Blom and Microsoft have extended the agreement for delivery of BlomOBLIQUE by an additional year. The extension was an option available in the five-year framework agreement signed between the parties in March 2010. The contract extension officially starts on July 1, 2012.

Blom’s unique and extensive library currently covers more than 1,500 cities in Europe; this is the most comprehensive and detailed image database available worldwide.
is aerial imagery photographed with an inclination of approx. 45-degrees,
providing a unique perspective view of any location. The imagery allows users to
visualize facades of buildings; the oblique angle exposes blind spots, exits
and entrances previously impossible to locate on vertical aerial imagery. In
addition, it improves identification of hard to see assets and facilities in
any environment such as lamp posts and bus stops. Users can also view GIS data
in 3D by draping it on to the oblique imagery; the images are geographically
referenced and provide the ability to measure height, length and areas of
features directly from imagery.
