Call for Projects

2019 Capital Area Orthoimagery Project – Call of Projects

Capital Area Orthoimagery Project, formerly the GeoMap Program, provides and maintains the region's need for geospatial base-map data through a cooperative purchasing measure that receives volume discounts for the greatest geographic coverage. CAPCOG is soliciting its members to participate in the 2019 project. Its first call for projects will help construct a statement of work for soliciting vendors to determine costs: the more participants, the greater the geographic coverage, the greater the price discount.
