GeoMap program improves orthoimagery resolution

Monday, December 15, 2014

The Capital Area Council of Governments GIS Program’s GeoMap, a cooperative buying program, is coordinating the purchase of orthoimagery with 12 participating local entities that include counties, municipalities and the Capital Area Emergency Communications District in 2015.

For the first time ever, the entire 10-county region — more than 8,800 square miles — will be captured in 12-inch or 6-inch resolution. CAPCOG GIS is working to make the data available by county mosaics and ultimately the entire region in one file.

The GIS program provides mapping, GIS consulting, spatial analysis to CAPCOG divisions, member governments and the public. Its most prominent service is maintaining and publishing digital maps for 9-1-1 telecommunicators and dispatchers. In FY 2015, CAPCOG GIS is continuing the  implementation of new data layers for Next Generation 9-1-1 geospatial data, database maintenance, regional support and training.
