Expanding Oblique Aerial Imaging Services via Pictometry and AAMHatch

Pictometry International Corp., the worldwide leader in digital, aerial, oblique, geo-referenced imagery and measuring software systems, has signed a technology agreement with its licensee, AAMHatch of Australia which will expand the coverage area for Pictometry’s patented image capture process into 12 countries.

Under the agreement, AAMHatch – a leading Australian aerial survey and mapping company –has expanded its prior exclusive rights to utilize Pictometry’s image capture and processing technology and market image libraries and software in South Africa, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, East Timor, Brunei, Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia.

"We are very pleased to be able to expand our image capture technology into these new regions of the world,” said Robert Carroll, president of Pictometry’ International Division, noting that Pictometry’s image library covers Europe, North America, Australia, Asia and Africa. “AAMHatch has been a strong advocate of the Pictometry solution in its existing markets, including impressive collection schedule and important deliveries to key end-users,” said Carroll, adding, “AAMHatch is highly regarded for their superior technical capabilities in geospatial services and top-notch approach to customer satisfaction.”

AAMHatch is one of Pictometry’s four select international technology licensees. The company became a Pictometry licensee in 2005 and has since captured oblique imagery covering populated regions within Australia and New Zealand.

“The agreement will enable us to significantly expand ours service offering to both existing and new clients throughout South East Asia and South Africa,” said AAMHatch General Manager Brian Nicholls, noting that the ability to harness the power of Pictometry’s oblique imagery is becoming increasingly important to users of spatial information. “Pictometry imagery enables users to easily see, measure and interpret any point or object within the subject area from multiple view points,” added Nicholls. “Pictometry technology is revolutionary -- it really does offer a breakthrough for so many applications including asset management, urban planning, GIS and emergency response applications.”
