ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Each day, thousands of businesses and government organizations are moving their data to a cloud-computing environment, providing anytime, anywhere access to critical information. With Pictometry’s launch of Pictometry Connect, the power of the cloud has come to aerial imaging, combining the company’s vast library of 145 million, high-resolution aerial oblique images with customer-specific GIS data. The result is the industry’s most capable and easily deployable solution for on-demand visual intelligence.

Current solutions can create installation and ongoing interoperability challenges with existing software packages. Pictometry Connect – due to its cloud-based, standards-driven approach – operates differently, allowing turnkey integration with leading GIS and CAD applications as well as existing workflows. Deployment can occur at the desktop, via a local server or through a web browser interface.

With professional-quality aerial imagery being stored in the cloud to ensure world-class management and updates, customers no longer have to continually manage and update terabytes of imagery on their own servers. Instead, they securely upload their own location-based data sets to Pictometry Connect, which are then layered on the images alongside proprietary measurement and analytics tools to deliver unparalleled visual insights.

“Pictometry Connect represents a significant advance in how our commercial and government partners will be able to derive even more value from their GIS data,” said James Smyth, Pictometry’s chief marketing officer. “Not only will they be able to map their own exclusive data against the world’s highest quality aerial oblique image library, but they’ll also have optional access to additional, Pictometry-produced data sets. It’s an elegant, streamlined solution that has the potential to further empower their in-house teams, projects and programs.”

Unlike traditional orthogonal – or top down – aerial and satellite capture, Pictometry’s high-resolution oblique images show each side of every structure, roadway and other outdoor objects, with views from all four cardinal directions. Since each pixel is individually geo-referenced, users can quickly and precisely measure geographic position, height, distance and altitude directly on the images in real-time. The new cloud-based solution also provides access to up to 10 years of imagery, permitting robust, pixel-for-pixel change analysis.
