GeoServe is a proprietary online QA/QC tool that provides a central location for Sanborn customers to review, flag issues, and track quality control calls related to an orthoimagery or LiDAR program. Data is served from a central data server at Sanborn to the customer-side computer and uses a mapping interface from within a standard web browser.
GeoServe makes imagery and point clouds available for client review in an online viewer immediately after processing, dramatically increasing efficiency in the QA/QC process. GeoServe further reduces QA/QC turnaround times by eliminating the need for shipping hard-drives containing data to client sites.
As the orthoimagery or LiDAR data is being reviewed, customers can mark tiles as accepted, create bookmarks to continue review over multiple sessions, and flag problems by drawing points or polygons for correction. During all interactions, comments can be easily entered describing questions or concerns. Edit flags and comments are stored in a centralized location and are available for review by the project team and by Sanborn technicians. GeoServe provides real-time email notification when a new issue is created, and Project Managers and clients receive daily email reports updating the status of all relevant issues. To further streamline the process, report recipients can click on hyperlinked issues within notification emails and are taken directly to review the flagged issues within the viewer.
For customers requiring a high guaranteed uptime (Service Level Agreement), the GeoServe website and data can be hosted in the public cloud. Global load-balancing technology is configured in such cases to distribute incoming requests across pools of instances, achieving maximum performance, throughput and availability.

GEOSERVE FUNCTIONALITY: IMAGERY
Sanborn GeoServe has been developed and maintained in-house by a team of qualified Sanborn geospatial software developers. Imagery for QC is served from a central image server to the client-side computer within a mapping interface viewable through standard web browsers.
- Imagery is tiled using lossless compression to speed transmission across the internet
- Flagged issue data is stored using an Open Source PostGIS geospatial database
After Sanborn GeoServe is effectively used and the client is satisfied with the imagery, the project will be delivered in one of three ways:
- Traditional hard drive or DVD delivery
- FTP or through the Google Cloud
- Streaming imagery into any OGC-compliant software as a WMS/WMTS
- Any modern web browser
- High-speed internet connection
