Gary Eaton, senior vice president of Sanborn, a geographic information system (GIS) and photogrammetry industry leader, announced that the company has won large mapping projects in North and South Carolina. The company will work on five projects, including three in North Carolina and two in South Carolina.
Sanborn was chosen by New Hanover County, North Carolina, to provide color digital orthophotos, building footprints, and four-foot contour mapping for the county. Rowan County North Carolina and the city of Salisbury-the county seat-also contracted Sanborn to provide color digital orthophoto imagery for the county and the city. Additionally, Iredell County, North Carolina, chose Sanborn to update its black and white digital orthophotos, which Sanborn last mapped in 1997.
Sanborn expects to complete the three projects within twelve to eighteen months. In South Carolina, Sanborn was chosen by Pickens County to provide color digital orthophotos, building footprints and four-foot contour mapping for the county. Sanborn won a separate project to provide color digital orthophoto imagery for Newberry County, South Carolina as well. Both projects will be completed in one year.
