 U.S. FOREST SERVICE NAMES ANALYTICAL SURVEYS
 TO MAP THREE MILLION ACRES OF NATIONAL FOREST
 COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Analytical Surveys, Inc. announced today that it was selected by the U.S. Forest Service to provide digital orthophotography of three million acres of the Wenatchee National Forest in Washington state.
 Digital orthophotography is the process of forming digital photo graphic images with mapping accuracy from aerial photographs.
 The U.S. Forest Service will use this raster image database to enhance forestry management including accurate calculation of timber harvests, timber typing and identification of environmentally sensitive areas. This project will be completed over a 12 month period and is Analytical Surveys' first major contract of this kind with the federal government that calls for the use of the company's emerging digital orthophotography technology.
 Analytical Surveys also announced that it has received two other mapping contracts in addition to the Wenatchee National Forest project. The three new contracts total more than $1 million and bring the company's backlog to $11.3 million.
 Analytical Surveys will perform photogrammetric mapping of more than 1,400 square miles of Yavapai County, Ariz. and convert cadastral (or boundary) data for more than 7,000 parcels. Photo grammetric mapping converts existing data into a computerized format. The contract will be completed over three years beginning immediately.
 Loudoun County, Va. has also contracted with Analytical Surveys. The company will continue planimetric conversion services for a period of one year. This contract is an extension of services performed dating back to 1989. Loudoun County was selected for the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA) Small Municipality Exemplary Systems in Government award.
 "We are pleased to see our past work and current sales efforts leading to new and continuing contracts," said John Mead, vice president of sales and marketing for Analytical Surveys. "In these days of real and perceived market pressures, the value of our sv?ices continues to be recognized. It is a strong indicator of our success in meeting client expectations and needs."
 In other news, Analytical Surveys received notice to proceed on phases III and IV of a multiyear contract with Beaufort County, S.C. When the project is complete, Beaufort County will have a complete digital map database. This work is part of a previously announced contract and is already represented in the company's backlog.
 Analytical Surveys, Inc. is a professional services company providing digital mapping and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) database services. The company is an industry leader in innovative technological advances and productivity. Its clients include cities, counties, utility companies and others making use of the emerging technologies related to digital mapping.
