Since 2004, the State Of Michigan has been working to acquire high resolution digital aerial photography to assist in the geo-spatial data needs of State employees and to provide high quality images as a backdrop for State Of Michigan internet mapping applications.
MiSAIL, building on 6 successful years as the State of Michigan’s imagery program, has entered into contracts with Axis GeoSpatial LLC and the Sanborn Map Co.
With these contracts, the State intends to accomplish the following goals:
Access to good digital aerial photography has created a demand for more data at better resolution collected in a timely manner. This next generation digital aerial photography program is a major step toward reaching SOM goals. The SOM's intent is to acquire digital aerial photography for approximately 20% of the State each year over the next 5 years. It is also the SOM's intent to extend the services and pricing established by this contract to State Partners, which may include, but not be limited to, Local and Federal Government entities.
