Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railroad Maps into the 21st Century
Interesting press release about BNSF organizing a di(gis)tizing their myriad collection of maps and row documents:
Be nice if we could access that GIS system.
"...she said. “When someone calls to ask for a map or document, I love to be able to say, ‘Yes, I can get that!’”
I call BS on that. I've tried unsuccessfully to get a piece or a copy of the ROW map and been flat out told "NOT AVAILABLE" by company policy. Told me the width and I stated "great.. and where is the centerline" which she couldn't answer. Told me to use the fences. LOL.
Used to be a really nice lady in Omaha would get you what you need. Then they sold the RR. Maybe once they got it all in order they will again provide access to the mapping. We can hope!!
