Pictometry Set to Capture Digital Terrain Data for Final Phase of Los Angeles County Consortium's Mapping Project

Bothell, Washington (PRWEB) June 03, 2015 -- EagleView Technology Corporation, a leading technology provider of aerial imagery, data analytics and GIS solutions, announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Pictometry International Corp., secured an order from the Los Angeles Region - Imagery Acquisition Consortium (LARIAC) to provide digital terrain datasets through LiDAR capture of the 4,000+ square mile area that makes up Los Angeles County.

Slated to begin later this year, the project will capture and deliver LiDAR in accordance with USGS Quality Level 2 specifications. At two points per square meter, this will equate to over 21 billion individual measurements of elevation across the County. Pictometry will also provide the consortium with a number of derivative digital terrain datasets, including a digital terrain model, digital elevation model, digital surface model as well as one and two foot contours of the project areas. "We are looking forward to the LiDAR capture which will be the final phase of the LARIAC4 imagery and mapping project," stated Mark Greninger, Geographic Information Officer, County of Los Angeles. "The digital datasets when combined with Pictometry aerial imagery and our geographic data will provide powerful intelligence and information for all the members of LARIAC."

The LiDAR project will allow consortium members access to the digital data and imagery for use in 3D modeling, floodplain and watershed mapping, disaster management, land use planning, transportation planning, volumetric studies, solar modelling, vegetation analysis, sustainability planning, and more. "The elevation data will provide the County and consortium members a core of authoritative, high quality data that will be critical for mapping, analysis, and support of the County's mission" explained Greninger. "These datasets will be included in our enterprise GIS system, available both internally and externally to allow for more cost-efficient operations."

Pictometry President of Government Solutions, Robert Locke, said that the project represents a natural progression in the long-term business relationship the company has with the consortium. "We are pleased that the County of Los Angeles recognizes Pictometry's expertise and ability to provide LiDAR and digital models," stated Locke. "While known as the leader in aerial image capture, Pictometry is also extremely qualified and experienced in LiDAR capture and delivery."

Pictometry completed most of the LARIAC4 mapping and image acquisition project during 2014, with the remainder to be completed in 2015.
