With the ADS40, EarthData has successfully provided true ortho-photos to cities and counties throughout the United States.

EarthData Holdings (Washington DC), has purchased a second Leica ADS40 Airborne Digital Sensor to use in airborne imagery acquisition projects. EarthData, which purchased its first ADS40 in March 2003, has seen a significant rise in demand for digital imagery over the year. The rise in demand for digital imagery, coupled with the great success of recent ADS40 projects led the company to acquire a second ADS40 sensor.

In July 2003, EarthData collaborated with its affiliate, Horizons Inc. (Rapid City, South Dakota) and its business partner North West Geomatics Ltd. (NWG) (Calgary, Alberta, Canada) on the largest digital project completed to date. The companies collected aerial imagery of the entire state of Nebraska for the USDA's National Agriculture Imagery Program (NAIP), including imagery of over 90,000 square miles or 5,900 Digital Ortho Quarter Quads (DOQQs) of agricultural land.

In September 2003, EarthData again collaborated with NWG to acquire imagery of 27 eastern North Carolina counties, to assess coastline damage caused by Hurricane Isabel. With the ADS40, EarthData has also successfully provided true ortho-photos to cities and counties throughout the United States. EarthData has begun flying its newest ADS40 sensor throughout the United States.
