Patent Office Grants GEOSPAN’s Request for Reexamination of Pictometry’s Patent

MINNEAPOLIS—(BUSINESS WIRE)—March 5, 2009— GEOSPAN Corporation announced today that the U.S Patent Office has granted Geospan’s request for reexamination of Pictometry’s U.S. Patent Number 7,424,133, entitled “Method and Apparatus for Capturing, Geolocating and Measuring Oblique Images.”

In its request to the Patent Office, GEOSPAN submitted prior art that was not considered by the Patent Office when it examined the application that led to Pictometry’s patent. The Patent Office agreed that the prior art submitted by GEOSPAN warranted reexamination of several claims in the patent, and it subsequently issued a Non-Final Office Action rejecting those claims as unpatentable.

GEOSPAN’s patent infringement lawsuit against Pictometry International Corporation of Rochester, NY remains ongoing and is still on track for an early 2010 trial date (Civ. No. 08-816 ADM/JSM). The lawsuit, filed in March 2008 in the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota, alleges that Pictometry has infringed and is continuing to infringe GEOSPAN’s U.S. Patent No. 5,633,946, which issued in 1997 and is entitled, “Method and Apparatus for Collecting and Processing Visual and Spatial Position Information from a Moving Platform.”
