Merrick & Company Awarded LIDAR Aerial Mapping Services Contract Sacramento County Department of Water Resources

February 7, 2007 -- Aurora, CO USA – Merrick & Company, a world leader in LIDAR, digital ortho imaging,
photogrammetry and GIS mapping was awarded a contract by the Sacramento County
Department of Water Resources (DWR) to provide LIDAR data, 2-foot contours, bare
earth and building classifications for 389 square miles in a rapidly developing
area. The aerial data collection was flown in January and final delivery of data
that meets or exceeds FEMA standards is planned for May 2007.

According to Gary Outlaw, GISP, Merrick’s Vice President of Business Development,
GeoSpatial Solutions, “We are pleased to be selected again after delivering 380
square miles of data in another part of the county in 2004.”

Pete Hall, Associate Civil Engineer, DWR explains, “Merrick was selected in an open competition
situation again because of their technical expertise, their understanding of data collection
in our area, and their successful past performance.”

The population in the Sacramento County area topped 1.3 million people and has seen a 50%
increase in population from 1980 to 2007. Development has paralleled this growth.
The 2007 data will be used by the DWR to map watershed boundaries and contribute to the
drainage master planning process. The LIDAR data is used by developers and is also provided
to citizens, businesses, and government agencies at no cost. Hall concludes, “New and
updated geospatial data is necessary for the County to continue managing growth.”
