The multi-entity Wisconsin Regional Orthophotography Consortium (WROC) allows counties and other agencies involved in the program an efficient and collaborative means of collecting and sharing important imagery, elevation, and mapping data throughout the State of Wisconsin. Operating in five-year cycles, WROC is now approaching its sixth rotation and has increased participation, streamlined its processes, and expanded the amount of digital orthophotography and elevation data gleaned with each passing cycle. Participation has grown from seven entities in 1995 to 78 in 2015 – touching every corner of the state and allowing for an unprecedented amount of available data. The WROC team, along with its members and partners, acquired and processed nearly 45,000 square miles of high-resolution orthoimagery and over 15,000 square miles of aerial LiDAR throughout the state in the 2014-15 flying season alone. This presentation will outline the benefits, check in on the current status, and predict future developments of the WROC program as it steamrolls towards 2020.
