Pictometry Announces Seamless Integration With AutoCAD(R) Civil 3D(R)
Direct Access to Imagery and Data via Pictometry(R) Connect(TM)
Enhances Productivity Across Infrastructure Design, Build and
Management Applications 
ROCHESTER, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 --  Pictometry
International Corp. -- the inventor of measurable, aerial oblique
imagery and analytics tools -- announces the launch of the
Pictometry(R) Integration for Autodesk(R) AutoCAD(R) Civil 3D(R) 2013
and 2012 products. Users can now seamlessly access high resolution
geo-referenced aerial imagery directly within the AutoCAD Civil 3D
workspace, enabling them to visualize and take measurements of
real-world field environments, helping reduce the need for field
"Pictometry saw an opportunity to greatly improve how customers
managing critical infrastructure can access and utilize aerial
imagery of their networks and assets," said Jim Smyth, chief
marketing officer of Pictometry. "This latest integration of our
intelligent imagery into AutoCAD Civil 3D empowers infrastructure
professionals to quickly, easily and intuitively blend GIS, CAD and
real-world visualization into a single productive workflow." 
With Pictometry imagery and data a click away inside AutoCAD Civil 3D
2013, asset data such as transmission and distribution networks, oil
and gas pipelines, and lease parcel boundaries can be accurately
displayed on top of dimensional imagery, providing a powerful way to
verify and validate spatial data. The imagery is precisely
geo-synchronized with the user's drawing file, automatically
overlaying GIS and CAD data -- allowing Pictometry's imagery to be
used as a visually intelligent backdrop for creating new content, as
well as editing and attributing existing content. The new integration
enables professionals to use data contained within the Pictometry
solution, including parcel boundaries, elevation contours and road
labels, over proprietary oblique and orthogonal imagery.  
In addition, Pictometry has added an integration within AutoCAD(R)
Map 3D 2013, complementing its existing integration with AutoCAD(R)
Map 3D 2012, which was released last year. 
Both AutoCAD Civil 3D and AutoCAD Map 3D integrations utilize the new
Pictometry Connect(TM) platform which allows users to insta
access Pictometry's 2.1 petabyte library of oblique and orthogonal
imagery, as well as accurate geo-spatial content. With
professional-quality aerial imagery being stored in the cloud to
ensure world-class management and updates, AutoCAD Map 3D and AutoCAD
Civil 3D customers can eliminate the IT burden of self-managing
aerial imagery and data on their own servers, while enabling simpler
enterprise-wide access to imagery. They can also securely upload
their own location-based data sets to Pictometry Connect, which are
then layered on the images alongside proprietary measurement and
analytics tools to deliver unparalleled visual insights. 
"With Pictometry Connect, we are able to update our vast image
library and make that content available to customers more quickly
than ever," Smyth said. "As we continue to capture imagery of
infrastructure corridors, entire counties and even post-disaster
environments, our customers will have faster and easier access to
that information. Civil 3D and Map 3D users will benefit from the
latest imagery and accurate data to make faster, more informed
decisions -- saving time and reducing costs."
