GIS: Pictometry: Oblique Imagery training.

Pictometry: Oblique Imagery training.


Pictometry What is it?


Pictometry is a low altitude aerial pilot photography of Connecticut coastal region, shot from the four oblique (angled) compass points and straight down (orthogonal), with such precision that measurements can be made down to within 6 inches. This revolutionary digital imaging process and software program maps each pixel of a digital land image to actual geographic coordinates.


Your privacy is protected! Facial and physical features, license plate numbers and the like are NOT readable in the images, no matter how large you magnify them.


Want to learn more about Pictometry and how to use it?


We will be having 2 day Basic End User classes and an advanced user class on March, 10th and 11th at the State Armory, 360 Broad Street, Hartford, CT, starting at 9:30 am. Each class takes roughly about 2.5hrs long. The first session is the Basic training and the afternoon session will be the advanced User training.  


The pre-requisite for advanced user class is to have attended the Basic class. Since we will be discussing deployments and more technical topics, the participants must have a working knowledge of Pictometry.
