Pictometry technologies are widely used by county GIS, planning and assessing professionals around the country and a growing number of commercial businesses including those in insurance, utilities, real estate, construction, and more.
Unlike traditional geospatial information systems that rely on only an orthogonal, or top-down view of an area, Pictometry captures images obliquely, or from an angle, and create a more natural three-dimensional view so that users can see land features and structures clearly and in their entirety.
With only minutes of training, a new user can access detailed imagery for every square foot of a region and learn to navigate quickly and easily between views of a map to images associated with it, and specific features contained within images such as doors, manholes, fences, and fire hydrants. Pictometry’s tools can be fully integrated with other systems for added ease of use. The locational data associate with each pixel makes it possible for users to measure numerous geographic details, such as distance, height, latitude/longitude coordinates, directional bearing and relative positioning.
Pictometry’s image capture process captures every square foot of an area in high resolution detail, from both orthogonal and oblique angles, giving Pictometry’s imagery something traditional aerial imagery or even satellite and GPS mapping can’t provide: adetailed metric oblique view of any feature.
Pictometry Intelligent Images® offer sophisticated and often critical visual information in 12 easy to navigate views, putting information at user fingertips and making it possible to work remotely via a wireless connection or from the convenience of an office desktop.
