The two major features of Photogrammetric Mapping are Planimetric and Topographic Mapping. Planimetric Mapping includes and identifies physical features such as roads, buildings and vegetation, while Topographic Mapping is a collection of break lines and spot elevations. This method of mapping is a primary source for the creation of Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) and Digital Terrain Models (DTMs). Williams Aerial & Mapping Inc. has over 60 years of experience creating both planimetric and topographic maps.
Here at Williams we use a variety of analytic techniques to create topographic and planimetric maps. Some common applications for planimetric mapping include: GIS base maps, Digital Elevation Models, road design, sewer and water utilities layout & design, drainage and runoff analysis, volume determination of sand, coal, and mines, landfill compaction ratios and subdivision design.
