Companies to demonstrate 3D offerings at the 2007 ESRI International User Conference
ROCHESTER, NY and EL SEGUNDO, CA, June 13, 2007 -- Pictometry International Corp., the worldwide leader in digital, aerial oblique imagery and easy-to-use measuring software systems, and CyberCity 3D, LLC, a leader in highly detailed, accurate, and semi-automatic 3D modeling technology, today announced a business partnership. Under terms of the agreement, CyberCity 3D will become a provider of 3D city models for Pictometry's multi-level Pictometry Real3D(tm) solutions that include Pictometry's Bronze, Silver, and Gold Real3D products. Pictometry will market these solutions to its government and business customers.
Pictometry's patented aerial imaging technology captures and catalogues image libraries of entire cities, counties, and states. The company's industry-leading software allows users to access up to 20 oblique (3D-like) aerial photos of every square foot in an area, including every building, highway, or other feature. The software also enables users to easily and instantly obtain measurements such as distance, height, and area directly from the Intelligent Images(r) as well as overlay GIS data. As an ESRI Developer Partner, Pictometry also provides additional ESRI solutions that include an ArcGIS extension, ArcIMS integration, ArcSDE support, and a COM interface.
The Pictometry Real3D Medalist Suite of products offers a number of cutting-edge 3D options that provide a broad range of 3D solutions for Pictometry customers who require 3D models of their areas. Products range from an entry-level 3D model that offers buildings without textured side details, to a high-end 3D product that provides an incredible, rich detailed visualization from an oblique aerial perspective that zooms down to street level where storefront window displays can be read. 3D City Models will be offered in a broad array of commercial software formats which include ESRI shapefile/Multipatch, open flight, and 3ds to name just a few.
"Pictometry's high resolution, oblique aerial photos provide an unparalleled source of visual data that allows our 3D buildings to be incredibly detailed and realistic. Combining Pictometry source data with our 3D modeling technologies should allow Pictometry and CyberCity to be global leaders in both pricing and product quality for quite some time,"said CyberCity 3D President and CEO Kevin DeVito.
"3D solutions are a natural extension for our digital, oblique aerial images," said Pictometry Chief Marketing Officer Dante Pennacchia. "The applications for our joint solutions with CyberCity are virtually endless when you consider all the possible uses in GIS, planning, transportation, economic development, emergency management, as well as engineering and in private business."
Both companies will be demonstrating the combined solutions at the upcoming 2007 ESRI International User Conference in San Diego, CA from June 18-22, 2007. CyberCity will be in booth number 2216 and Pictometry will be in booth number 1821.
