Mapping broadband $350M. Every parcel in American: $200M

ESRI, the premier mapping software company in the nation, AKA the Microsoft of GIS, released a white paper detailing how every parcel in the country could be mapped for $200M. Every parcel. That's a very significant development for real estate and construction.

(Other links have since been pulled since the proposal was rejected.)

We could do a comprehension elevation, hydrology, cadastral, transportation, land cover, and boundary map for $1.2B. That's six major layers down to meter resolution.

And it's going to cost $350M to map broadband down to not even km resolution?
