Colorado, USA, 8 May 2006: Sanborn has been contracted for a three-year term to provide an enterprise-wide information management system to support and manage spatial data to the Bureau of Forestry for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), Bureau of Forestry (BOF) collects and manages spatial and tabular data on the resources, uses and values of the state’s forest as part of its ongoing effort of managing the 2.1 million acre forest system.
Over the years, the BOF has adopted and implemented numerous data collection and information management systems and technologies. The BOF has contracted with Sanborn to develop a standardized, enterprise approach to managing these data and technologies.
Sanborn will provide the Commonwealth with an enterprise-wide forest information management system that will facilitate data sharing with other Commonwealth agencies and stakeholders based on standard and approved hardware, network and commercial-off-the-shelf software technologies. The system will provide a single point of access for spatial and tabular data through an integrated database, providing a standardized interface for entering, editing, retrieving and reporting on forest data.
