Pictometry Introduces iPad Application for Connect Mobile

December 4, 2012

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Customers of Pictometry International Corp. are now able to access Pictometry’s vast image library from an iPad, with Pictometry Connect Mobile.

Pictometry Connect Mobile, available to Pictometry Connect and Pictometry Online customers, provides visualization capabilities of high resolution imagery with a simple interface to navigate, pan and zoom. Users have multiple search options including by address, by latitude and longitude coordinates, by specific points of interest and by airports.

“We are now able to supply imagery to our customers who are on the go, giving them the freedom to easily view and reference Pictometry imagery away from their desktop computers,” said Jim Smyth, chief marketing officer at Pictometry.

Upon downloading the free iPad app and entering their Pictometry Connect credentials, users will be able to search, overlay U.S. parcels and U.S. streets onto imagery, tap to identify parcel data, export and email images and be presented with imagery of their current location.

Within the application, users can pivot on the oblique images, displaying all five captured angles of the structure. Depending upon their Pictometry Connect account, users may have access to over 200 million aerial images covering more than 87 percent of the United States population and will be able to zoom out from one parcel to assess an entire area or neighborhood. A pin can be dropped on any parcel, and a bubble will appear to reveal its address.

Pictometry Connect Mobile is available on the Apple iTunes App Store. Customers using devices other than an iPad such as an iPhone or Android tablet can access a web-based version of the application via: https://pol.pictometry.com/m.
