Kentucky, USA, 28 June 2006: PlanGraphics, Inc. has been selected to prepare an aerial ortho-imagery request for proposals (RFP) for the City of Reno, Nev. Reno’s rapid growth is a significant contributor to the need for new detailed imagery for the City and surrounding area. The new imagery will update aerial photography that was captured in 2004 through a regional effort.
The RFP will cover an area of approximately 400 square miles. In addition to establishing specifications for the aerial imagery product, the RFP will require both digital elevation and digital surface models as deliverables, and LiDAR (“light detection and ranging”) will be included as an option for producing detailed elevation data. The RFP is expected to be released during the spring 2007.
