The Sanborn Map Company, Inc. to Provide the State of Vermont with New Digital Orthoimagery

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -The Sanborn Map Company, Inc. (Sanborn) is pleased to announce its five-year contract with the Vermont Center of Geographic Information (VCGI) to collect state-wide digital orthoimagery. Sanborn will use its state-of-the-art fleet of aircraft and digital sensor technology to collect 30 cm spatial resolution, four-band imagery for the orthorectification mapping process.

The orthoimagery will be processed on Sanborn’s cloud infrastructure utilizing specialized AI algorithms to develop a seamless, spatially accurate raster map product meeting both VCGI’s standard and the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing’s national standards.

Additionally, Sanborn will offer VCGI the ability to utilize the Sanborn Image QC™ web-based quality control application, a cloud-based software that provides a platform for efficient viewing and collaboration, to expedite final delivery acceptance. Cities, regions, and/or state entities have the opportunity to “buy-up” higher resolution imagery, planimetrics, impervious surfaces, and/or lidar data during the contract term.
