MIAMI, USA, February 5, 2009: Blue Dasher’s fleet of image capture vehicles will photograph every public street and highway in the Tampa-St. Pete metro area. The company’s searchable database allows users to visually explore and navigate a neighborhood from ground level through panoramic street-level photographs. Launched in 2008, Blue Dasher has created advanced ground-level mapping database for consumer, commercial, industrial and government applications.
Blue Dasher gathers images using fleets of cars equipped with digital camera arrays. Because images are recorded every eight to ten feet, the result is high-density photography that gives viewers better accuracy. When viewed online the 360-degree images from Blue Dasher Technologies are seamless, creating an experience similar to driving down the street.
In addition, with Blue Dasher, users have access to exact addresses, which results in a much more useful tool for a host of applications, from researching real estate locations to planning a trip online.
Blue Dasher cars will be on the road in Tampa-St. Pete until mid-February. In the Florida market, Blue Dasher has already covered and is currently licensing Orange and Osceola (Orlando), Miami-Dade, Broward (Ft. Lauderdale), Palm Beach and Monroe (The Keys) Counties. The company has also covered major metropolitan areas in California, Arizona, Nevada and Colorado.
