This update comes our way via the crew at Sanborn Map Company in Colorado...

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.

Special thanks is given to Colorado Springs Utility and other members of the Pikes Peak Geospatial Alliance for providing access to the 2011 data which Sanborn is using for comparison purposes.

The imagery captured on June 28, 2012 and displayed in the web services is the property of Sanborn and should not be used for any commercial purpose without the express written consent of Sanborn per the terms and conditions of Sanborn's standard End User License Agreement (EULA) 1. License Granted (a) I Demonstration License. Term of use of the Waldo Canyon Fire data under this EULA is for a period of 6 months.
