Rochester, New York, USA, 18 October 2006 – Pictometry International Corp., a company dealing in digital, aerial oblique imagery and measuring software, today announced that it has successfully delivered over eight million (8,000,000) digital aerial images for the six month period ending July 31, 2006.
Pictometry has a 99% share of the oblique aerial imaging market with a 99% customer retention rate. “This delivery of oblique and orthophoto data now brings Pictometry’s aerial coverage of the United States to approximately 50% of where the U.S. population resides.”
By having this level of coverage, Pictometry’s county customers can contact neighboring counties who also use Pictometry and integrate these county image libraries with their own at no additional charge. A single phone call to Pictometry will allow each county to modify their software license to utilize the new data.
For situations involving cross-jurisdictional issues, be it from a planning, zoning, or public safety perspective, having the ability to view neighboring data sets can help communities improve communications, gain efficiencies, reduce expenses, and in the case of public safety, potentially help to save more lives. Counties can also seamlessly interface with state and federal agencies that have Pictometry.
