The time for our Pictometry training is near. We have received our initial delivery of Pictometry data, and it is time to set-up training for all of you.
What is Pictometry?
Pictometry is a unique information system that combines aerial imaging with software to provide visual intelligence. While Pictometry libraries contain orthogonal (straight down) images, the majority of Pictometry images are oblique (shot from angles) so that features can be easily seen in their entirety from different directions. Using Pictometry’s software, a user can see everywhere, measure anything, and plan everything.
Who can benefit from Pictometry?
Everyone benefits from visual intelligence. Applications are as varied as the geography photographed. From public safety agencies, assessors, homeland security and emergency response teams, to planners, gis specialists, engineers, and land developers.
How can you learn to use Pictometry?
Two identical End User classes will be conducted on Thursday, September 6th in the third floor conference room of the courthouse. Each End User class is approximately 3 hours long, with one class at 9:00 am and the other class at 1:00 pm. The classes are ‘hands-on’ and have limited seating. Computers with access to the imagery and the software will be provided.
There will be an Advanced User session on Friday, September 7th in the third floor conference room of the courthouse. The pre-requisite for this class is to have attended the End User class. There will be one session for this class, approximately 3 hours long, beginning at 9:00 am. Since deployments and more technical topics will be discussed, the participants must have a strong computer competency.
ADVANCED REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED to ensure that there are enough handouts and computers available. Please fill out the registration form below:
Once your registration is processed, you will receive an acknowledgement email. If a class that you requested is full, you will be notified and be given the opportunity to change the class time.
Note: Traditionally, these classes fill up quickly. Therefore, if there are any changes to your schedule, please communicate the changes via email or phone as soon as possible.
If there are any questions please contact me directly by phone or email.
