OnPoint for Pictometry
The OnPoint Pictometry extension allows users to apply OnPoint functions such as Identify, Advanced Search, Multilevel Join, 3 levels of Security, Redlining, Print and more to orthographic or oblique images. Users can apply the identify tool on any object within the Pictometry image and retrieve its attributes from GIS layers as well as from joined database tables. They can also use standard Pictometry measure tools in OnPoint to measure both vertical and horizontal distances and areas. For more information on available coverage maps visit www.aamhatch.com.
