CyberCity 3D unveils the Sanborn Emergency Response Map

CyberCity 3D has teamed up with The Sanborn Map Company to create an “engaging map can be customized for a variety of uses for entities including Emergency Medical Services, Police Departments, Fire Departments, Utilities, and Public Safety. Available data includes specific building types and locations; emergency exits; fire hydrant/fire house sites; utilities; and parking.” An example of the map is seen below, and you can try it for yourself here.

This product will officially launch at the 2010 ESRI International User Conference in a couple of weeks.
More merged products from the two companies are expected in the future, which makes perfect sense given their very complimentary offerings. I think we’ll see some great stuff from them in the future.
The full text of their press release is below:
