About Sanborn Oblique Imagery Technology

High-resolution Sanborn Oblique Imagery is created by using five aerial cameras to capture nadir (straight down) and four 45° oblique angle views. To ensure positional accuracy, images are acquired from aircraft equipped with GPS and inertial navigation systems, allowing Sanborn to aero-triangulate all five views. Imagery is then combined with elevation data to produce highly accurate, georeferenced oblique imagery datasets. Combined with rigorous Sanborn quality control measures, the results are the highest-quality oblique data available in today’s marketplace. For imagery acquisition, Sanborn utilizes the Track’Air MIDAS System (Multicamera Integrated Digital Acquisition System), known to combine reliability and consistent image quality with rapid collection capability. This ensures maximum performance and value for Sanborn’s oblique imagery customers.
