Pathfinder Navigation is the company to call for Aerial Surveying & Mapping, Geophysical Surveying, GIS Mapping, Survey Line Clearing, and Aerial Imagery Processing. Both experienced and innovative, Pathfinder Navigation has always strived to be an early adopter of technology. The first survey company to offer backpack style INS surveying, early adopters of Drone technology for mapping and now airplane-based mapping and surveying for seismic work and other industries helped by the latest software available.
Our Management staff have over 75 years of experience in inertial and GPS methodologies along with an incomparable knowledge of large scale databasing, processing and mapping of survey information.
Offering a full suite of services from Control and Topographic Surveys, GIS acquisition and databasing to Aerial Mapping, Pathfinder has the ability to get the job done in a safe and efficient manner.
Geophysical (Seismic) surveys provide a rapid, non-invasive method to determine characteristics of Earths subsurface. Pathfinder offers accurate surface point location and mapping that is the start of any successful seismic program.
Pathfinder has dedicated line clearing crews for survey right of way lines and for seismic lines to assist the recording crews in accessing areas which lie within heavy canopy areas. Our methodology using specially equipped power brush saws ensures safe passage for personnel during and after clearing.
Pathfinder has been obtaining Aerial imagery for several years now and has gone on to map hundreds of square miles of orthorectified mosaics and Digital Elevation Models for use in Seismic exploration and other industries. We have a company owned late model Cessna 182 and several fixed wing and rotary drones to obtain imagery.
