Sanborn Completes Kentucky County Aerial Project

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. —   The Sanborn Map Company, Inc. (Sanborn) has completed a project for Boone County GIS (BCGIS), Burlington, Ky., comprising the acquisition and delivery of oblique imagery and orthoimagery for the 256-square-mile county.

Geospatial and Aerial Mapping Solutions Nationwide, The Sanborn Map Company, Colorado Springs, Colo.

Formed in 1992 by the Boone County Planning Commission, BCGIS serves 29 agencies that include law enforcement, fire protection, historic and environmental preservation, school districts, and more. Altogether, more than 800 staff members across the various agencies have access to BCGIS services, so it was important that the Sanborn imagery could be readily shared with those who need it.

“One of the primary reasons we chose Sanborn for this project is because they offered us very generous terms for using the oblique data we paid for,” explains Steven Gay, director of GIS services. “Other firms were requiring us to license every single user of the oblique data, but Sanborn was clear on the other end of the spectrum—they encouraged us to provide access to their oblique viewer to as many people as we felt was necessary.”

Sanborn collected the data during the spring of 2016 under ideal conditions—leaf off, snow free and cloud free. The company delivered 6-inch resolution orthoimagery and 6-inch resolution oblique imagery to BCGIS on schedule. Also included was Sanborn Oblique Analyst, a powerful software tool for viewing and working with oblique imagery.

“Sanborn’s professionalism and attention to customer service continually put us at ease,” says James Horton, GIS Data Analyst. “The quality of both the ortho and oblique imagery blew us away, and the Sanborn Oblique Analyst viewer is extremely easy to learn and use. Our users are thrilled to have this in our tool belt.”

Boone County is the northernmost point in Kentucky, converging at the intersection of Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio, and bordered by 40 miles of the Ohio River on the north and west. The BCGIS GIS comprises more than 500 data layers, including more than 56,000 parcels and 67,000 address points.
