DeLorme TopoBird Collecting Aerial Data for Louisiana and Mississippi under USDA NAIP Contract
TopoBird, DeLorme’s digital aerial data collection platform, has begun collecting two-meter digital ortho-imagery for Louisiana and Mississippi, under a contract awarded through the USDA NAIP program. DeLorme is handling the assignment as a sub-contractor to Triathlon/MDA. The TopoBird Cessna Turboprop, with Leica Digital Camera and LiDAR, began the 8-to-15-week aerial collection project in mid-June. TopoBird is available for contract acquisition and processing services, and is used by DeLorme to create high-quality, commercially available stock imagery and elevation model products. To date, TopoBird has collected much of northern New England, including all of Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont, and most of Maine.
