Emily's Amazing Rodeo Season!

Emily Machado is an amazing young woman who we have had the pleasure of sponsoring for some years.  Here are her words, “Because of your wonderful sponsorship I was able to have another amazing rodeo season.  With your support and my hard work I was able to win the All-Around Cowgirl and be the Goat Tying Champion.  I also earned a spot into the State Finals in Bishop, CA in the Breakaway Roping, Team Roping, Goat Tying, and the Cutting event.  I hope I can reach my goal and make it to the Nationals in Gillette, Wyoming.”

UAVs + 40 years surveying experience = 9 Siskiyou landfills surveys

Thanks Siskiyou County, for selecting SHN to survey nine remote landfills using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and the latest image processing technology, along with typical surveying instruments such as total stations and GPS.  Surveying and mapping using UAVs is proving to be cost-competitive with traditional surveying techniques.  “Point cloud density” generated by photogrammetric methods can provide higher definition than standard grid and conventional survey methods, and UAVs are often more cost effective than manned airplanes, because they are more flexible with respect to weather, and they can be flown at lower altitudes, producing higher resolution images.
