Ayres Associates has been reselected to continue its management and facilitation of the Wisconsin Regional Orthoimagery Consortium (WROC). North Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (NCWRPC) will once again coordinate and lead the Consortium. Ayres will be providing geospatial services and products directly to local government members and will be coordinating with partners to bring funding assistance to the Consortium.
Ayres has been facilitating grassroots aerial imagery consortiums in Wisconsin since 1995. For the upcoming program, Ayres again brings Quantum Spatial to the WROC team to provide aerial imagery and LiDAR flight services. This team has been serving WROC since 2010 when it completed the first single-year, leaf-off, statewide orthoimagery consortium in Wisconsin’s history.
The aerial mapping services provided under WROC will continue to evolve to meet the needs of local government members and partner organizations. The plan is to have a coordinated, county-by-county approach over the next three years, with participation peaking in 2020. Ayres will work with all private, federal, and state partners to build the program into regional datasets. WROC has a stated goal of achieving statewide coverage by the end of 2020.
This next cycle of WROC will kick off soon with upcoming informational Webinars describing the consortium approach and participation options. For more information, contact program managers Andy Faust at 715-849-5510 or Kirk Contrucci at 608-443-1200.
