US: The Sanborn map company has announced a key upgrade to its world-class 3D geospatial product line with the addition of the Atlanta, Boston, Miami and Seattle metropolitan areas. Sanborn’s massive collection of highly accurate 3D visualisation digital data now covers the core downtown areas of nearly 70 major US and international cities. “Sanborn has the largest database of accurate 3D cities available. This expanded metro coverage means more clients can access precision, off-the-shelf models and reap the affordable benefits of 3D mapping,” said Dave Lorenzini, 3D industry expert.
Sanborn previously has completed large-scale production of 3D datasets for major metropolitan areas such as Dubai, New Delhi and New York for proprietary customers. Sanborn creates its 3D geospatial products by collecting high-resolution aerial imagery to construct highly accurate building footprints, 3D building models, street centerlines and orthoimagery. The seamless, color-balanced imagery is available in 6-inch and 1-foot pixel resolution and, depending on the city, meets US National Map Accuracy Standards.
