  1. FROM HANNAH: In terms of knowing what’s already been done: NC Maps has digitized Sanborn Maps through 1913. However, the resource I was thinking of is published through Proquest. Their scans are black and white only ☹ but go through 1950 or so. Proquest has licensed these scans through Environmental Data Resources, Inc.: This company owns the entire collection, so we could potentially purchase (for how much, though) already digitized maps and license them as Proquest has done. The EDR site states:

    “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 integrate with other tools, like the online Sanborn Map Viewer.”
