Geo-coded imagery enhances GIS products and services


Jacksonville, USA, August 07, 2007: Visre Inc. announced that it will make available both network adaptable and Internet enabled libraries of street level imagery and video to providers of GIS, geopositioning and geospatial technology product and services. The company offers full 360° visualizations captured from the street of residential and commercial properties that are GPS located and geo-coded to street addresses and county property IDs. Parcel photos, panoramas and “DriveBy” video can be accessed online via a Flash viewer that integrates the imagery to parcel line enhanced satellite image mapping or can be integrated directly to GIS applications.

With each camera capturing imagery at 12 frames per second, Visre equipped vehicles capture dozens of images each in photographing approximately 4,000 parcels per day. Post-processed for color and clarity, Visre archives the imagery and can make it available to subscribers as a web enabled service or through purchase of its PhotoBank line of servers or rack storage solutions that GIS providers can license and integrate to their in-house networks and solutions.

Visre imagery will be sold in geographic “zones” of parcels typically ranging in number from 10,000 – 50,000 parcels or more. A “Same Day Subject” image service will enable clients to order new property photos that will be quickly shot and uploaded from the field for a nominal fee. Visre will begin video capture of residential neighborhoods nationwide in the 4th quarter and throughout 2008.

“Spatial and geographically referenced information can now incorporate static and moving visuals that are exacting and highly auditable as a source of reference to be included in data analyses. Visre can add new polygon layers to GIS, bringing maps and satellite views to the street.” explained Billy Meadow, Visre’s president and founder.
