Pictometry International Corp., provider of a patented information system that captures digital, aerial oblique and orthogonal images as well as related software, announced that Hardin County, TN has become the first county in the state of Tennessee to implement the company’s software and imagery in its E9-1-1 Dispatching Center.
Pictometry’s industry software enables public safety agencies and 9-1-1 call takers to easily access up to 12 different views of any property, building, highway, or other feature in a county. The software also enables users to create measurements such as distance, height, elevation, and area, directly from the oblique imagery as well as insert GIS content and other data.
Jim Kerr, Hardin County, TN Chairman says the county’s 9-1-1 Dispatching System will benefit from the Pictometry system in a variety of ways. Other Hardin County agencies will also benefit from the software and imagery. Various agencies and services that will be receiving the system include the Road Commissioner, the local school system, the Fire Department, the Planning Commission, and the County Water and Gas System.
