Integrated Technologies Combine to Form Powerful Military Planning Tool
ROCHESTER, NY – October 23, 2007 – Pictometry International Corp., the worldwide leader in digital, aerial oblique imagery and measuring software systems, announced today that it is launching the Pictometry Military Planner at the GEOINT 2007 Symposium, this week in San Antonio, TX.
The Pictometry Military Planner is the most advanced of a range of Pictometry 3D modeling analysis tools specially designed for military use. It rapidly creates 3D fly-through models from 2D data and uses Pictometry’s oblique images to automatically apply photo-realistic textures to the model, further enhancing the realism of the virtual scene. It also includes a number of important features including radar analysis, weapon range detection, flight planning, troop movement analysis, shadow analysis, slope analysis and the ability to digitize trees to create more realistic 3-D views. The Pictometry Military Planner is designed to work in theatre using an integrated Image Solver that allows for the geo-referencing of oblique or nadir images captured without any geo-spatial information. Once geo-referenced, the images can be used like any other intelligent image within the Pictometry Military Planner system.
“Military planners now have a commercial system powerful enough to provide the very best information available for more accurate and effective planning,” said Pictometry’s Dante Pennacchia, Chief Marketing Officer. “The Pictometry Military Planner blends the latest technologies to create a tool that is unlike any other.”
Pictometry products will be located in booth no. 154. The annual GEOINT Symposium typically attracts more than 2,500 leaders in the field of geospatial intelligence and unites professionals in the intelligence community, academia and government, industry, and military with cutting-edge technologies. The Symposium is sponsored by the Untied States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation, a Virginia based, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the development and application of geospatial intelligence data involved with achieving national security objectives.
Pictometry International is a rapidly growing software company that provides visual information systems. The company’s patented imaging process captures georeferenced, high-resolution oblique (at an angle, 3D-like view) and ortho (straight down) Intelligent Images® of counties and states. Combined with the company’s interactive software solution, users can see everywhere, measure anything, and plan everything. The company has a growing customer base exceeding 200 counties, the State of Massachusetts, the State of Rhode Island, federal government organizations, as well as private business users. Major metropolitan areas using Pictometry® include Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Washington, DC. Applications include 9-1-1, appraisers, assessors, emergency management agencies, engineering, financial institutions, fire departments, GIS, golf communities, homeland security, insurance, law enforcement, planning officials, real estate, and transportation. Pictometry is a second order visualization tool that does not produce authoritative or definitive information (surveying) from its digital, aerial images. For more information on Pictometry, visit
