The BBC News IT show this week highlights some applications of pictometry imagery. You may not be able to play the video outside of the UK I’m afraid, but a great PR piece from Pictometry.
Interesting to see how imagery is used as an alternative to large scale topographic data where it is not available.. However.. there is massive as yet untapped potential for such imagery when it is combined with intelligent feature data, so that the user can find out what they are looking at without interpretation.
