Mercer County, NJ Adds Pictometry for Homeland Security Applications

All municipalities in Mercer County will be able to use the imagery and software for their public safety, assessment and other municipal purposes.

Pictometry International Corp. of Rochester, N.Y., announced that Mercer County, N.J., has added the company's imaging database of the county and software for its homeland security applications.

Mercer County is located in central New Jersey and has a population of 350,000 residents. Under terms of the company's county-wide site license agreement, all municipalities in Mercer County will also be able to use the imagery and software for their public safety, assessment and other municipal purposes.

Pictometry's software enables users to easily access up to 12 different views of any property, building, highway or other feature in a county. The software also enables users to create measurements such as distance, height, elevation and area, directly from the oblique imagery as well as insert GIS content and other data.

Mercer County officials will be using the Pictometry visual information system to provide for more robust homeland security preplanning measures, as well as for improving response times for 9-1-1 calls, and other community planning initiatives.
