The Sanborn Map Company has announced it successfully completed the collection of geospatial data for 4,250 line miles of highway throughout the western U.S., allowing the company to expand the reach of its Sanborn M-Map product line.

The M-Map offering was developed for the autonomous vehicle market, and provides precision datasets with absolute accuracy – thus enhancing safety and operational capability for clients, Sanborn said. The Sanborn M-Map highway product specifications meet the requirements presented to the company by multiple vehicle manufacturers, it added.

“Sanborn continues its commitment to our customers by investing in the development of our products,” said John R. Copple, president and CEO of Sanborn. “Our products enable our customers to better accomplish their goals.”

Based on research and development that began in 2015, Sanborn said it launched its proprietary HD Map product line for the U.S. market in 2018, and has continued to deliver its solution to several clients. The company also said it recently automated M-Map production with the addition of a machine learning team, led by Becky Soltanian, Ph.D., the company’s vice president of research and development.

The company aims to deliver state-of-the-art mapping, visualization and 3D solutions for customers, specializing in oblique aerial image mapping, aerial and mobile lidar mapping, aerial orthophotography, 3D modeling and visualization software and services, and other geospatial software products.
