Sanborn Expands 3-D Digital Maps with Four Major U.S. Cities

World’s Premier National 3-D Building Database Now Includes Full Coverage of Atlanta, Boston, Miami and Seattle

Colorado Springs, CO, February 10, 2014 - For more information contact a local Sanborn professional: http://www.sanborn.com/company/contact.

The Sanborn Map Company announces a key upgrade to its world-class 3-D geospatial product line with the addition of the Atlanta, Boston, Miami and Seattle metropolitan areas. Sanborn’s massive collection of highly accurate 3-D visualization digital data now covers the core downtown areas of nearly 70 major U.S. and international cities.

“Sanborn has the largest database of accurate 3-D cities available,” says Dave Lorenzini, 3-D industry expert. “This expanded metro coverage means more clients can access precision, off-the-shelf models and reap the affordable benefits of 3-D mapping today.”

Sanborn previously has completed large-scale production of 3-D datasets for major metropolitan areas such as Dubai, New Delhi and New York for proprietary customers. The company’s wide range of custom 3-D products offer a host of advantages for emergency response professionals, architects, engineers, real estate developers, urban planners, transportation managers, utility providers and more.

Sanborn creates its 3-D geospatial products by collecting high-resolution aerial imagery to construct highly accurate building footprints, 3-D 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 U.S. National Map Accuracy Standards.

In addition to its custom 3-D geospatial products, Sanborn offers CitySets, an off-the-shelf collection of 3-D data that leverages the company’s rich heritage by incorporating detailed building attributes derived from Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps® and field surveys.
