Rochester, NY — February 23, 2010 — Pictometry International Corp. is exhibiting powerful new visual intelligence solutions designed for the pipeline industry at the ESRI Petroleum User Group conference February 22-24 in Houston , TX (booth no. 500).
“Pictometry gives pipeline users the ability to locate sensitive environmental areas and plan routes with the confidence of knowing they’re using the most sophisticated geospatial information available,” said Jim Murray , Pictometry’s Vice President – Oil & Gas Pipelines. “Pictometry puts powerful, easy to use visual technology at your fingertips for a fraction of the cost of traditional methods. It’s a technology that saves time and money and redefines the way people work.”
Pictometry imagery is high resolution aerial oblique imagery that’s measurable. Originally designed for government use, this powerful visual information technology is now being used to provide pipeline operators with a single source for geo-based business solutions. Pictometry’s suite of pipeline products include cost effective image-based decision tools for vegetation analytics, HCA (High Concentration Area) verification, elevation modeling and more.
“Pictometry is breakthrough technology, a tremendous resource and an incredible value,” said Jesse Bajnok, project manager for TransCanada.
Pictometry’s patented visual information system captures high resolution (2 to 12 inch resolution) aerial, oblique imagery (imagery captured at an angle to reveal greater locational detail) for every square foot of a flown location. Geo-referenced and locationally accurate, this imagery is enabled with accurate metric measurement capabilities so users can see, measure, plan and annotate directly on imagery. Users can also overlay pertinent GIS information to create a powerful and comprehensive tool that integrates easily with existing interfaces.

Pictometry International Corp. is a leading provider of geo-referenced, aerial image libraries and related software. Pictometry has captured over 130 million digital aerial images representing coverage in more than 80 percent of the United States population. Using its proprietary imaging process, Pictometry® captures geo-referenced, high-resolution oblique (at an angle, producing a 3-D like view) and orthogonal (straight down) Intelligent Images®, within which structures and land features can be measured. Pictometry customizes and markets these technologies for government and commercial applications, offering non-traditional software solutions to aerial imaging needs. Pictometry is a second order visualization tool that does not produce authoritative or definitive information (surveying) from its digital, aerial images.
