinated an event to introduce students of hydrography to leaders in the field. This program supports students’ attendance at the conference, and also provides important mentorship opportunities for future career guidance.
Sloan Freeman attended the 2017 SAME Small Business Outreach and Industry Day. Held at the Waterfront Marriott in Norfolk, Virginia, this event brought together members of the Society of American Military Engineers and included representatives from federal agencies, large engineering firms, and small businesses. Geodynamics participated in the exhibit hall, presenting information about our niche underwater mapping services to other businesses and federal agents. The event also included panel discussions about future contracting opportunities with southeastern District Offices of the US Army Corps of Engineers and NAVFAC Atlantic.
In March 2017, Geodynamics team members attended a 3-day Geodetic Leveling course at the NGS Corbin Training Center in Corbin, VA. The class covered many topics, including leveling history and theory, modern equipment and techniques, digital level operation and data collection. Participants also learned how to process leveling data, prepare station descriptions, and submit data to NGS. Based on participation in the NGS course, Aron Lemke has prepared leveling mini-courses and practice exercises to provide in-house training to the entire Geodynamics team. These skills will be used for digital leveling and tide gauge installation, and to improve daily survey operation.
