Pictometry International Corp, provider of a patented information system that captures geo-referenced, digital aerial oblique and orthogonal images as well as related software, has announced that it has secured its first and second letters of intent for new license agreements with prominent aerial imaging and mapping firms for the United Kingdom and Italy.

Simmons Aerofilms, provider of aerial photography and digital mapping solutions in the United Kingdom, will become the exclusive distributor of the Pictometry software and image capture process for the UK and Ireland. Compagnia Generale Ripreseaeree (CGR) Group, a UNI-EN-ISO 9001 certified company with technical innovation in photogrammetry and remote sensing, will become the exclusive distributor of Pictometry solutions for Italy.
