PlanGraphics Inc. has been contracted by the District of Columbia’s Office of the Chief Technology Officer (OCTO) to update their aerial photo base map which serves as the keystone of the District's GIS and mapping activities. PlanGraphics, Inc. will use state-of-the-art TrueOrtho digital ortho photos from ISTAR Americas, Inc. PlanGraphics Inc. became an ISTAR business partner in the spring of this year and the District of Columbia assignment follows a similar engagement for New York City this spring.

“Access to this technology is a major advantage for our GIS implementation practice,” said, Richard Goodden, PlanGraphics Inc. Vice President and ASPRS Certified Photogrammetrist. “What is truly significant for us and our clients is the short turnaround time. ISTAR acquired data in April, 2002 for the District of Columbia and will deliver a completed photo map of the entire city area early this summer. ISTAR is an international aerial imaging and photogrammetric processing company with US offices in Herndon, VA that provides high-resolution digital data to cities, counties, and various commercial and government clients around the world. ISTAR produces digital images and 3D surfaces through an automated TrueOrtho production system.
