—September 14, 2009
—Pictometry International Corp. is exhibiting new and improved assessment technologies at the 2009 International Association of Assessing Officers (IAAO) Conference which begins today in Louisville, Kentucky and runs through September 16.
Featured in this year’s exhibit is a new technology from Pictometry that was designed to change the way assessors utilize imagery in the field. This technology imbeds street view imagery within Pictometry Online® (POL), Pictometry’s web-based technology. POL is both a desktop and a mobile solution that provides online access to Pictometry Intelligent Images™ using just a user name and password. New enhancements to the product are also being exhibited at the show.
The popular automated change detection tool, Pictometry ChangeFindr™, will also be exhibited. Using Pictometry imagery, this product combines Pictometry’s Change Analysis™ technology and Hitachi Soft’s House Diff™ to create a one-of-a-kind automated tool that gives users a high resolution, 3D like visual comparison of property changes over time.
“Pictometry technologies integrate easily with GIS and CAMA systems so assessors can create a powerful productivity enhancing tool,” said Wayne Trout, former IAAO president and retired assessor. In just the first year of use, for example, Pictometry user Tony Lindauer, Chief Assessor in Jefferson County, KY reported a 70% decrease in field costs and a 281% increase in staff productivity. “Once people experience the power of Pictometry solutions, it’s hard for them to imagine working without them,” added Lindauer.
“Hundreds of assessors across the country use our property intelligence tools daily to maximize their resources, cut travel costs and locate millions of dollars of taxable property enhancements,” said Dante Pennacchia, Chief Marketing Officer for Pictometry. “Our technologies were designed to enable assessment professionals to see more, find more and share more.” The Pictometry exhibit will be located in booths no. 309 and 311.
