Applications for 3D-Like Aerial Photos Lets Associates View and Measure Properties Online
ROCHESTER, NY and BOSTON, MA - January 05, 2006 - Pictometry International Corp., the worldwide leader in digital, aerial oblique imagery and measuring software, and The Real Estate CyberSpace Society have announced today they have entered into a marketing alliance that will enable the 9,000 members of the CyberSpace Society to have access to Pictometry's aerial imaging databases via the Internet.
Unlike traditional aerial photography, Pictometry's patented imaging capture process takes high-resolution photos that are oblique, or at an angle. This presents the 3D-like visual information of homes, buildings, and entire neighborhoods in a more intuitive manner that lets viewers virtually walk through an entire community at the click of a computer mouse. Using Pictometry Online, a web interface for viewing watermarked and non-watermarked imagery, Real Estate CyberSpace Society members will have the option to subscribe for additional web-viewing services that will allow them to not only view aerial images of comparable listings, but to also obtain basic measurements such as frontage, height, area, and square footage of buildings and properties.
"Our members will now have an unparralled method to view not just the details of a specific piece of property, but the ability to view intricate details of the entire neighborhood that they could not see even if they had driven to the property itself," said Society Executive Director Jack Peckham. "Pictometry presents a powerful tool that our members can use to market and do due diligence on properties. Viewing the neighborhood online will save tremendous time. Selling points of properties that may not have been apparent are now a vital part of the transaction process."
Society members can access the Pictometry Online service from their members only section at www.REcyber.com Non member may preview this technology at: www.REcyber.com/cybertools.html
