The Sanborn Map Company, Inc. (Sanborn) aerial acquisition team will mobilize to Arkansas to collect high-resolution imagery to map the entire state of Arkansas under the 2017-2018 Statewide Orthoimagery Program. The firm will collect more than 60,000 4-band, 12-inch and 6-inch resolution images covering 55,000 square miles via 375 flight lines.
The Statewide Orthoimagery Program fulfills the requirement for the Arkansas GIS Office to update the Arkansas statewide imagery base map. The resulting imagery products will be an important resource for state and local governing entities and forms the foundation that enables accuracy and consistency for geospatial products and data produced in and for the State of Arkansas. The Sanborn team, which includes local Arkansas-based subcontractors, will collect imagery during snow-free, cloud-free and leaf-off conditions, which make the final product ideal for a variety of products and applications. In addition, for cities and / or counties that are interested, Sanborn is set to offer value-added products for purchase on an a la carte basis, including among others: resolution upgrades, planimetric mapping and contours.
