Horner & Shifrin was retained by the Missouri Department of Conservation to provide Infrastructure Inventory and Condition Assessment services at 128 Conservation Areas in the State of Missouri. Four conservation zones containing conservation areas were established by the Missouri Department of Conservation to simultaneously coordinate the work between consulting firms. H&S was awarded two of the eastern-most zones encompassing nearly half of the state, containing approximately 300,000+ acres of conservation areas. The two-year program requires strict adherence to a nearly 1,000 page condition assessment methodology, and use of MDC provided asset collection software. In addition to asset collection and condition assessment key aspects of the project include population of spatial GIS assets, collection of non-spatial data such as asset agreements, documents, and diagrams, rectification of asset data with historical reports, integration of third party GIS data sets, data governance through the use of automated GIS tools, and integration of LiDAR, UAS, and traditional survey methods.
