Rochester, US: Pictometry International Corp. released Pictometry® Integration for AutoCAD Map 3D 2012. This new integration connects users of Autodesk’s AutoCAD Map 3D with access to Pictometry’s library of Intelligent Images, all while working within the Map 3D environment.
With Pictometry for AutoCAD Map 3D, AutoCAD Map 3D users can quickly and easily bring high resolution real-world oblique and orthogonal imagery of field locations and corresponding geospatial data into their day-to-day workflow. As a result, pipes, manholes, power lines and other Map 3D CAD and GIS infrastructure data can be accurately displayed on top of Pictometry’s patented geo-referenced imagery. Users can then measure on imagery and calculate area, distance, height, elevation without ever leaving the office.
Paul McRoberts, Vice President, infrastructure product line group, AEC solutions, Autodesk, said, “Autodesk offers a broad portfolio of solutions — including the new Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite 2012, which includes AutoCAD Map 3D 2012 — to help consultants and owners plan, design, build and manage more sustainable infrastructure. The integration with Pictometry will help to enhance that workflow for our users. ”
With Pictometry for AutoCAD Map 3D users can also see locations from multiple perspectives; detect change that has occurred to structures and locations over time; extract latitude/longitude coordinates, save images, measure elevation and slope, view property parcel data and separate individual GIS data layers.
“Autodesk and Pictometry both understand the importance of working in a three dimensional world. Together we are building tools for better planning, designing and managing assets through a thorough understanding of a location and the ability to make precise calculations,” said Pictometry Business Solutions President Kevin Reilley. “Pictometry imagery allows users to view every square foot of a location and gives users such a complete understanding of a location they can act with greater confidence and cut costs by bringing the field into the office.”
