EarthData to complete base map program for Indiana State

EarthData has signed a contract with the Counter Terrorism and Security Council (CTASC) in the state of Indiana to complete a statewide GIS base map for the state. “The program is the result of 18 months of hard work and collaboration between the CTASC, the Geographic Information Council, and Indiana’s ninety-two counties,” explains Jill Saligoe-Simmel, the executive director of Indiana’s Geographic Information Council.

The partnership among the state and county agencies is a unique feature in the initiative. The choices for using all-digital technologies to map this large (approximately 36,600 square miles) project area, the high 1’- and 6”-pixel resolutions, and the 12-month delivery schedule combine to make this program beneficial for the mapping and GIS industry.
