WHY DIOPTRA? Dioptra has been providing surveying, mapping, and G.I.S. services since 2000. Prior to the creation of Dioptra, Rodney Burch was the original founder of a full service surveying & engineering company in Southeast Idaho. After selling the former company and serving as the program coordinator of the Civil Engineering Technology Program at ISU, Rodney returned to the consulting profession doing business as Dioptra Geomatics.
WHAT’S IN A NAME? The dioptra is the original survey instrument developed by Greek Astronomers for use in measuring angles. This tool was used extensively to assist in the growth of the Greek Empire.
“I have worked with Dioptra on simple survey work and very complex survey work. Whether the project required a simple survey for purchase due diligence, or a complex topographic survey with dozens of obstacles, Dioptra has the skills and technology to provide what we need. It’s a pleasure working with Dioptra. I will use them again and would recommend them to a friend or peer.” -Dustee Woolstenhulme, Idaho Central Credit Union Project Analyst
