GeoMap looks ahead to 2014 with new product in tow

Saturday, November 09, 2013

CAPCOG’s Geospatial Base Mapping Project, “GeoMap,” is on track to cap a robust year and further expand services for 2014.

GeoMap 2014 will debut high-resolution oblique imagery, allowing stakeholders such as appraisal districts to now view properties from all four sides and measure structures vertically and horizontally without ever leaving the office.

The new product’s multiperspective viewing capabilities offer significant reductions in field work and can be an important tool for property assessment, planning, public safety, emergency management, fire and rescue and many more applications.

Award-winning GeoMap comprises a cost-sharing initiative to produce and maintain current geospatial base map data for local jurisdictions, developers, consultants and other interested parties.

GeoMap’s current year has included coordinating more than 12,000 miles of aerial photography for the Central Texas Council of Governments.

Looking ahead, GeoMap has already booked 2014 projects to secure aerial imagery, Lidar images, building footprints and more for area participants. Also, CAPCOG has competitively selected a vendor for GeoMap 2014: Fugro EarthData Inc., a leader in geospatial technology, brings a rich history of geospatial data acquisition and analysis.
