A GPSC is a suite of contracts used by federal, state and municipal government entities to partner with the USGS to fulfill their geospatial data requirements. Photogrammetric and mapping services, such as those Sanborn provides, primarily are awarded under the umbrella of Architect-Engineer contracting. Services performed under a GPSC are negotiated and managed by the agency's Commercial Partnership Team (CPT).

According to the USGS, its GPSC contractors are selected through a competitive, quality-based selection process, are well known to the CPT and are highly skilled with the full gamut of geospatial and cartographic products. They are industry leaders with product-specific expertise, and maintain technical liaisons with the USGS.

"We're honored that the USGS selected Sanborn to provide professional services under this multiyear agreement," says Jason Caldwell, Sanborn VP of business development and sales. "Only a handful of firms are awarded a GPSC contract. The choice confirms that the agency recognizes Sanborn's expertise and commitment to quality."

Sanborn services performed under the GPSC may include imagery and LiDAR data acquisition; photogrammetric mapping, and aerotriangulation; orthophotography; thematic mapping; surveying and control acquisition; image manipulation, analysis, and interpretation; map digitizing; data manipulations; primary and ancillary data acquisition, and more.
