Here's the latest from NGS Contracting:
November of 2004, the final shoreline mapping project from the
first round of task orders was completed by the contracting firm
and accepted by NGS. In all, five contracting firms conducted
eight shoreline mapping projects in six states. The final products
from these surveys will be used throughout the National Ocean
Service for, amongst other purposes, critical updates and maintainance
to NOAA nautical charts.

NGS accepted the final original Height Modernization task order
from contractors working in various counties within North Carolina.

sector where the need for the most accurate and precise elevation
determinations continues to expand.
In June of 2004, NGS tasked a total of thirteen
shoreline mapping projects throughout thirteen states to the five
firms under NOAA contract. The work constitutes the largest single-year
contracted shoreline mapping effort in terms of project load,
