Cross Consulting Engineers was retained to survey and map 40 parcels containing over 1500 acres for the Burke Mountain Ski Area in East Burke, VT. Requirements of this project included research and measurements of over 60 parcels totaling more than 3000 acres. This work involved surveys of Town and County lines, Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation property and numerous individual parcels ranging from less than one acre to more than 400 acres. Over 850 deeds were compiled, scanned and indexed. The end result was 28 survey plats all tied to the Vermont State Plane Coordinate System.
In addition to the boundary survey work described above, we also located more than 7000 wetland flags placed by the wetland scientists. The flags were located using our survey grade GPS system and downloaded into Autocad Land Development Desktop software for use by the project planners.
Cross Consulting Engineers was also retained to provide topographic information for more than 10,000 acres of land surrounding the ski area. More than 50 ground control points were established using GPS and aerial photos were taken to provide photogrammetry of the area. LIDAR was also used to develop existing conditions base plans of the area.
