In the next month, Blue Dasher's fleet of image capture vehicles will photograph every public street and highway in the Tampa-St. Pete metro area. The company's searchable database allows users to visually explore and navigate a neighborhood from ground level through panoramic street-level photographs.
Launched in 2008, Blue Dasher has created the most advanced ground-level mapping database for consumer, commercial, industrial and government applications.
Blue Dasher gathers images using fleets of cars equipped with digital camera arrays. Because images are recorded every eight to ten feet, the result is high-density photography that gives viewers unparalleled accuracy. When viewed online the 360-degree images from Blue Dasher Technologies are seamless, creating an experience similar to driving down the street.
In addition, with Blue Dasher, users have access to exact addresses, which results in a much more useful tool for a host of applications, from researching real estate locations to planning a trip online.
"Our street-level image technology was designed from the ground up to deliver a superior solution to both businesses and government agencies," said Michael Reidbord, president & CEO, Blue Dasher Technologies. "We continue to add metro areas across the country, and are pleased that we're expanding to provide comprehensive coverage of Tampa and St. Petersburg."
Blue Dasher cars will be on the road in Tampa-St. Pete until mid-February. In the Florida market, Blue Dasher has already covered and is currently licensing Orange and Osceola (Orlando), Miami-Dade, Broward (Ft. Lauderdale), Palm Beach and Monroe (The Keys) Counties. The company has also covered major metropolitan areas in California, Arizona, Nevada and Colorado.
Blue Dasher Technologies draws on more than 20 years of work in the GIS and real estate industries. Previous companies founded by Blue Dasher principals built GIS solutions for the oil and gas industry and state and local governments, including the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and the states of Louisiana and Florida.
