Pictometry is a unique patented information system that combines aerial imaging with a software system called Electronic Field Study (EFS). While Pictometry libraries contain orthogonal (straight down) images like ordinary aerial imaging, over 80% of Pictometry's images are oblique (taken from angles) so that features can be easily seen in their entirety. This oblique imagery consists of 6-inch resolution, aerial photos taken at a 45 degree angle enabling any location to be viewed from 4 directions - at a bird eye's view.
