Craig McDaniel, vice president of Sanborn, a geographic information system (GIS) and photogrammetry industry leader, announced that Affiliated Computer Services (NYSE: ACS) of Riverside, California, selected Sanborn for a digital orthophoto imagery project in Riverside.

For the project, which will be completed by the end of 2003, Sanborn will provide new 4-inch pixel resolution color and multiple resolution black-and-white digital orthophoto imagery for the 172 square miles that make up Riverside.
