Sanborn owns and operates a fleet of aviation assets readily available for imagery acquisition at any U.S. location or abroad. Our inventory of digital aerial orthoimagery platforms includes three state-of-the art UltraCam Eagle sensors—designed to produce superior imagery for project areas of any size or scope. Leveraging proprietary aviation and acquisition assets, Sanborn produces authentic and accurate digital orthoimagery products while applying rigorous quality standards through every step of the process.
Sanborn Orthos are produced by combining an AOI’s digital aerial imagery with its respective digital elevation model. This is accomplished through the use of innovative software techniques, rigorous production processes, and comprehensive quality control measures. The resulting orthorectified image contains the image characteristics of a photograph with the geospatial qualities of a map. This facilitates the integration and sharing of data, promotes cooperative processes, and reduces high-cost of duplication in database development. Sanborn Orthos are available at various pixel resolutions, applicable for many different uses.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT RESOLUTION
Sanborn Orthos are available at various levels of accuracy and pixel resolutions, which may apply to many different applications. Pixel resolution (pixel=a single point in a raster image) refers to the actual distance on the ground each pixel represents in the orthophotography. For example, a one-foot pixel resolution means each pixel in the image covers one foot on the ground. Some common resolutions include three-inch, six-inch, and one-foot. The higher the resolution, the greater the visible detail. Click here for more information about choosing the right resolution for your project.
