ROCHESTER, NY – February 25, 2008 – Pictometry International Corp., the worldwide leader in digital, aerial oblique imagery and measuring software systems, will be showcasing its state-of-the-art technologies and products at the “Integrating GIS and CAMA Conference” hosted by URISA (Urban and Regional Information Systems Association) and IAAO (International Association of Assessing Officers) February 26-28 in New Orleans, LA.
Exhibiting with business partner HitachiSoft, Pictometry will demonstrate ChangeFindr, a unique tool designed specifically for tax assessors which combines two powerful technologies -- Pictometry’s Change Analysis and HitachiSoftware’s HouseDiff. Pictometry’s ChangeFindr gives tax assessors detailed and relevant side-by-side comparisons of properties using high resolution, oblique imagery and easy-to-use software. Pictometry also plans to feature its suite of 3D products and a new Pictometry web resource dedicated to product solutions for those in the tax assessing field (
“The need for more meaningful collaboration between the GIS and tax assessment communities is increasing every day and Pictometry technologies and products are making the connection possible,” said Wayne Trout, former IAAO president, noting that Pictometry products like ChangeFindr can be fully integrated with GIS data. “Once professionals in these fields experience the potential of Pictometry solutions, it’s hard for most of them to imagine working without Pictometry.”
Pictometry’s industry leading software enables users to quickly and easily access up to 12 different high-resolution views of any property, building, highway, landmark, or structure in an area. The software also enables end users to obtain measurements directly from the imagery as well as insert GIS content and other data.
