Sanborn Acquires Space Imaging's North American Federal Civilian and Commercial Solutions Business Unit

Sanborn, a Colorado Springs-based geographic information system (GIS) and photogrammetry industry leader, and Space Imaging, the premier provider of satellite imagery, announced that Sanborn has acquired Space Imaging's commercial and civilian value-added solutions business unit.

Space Imaging's Federal Civil and Commercial Solutions capabilities span a full range of geospatial services from in-depth imagery analyses to customized software applications. Since 2001 Space Imaging has grown the unit from a small group primarily serving the West Coast to a national business known for its customer-centric approach and technical excellence in cartography, remote sensing, decision support systems, and geographic analysis. Its customers include federal and regional government agencies and Fortune 500 businesses.

Approximately 45 employees from Space Imaging Federal Civil and Commercial Solutions group will be joining Sanborn's solution development group. In addition, Sanborn will use technology assets from the acquisition to provide Sanborn customers with single source solutions.

By combining customized software and in-house cartography, remote sensing, imagery processing and database analysis, Sanborn will provide GIS solutions to disaster response, security/risk assessment, state and local governments, forestry and ecosystem resource management, air and ground transportation, and wildland fire management.

Space Imaging will focus on its defense and intelligence lines of business that include mapping production, R&D and system engineering services. The company will continue selling satellite imagery to the civil and commercial markets directly, through its International Regional Affiliates and via its network of 75 worldwide resellers.

Terms of the acquisition were not announced.
