DDSI is a service provider in Colorado that surveys and provides boundary information for telecommunication cell sites. Their drawings are used by Architecture and Engineering (A&E) firms to propose site modifications that expand bandwidth and accommodate additional carriers.


DDSI’s field crews are tasked with surveying all topographic features with decimeter accuracy, including:

  • Utility Locates
  • Fences
  • Sidewalks
  • Concrete
  • H-Frames
  • And more


Oftentimes, trees or buildings blocked GPS satellite reception, forcing teams to change between a variety of field collection methods. Sometimes paper and measuring tape was the last resort!


Last year, DDSI adopted a new laser mapping solution from Esri and Esri Silver Partner Eos Positioning Systems. The laser mapping solution allows field crews to collect all topographic features under any field conditions with decimeter accuracy on their iPads. They can stand in one spot and map features without having to physically occupy the asset location. Their field setup includes:

  • Esri Collector for ArcGIS on iOS
  • Eos Positioning Systems’ Arrow GNSS receivers & Eos Tools Pro
  • LTI TruPulse 200x rangefinders


In this webinar, DDSI's Mike George explains how the laser mapping solution works and how it saves DDSI  time and money. Eos Positioning Systems' Sarah Alban joins him with Esri's Doug Morgenthaler.
