Corporate Capabilities

Since 1866, The Sanborn Map Company has been a leader in the evolution of all forms of the geospatial information system—we use technology to make a difference in decisions about the world around us. Sanborn products and services have allowed customers to view, understand, question, interpret, and visualize data in ways that reveal relationships, patterns, and trends in the form of maps, globes, reports, and charts—helping customers answer questions and solve problems by providing and analyzing data in a way that is quickly understood and easily shared. In addition, our core remote sensing technology allows us to develop a broad range of geospatial solutions. 

Recent investments have resulted in new product offerings such as oblique aerial imaging, and change detection mapping software. We also are investing intensely in web-based delivery systems, new collection platforms, and over a Petabyte of data storage to support our diverse customer base. Sanborn has the ability to service the entire range of geospatial information system services—from field data collection to the creation of large-scale decision support systems.
