Earthdata begins aerial image acquisition for the Arkansas statewide mapping program

EarthData International has begun aerial image acquisition recently to kick off its recent $1.3 million contract award with the Arkansas Geographic Information Office (AGIO) in US for updated orthophoto mapping. Using multiple digital cameras, EarthData will acquire aerial imagery over the entire state – approximately 52,100 square miles – in a single flying season. All products will be delivered to AGIO within one year, faster than previous programs completed using conventional film photography. Once completed, project data will be made available to the general public through GeoStor, the state’s online GIS data clearinghouse. EarthData is an airborne data collection, mapping, and GIS services organization that provides clients with customized products, services, and GIS applications to support a wide range of land-use, resource management, and engineering activities.
