Electronic Field Study (EFS) is the original desktop solution for viewing and interacting with Pictometry Intelligent Images. EFS translates complex geospatial information into useful visual data using five pre-defined views and an array of easy-to-use navigational tools.
Server Edition™ provides an innovative solution for jurisdictions that need to host their own imagery because of security or connectivity challenges. Once installed on an organization’s server, users can access Pictometry images using a web browser. Users can easily navigate large quantities of image data and enjoy the ability to view, measure and export. A secure web administrative interface is included to help manage users, maps and GIS layers.
This progressive technology provides visual intelligence and analytical tools delivered in the time frame needed for success. Whether it is necessary in a matter of hours or days, EagleView® Technologies is the only company to deliver essential pre- and post-event imagery on your timeline, utilizing Pictometry® technology. Access Technology allows response teams to assess and plan time-sensitive strategies in disaster or non-disaster scenarios from their desktop, saving critical time when it is needed most.
Imagery is captured immediately after a catastrophic event and integrated into a rugged Esri® ArcGIS server deployment so damage assessment teams can respond quickly. Delivery is within hours of capture.
Post-event imagery is available through our cloud-based CONNECT™ solution within 2-3 days of the event to assist in damage evaluation and recovery.
Imagery is captured, processed and delivered after an expedited quality assurance check in 10-14 days.
Whether assessing property, maintaining the integrity of a pipeline or managing right-of-way encroachments, staying on top of the constant change created by building construction, demolitions and permits has traditionally been time-consuming and resource intensive. ChangeFinder™ helps by providing a consolidated data set that tells you exactly what has changed rather than just overloading your team with more data to sort through. Changes can be validated right from the desktop.
GIS polygon outlines are created for analysis of changes in size and shape. These building outlines are compared with imagery and changes are flagged for verification and analysis. This technology can also compare existing building outlines to new Pictometry imagery to find changes. Assessors can:
- Dramatically reduce the time and expense of field assessments
- Increase revenue by discovering previously undetected improvements
- Improve communications during the appeal process using imagery
- Detect the presence of swimming pools with the optional pool finding capability
Utilities and pipeline companies can:
- Map features of interest to create an accurate baseline
- Compare existing polygons to newly acquired imagery to determine the status of the structures and to identify new ones
- Provide a geo-referenced data set to validate previous analyses
- Report new structures identified as a potential concern such as a new four-story building
Critical 360 allows you to view building interiors, capturing 360-degree, panoramic imagery simultaneously with a LiDAR scan to produce up-to-date, geo-referenced floor plans and images. With a few keystrokes you’ll be panning across a room from wall to wall, floor to ceiling, walking through doors and down hallways.
- Provides 9-1-1 and first responders with enhanced situational awareness in crisis situations
- Search, query and locate resources and structural details
- Customize, update and share visual information with multiple users

EagleView uses Pictometry technology to deliver a cost-effective vegetation clearance management solution to utility companies and industry-leading engineering partners that satisfies technical objectives.
High-resolution oblique and vertical images are captured along the transmission corridor and synchronized with a medium-density LiDAR point cloud. Since most utilities now have complete PLS-CADD models, a medium-density LiDAR solution coupled with metric oblique imagery provides the ideal balance of accurate data versus price and delivers a cost-effective vegetation managements solution.
The Pictometry PentaView Sensor System is comprised of custom-designed, fully calibrated photogrammetric lenses and a recently updated 29 megapixel CCD sensor. This latest configuration is specifically designed to support corridor mapping applications and produces, in a single pass, both LiDAR data and high-resolution imagery of unmatched clarity. The increased swath width coverage that comes from the use of fixed-wing aircraft presents a significant operational advantage over a rotary platform, lessening the financial impact to the customer.
