Hanson receives MAPPS Presidential Award!

MAPPS President, Brian Raber, presents Bob Hanson with the
Presidential Award for Outstanding Service
A big CONGRATULATIONS to Michael Baker's own Bob Hanson (SVP and Chief Scientist), for receiving the MAPPS Presidential Award for Outstanding Service.

Bob was the visionary, catalyst, and leader that launched Michael Baker's Mobile LiDAR services 9 years ago.  He has been a regular guest speaker at MAPPS events over the years and served on the association’s Board of Directors for the past six years. He also has served as the past-treasurer and recently helped facilitate the association’s strategic shift, which resulted in increased revenues and membership.

Formed in 1982, MAPPS is a national association exclusively comprised of private firms in the remote sensing, spatial data and geographic information systems field in the U.S. The MAPPS membership spans the entire spectrum of the geospatial community, including member firms engaged in satellite and airborne remote sensing, surveying, photogrammetry, aerial photography, LiDAR, hydrography, bathymetry, charting, aerial and satellite image processing, GPS, and GIS data collection and conversion services. MAPPS also includes associate member firms, which are companies that provide hardware, software, products and services to the geospatial profession in the U.S. and other firms from around the world.

Memorial Day - Remember and Honor

On behalf of Michael Baker International, the Mobile LiDAR Team would like to take the opportunity this Memorial Day to recognize and remember our country’s military members who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect the very freedoms we enjoy today. As you spend this weekend with loved ones, please think about those who fought and gave their lives to secure the liberties that allow us to live, work and make a difference.

As a firm that employs veterans from many countries and delivers mission-critical services in support of our country’s military across the globe, we’d like our active duty, reserve, guard and contractor friends and family to know they are in our thoughts during their extended deployments and separation from friends and families.

If you are able and so inclined, please consider making a contribution to organizations that support the surviving spouses and children of our fallen heroes. Such organizations include (but not limited to):

· Special Operations Warrior Foundation - http://specialops.org/
· Children of Fallen Patriots - http://www.fallenpatriots.org/
· Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund - http://www.fallenheroesfund.org/

 Thank you,
The Mobile LiDAR Team
