To celebrate the opening of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, AAM and partner company, AOCGeomatics, have released two products on their websites: movies/fly throughs of the stadiums in 3D and a free World Cup Stadium Viewer.
The World Cup Stadium Viewer is quick and easy to use. Simply click onto one of the soccer balls to open up a Pictometry captured image of the stadium, then click onto the stadium image to start an interactive experience of the stadium with perspectives: north, south, east, west and vertical.
Each stadium is being showcased using Pictometry Online. Pictometry Online provides automatic and instant access to oblique and vertical views in an intuitive, easy-to-use web interface. Users have online access to measurement tools such as building height, roof pitch and area which is the unique differentiator of this product from anything else available. AAM and AOC are constantly updating their Pictometry Online coverage, with extensive coverage already available over South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
AAM and AOC have also released three new 3D building models of the South African World CupStadiums on their websites. Movies of these 3D building models showcase the different angles andviews over Soccer City Stadium, Green Point Stadium and Ellis Park Stadium.

Pictometry International Corp. is a leading provider of geo-referenced, aerial image libraries and related software. Pictometry has captured nearly 130 million digital aerial images which represent more than 80 percent of the United States population and all major U.S. markets. Using its proprietary imaging process, Pictometry captures geo-referenced, high-resolution orthogonal (straight down view) and oblique (captured at an angle) imagery within which structures and land features can be measured. Pictometry customizes and markets these technologies for government and commercial applications. Pictometry’s standard oblique imagery includes second order visualization tools that do not produce authoritative or definitive information (surveying). For more information, visit www.pictometry.com
