Mapping Services - Vector Feature Extraction

Sample of our Custom Mapping Services


Our Most Requested Service

By far, the request to digitally extract contours from a USGS topographic map is our most requested service we offer.  When you need the accuracy of an original USGS map, this is the only way to achieve it.


The Process

A USGS topo separate is purchased from the USGS and scanned at a high resolution.  Once the raster is captured, the image is processed using a proprietary raster to vector conversion software package.  This gives a clean vector contour layer that can be exported into most mapping and GIS software package file formats.



The following price ranges are estimates based on converting ALL features (contours, hydro, roads, plss, text, etc.) from a standard USGS 1:24k topographic map.

High complexity  =  $ 900 to $ 1,400 per map
Average complexity  =  $ 675 to $ 900 per map
Low complexity  =  $ 450 to $ 675 per map

Prices depends on the complexity of the project.  Please call or e-mail us to discuss your project or to prepare a price quotation. 

USGS is not the only maps that we do

Our process allows us to extract vector data from any map or drawing that you have.  Call us to discuss your needs.
