The Consortium includes the County of Los Angeles plus 25 cities and public-sector organizations. In selecting VARGIS for the multi-year project, Consortium Project Manager Milan Svitek says, "The consortium was looking for a company that could both apply the latest aerial imagery technology to large quick-turnaround projects and manage the diverse interests and expectations of Consortium members."

VARGIS is capturing the imagery with three Zeiss/Intergraph DMC camera systems and LiDAR, the most advanced digital aerial imagery technologies available today. By using a multi-resolution approach, VARGIS can efficiently capture both the urban and rural areas. VARGIS is capturing 3,000-square miles of urban orthoimagery at 4-inch pixel resolution, among the highest resolution ever produced. For the remaining rural areas, such as Angeles National Forest, VARGIS is producing 1,100 square miles of color and color infrared orthoimagery at 1-foot pixel resolution. VARGIS President Greg Tilley notes that ?producing digital aerial imagery at pixel resolutions as high as 4 inches for an area as large and complex as Los Angeles County is an industry first.? Also, VARGIS is employing the latest Leica ALS50 LiDAR technology to produce a new, highly accurate digital terrain model, as well as 2-foot contours with breaklines.

To assist with the project, VARGIS has assembled an expert team of digital imagery and LiDAR professionals that includes Merrick & Company, 3001, Inc., Photo Science, Inc., GE Energy, Inc. and Stantec, Inc.
