agricultural product dealers, county extension agents, town
governments, fire and police departments, as well as individual
farmers can benefit from our town, country and other large-scale
maps. These maps can be highly customized to fit many needs.
County maps can be created using aerial photographs as background,
and include labeled roads, town boundaries, streams, and
other data. Typical county maps are created with a scale
of 1 inch equals 1 mile or less. Using this scale with the
photograph allows the maximum coverage area while retaining
the ability to pick out individual buildings in the photographs.
Adding labeled roads and streams to the photos on such a
map can help people unfamiliar with the area to recognize
landmarks before leaving the office, making locating fields,
businesses, or other places easier.
Town maps would typically be at a larger scale than county
maps. Such maps would also include labeled roads and streams.
Additional layers that could be useful to town planners
may include street sign locations and types, manhole cover
locations, electric substations, water and gas lines, as
well as many others. Fire and police departments can also
benefit from such maps. These maps could include fire hydrant
locations, business vs. residential area classifications,
hazardous material storage locations, and others. Evacuation
areas and/or danger zones from chemical spills could also
be created using advanced modeling techniques for both airborne
and water contaminants.
Agricultural product dealers maps would generally start
with a base map with labeled roads and streams. Additional
layers (including the aerial photographs) can vary depending
upon the products and services offered. Fertilizer dealers
may want maps with the locations, names, and sizes of all
fields that they service. Seed dealers might desire a map
showing customer locations.
Farmers with a large number of acres might benefit from
a map of their operation. These maps could include layers
such as field boundaries, field names/numbers, acres, crop
type, crop rotation, landowner name, etc. These maps can
help in planning field operations and scheduling, especially
on farms where seasonal laborers unfamiliar with the farm
and fields are concerned.
can make county and town maps for any area in Ohio, Indiana,
Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, and Iowa. We can also make
maps for some areas of Michigan, North Dakota, South Dakota,
and Minnesota. We can also make maps for other areas, but
aerial background imagery is not available.
