Colorado Springs, Colo., May 1, 2012The Sanborn Map Company, with headquarters in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and VisionMap LLC, located in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, jointly announced today the delivery of the VisionMap A3 Digital Aerial Camera System to Sanborn. Sanborn, an industry leader in photogrammetric mapping and geographic information systems (GIS), selected the A3 System after thoroughly evaluating other camera systems.

John Copple, Chief Executive Officer of Sanborn stated, “Our clients are demanding very accurate best – value products and the A3 testing we performed verified the performance of the system will meet those requirements. After an intensive review, we choose the A3 from VisionMap because it presented the best value for Sanborn and our customers.” He added, “The A3 camera system provides high resolution imagery from a significantly higher altitude than the standard aerial mapping cameras and it delivers the largest footprint of aerial cameras available today. This translates into cost savings for our customers.”

It is a large step forward for VisionMap in proving to the US market that the A3 and its processing software is a technology leader in the world-wide aerial mapping industry. With a wide field of view, the A3 collects multi-directional images in both vertical and oblique angles at higher altitudes.
