How LightBox EDR Has Improved Your Sanborn Experience

A SINGLE, Seamless MOSAIC

 

Since the entire collection has been rescanned into a seamless digital mosaic, reviewing Sanborn maps as part of your historical research has never been more convenient or valuable.

 

With Seamless Sanborn, your target property is centered in the middle of the Sanborn image, and the image will always be oriented north-up. With this improvement, turnaround time has been reduced, and the mosaic images are easy in fun to review in our online viewer, EDR Lightbox.
