April 5th, 2012, San Diego, Calif. – Vertical Mapping Resources, Inc., a leading photogrammetric and geospatial land information firm with offices in California and Arizona, was recently contracted to provide digital mapping and color ortho-photography services to support improvements of the I-5 Freeway from the San Joaquin Transportation Corridor to El Toro Road.

The Golden State Freeway (I-5) is the backbone of California’s freeway system, running north-south from the Mexican border to Oregon and then beyond to Canada. It is a key transportation route for the movement of people, goods and services throughout the state.  The improvement project will widen the I-5 to accommodate additional general purpose lanes in each direction, reestablish existing auxiliary lanes, extend the second carpool lane from El Toro Road to Alicia Parkway and modify ramps as needed.

VMR was tasked with providing 1”=50’ topographic mapping, with 2’ contours, and digital color orthophotography of the entire 10 mile alignment.  The project included acquisition of color aerial photography for the stereoscopic feature collection and surface modeling.  VMR also produced a color orthophoto mosaic of the site with a .25’ pixel resolution.  All products were delivered in CALTRANS standards and in full compliance with their ABC checklist.
