An interesting update from Sanborn Map Company in Colorado Springs. The Waldo Canyon fire has impacted a number of individuals in Colorado Springs. Employees of Sanborn, an industry leader in mapping, have also been affected by the events that unfolded the week of June 24th 2012. As a member of the community, Sanborn staff felt called to action. Sanborn employees have responded with a service to the community to capture and process high quality mapping imagery over the burned areas. The imagery was acquired by Sanborn aircraft flying at 16,000 feet on June 28, 2012 over the Waldo Canyon fire. Employees have worked to implement the map data in a web viewer and as a web service that can be ingested into GIS desktop software to allow use of the data in any way needed to respond and recover from this epic event.
