ROCHESTER, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 30, 2006--Pictometry International Corp., the worldwide leader in digital, aerial oblique imagery and measuring software, announced today the availability of its Rapid Response Program to all its new and existing county government customers.

The Rapid Response Program provides for the aerial photographing of hurricane affected areas at no additional charge to Pictometry's valued county customers. The company will also donate the use of its Pictometry Change Analysis(tm) software to these customers for their disaster responses as well as provide disaster image processing, delivery, and consulting services as part of its standard county agreements.

Pictometry's all digital, high-resolution oblique (at an angle, 3D-like view) aerial photos allow emergency management agencies and first responders to access up to 12 different views of any property, building, highway, or other feature in an area. Pictometry's Professional Software enables users to obtain measurements such as height, distance, elevation, and area directly from the aerial photographs, as well as overlay map data from ESRI's ArcGIS and ArcIMS. Pictometry Professional Software provides a variety of viewing options that can be easily customized for professional preferences. For GIS experts, Pictometry software can embed the oblique images directly inside the GIS software package or present the digital aerial photos of an area from an orthogonal perspective with matching oblique views from four to eight directions for simultaneous viewing. For public safety professionals, Pictometry Professional Software can display the images from a north view oblique perspective with other directional views, including the orthogonal (straight down), easily accessible at the touch of a button.

Pictometry Change Analysis(tm) enables end users to simultaneously view on a computer monitor, both before and after aerial photos of affected areas. This permits responding agencies to "virtually" tour entire areas and to analyze specific locations and properties impacted by natural or other disasters.

The company has a proven history of providing rapid deployment services to capture, process, and deliver its high-resolution aerial imaging databases to government agencies that require this level of service.
