Colorado's premiere geological consulting firm
From our revolutionary approach to operations and wellsite geology, to our cutting-edge aerial mapping services, we remain focused on one simple ideal: how can we help our clients streamline their operations and improve their bottom line?
We're growing, and so is our list of services
With all of our services we provide accurate, timely interpretations through our secure online reporting system so our clients can access their data anywhere, anytime using a computer or smartphone. We use Petra, StarSteer, and SES for mapping and geosteering.

From planning to execution we've got you covered
Using an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV or drone) our FAA licensed pilots capture high-resolution visible imagery (up to 0.5 cm/pixel) to precisely identify and inspect features on the ground and produce detailed 3D surface and terrain models; and our multispectral imagery is a powerful tool for analyzing plant health. With short flight times and fast turn around on all projects, we will help you avoid the high cost of traditional ground-based methods with better spatial coverage and more useful results.
