Military munitions and related constituents on both active and retired installations represent a principal environmental, health, and safety issue on millions of acres of public and formerly publicly owned land. Due to the large cost associated with traditional "Mag and Flag" Ordnance and Disposal operations, technologies such as LiDAR and Orthophotography, Digital Geophysical Mapping (Helicopter and Ground based), X-Ray Fluorescence, and Synthetic Aperture Radar are utilized. Mr. Hille will discuss the central role the GIS plays in the management, deployment, and implementation of these technologies to provide for a cleaner safer environment.

Peter Hille, Bryan Hosford

Mr. Hille has worked on remediation issues for military bases since 2002. He is currently the GIS manager for the munitions remediation group at HDR Environmental, Operations and Construction, Inc. Mr. Hille has a particular interest in applying LiDAR and GIS to the Geophysical domain. When not applying geospatial thinking to remediation projects, Peter can be seen heading out the door in pursuit of morel mushrooms and other fun in the mountains of Southern Oregon.
