Cody Gibson recently joined R&M as a Land Surveyor in the firm’s Geomatics Department. In this role, Cody will conduct hydrographic surveys in support of nearshore and freshwater projects. This includes multibeam and single beam bathymetry, backscatter/seafloor imaging, tidal/water level determinations, and coastal/offshore positioning. Cody will also collect and process LiDAR and Photogrammetric data via an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) to aid in R&M’s surveying capabilities.

“We’re super excited to have Cody join our team. He’s got a great attitude, incredible technical skills and fits right in with everyone we have here. I look forward to working with him for a very long time.”

Cody specializes in field-to-finish efforts for LiDAR, UAS surveys, bathymetric mapping, offshore navigation/positioning, as well as geophysical and geotechnical surveying. He is skilled in project management and logistics for remote land surveys and offshore hydrographic projects.
