Colorado Springs, Colo., July 15, 2014—The benefits of viewing and working with oblique aerial imagery now are available to users with the latest versions of ArcGIS for Desktop geographic information system (GIS) software. The Sanborn Map Company’s Oblique Analyst tool lets users leverage the multiple-view advantages of the company’s Oblique Imagery Solutions like never before.
Sanborn’s Oblique Imagery Solutions products comprise aerial imagery that gives users multiple views of any location. Sanborn captures the imagery using five separate state-of-the-art cameras at once, resulting in the highest quality oblique data available today. The imagery is georeferenced and delivered to users in a format that makes it easy to view, analyze and use effectively.
Oblique Analyst presents all five views of a building or structure—nadir and four 45° oblique angles—and provides the ability to select any view as the primary one. A built-in compass feature lets users know the current view as they pan and zoom around a project area. Oblique Analyst also pinpoints the project area on an overview map, and its addressing feature quickly locates specific addresses. Oblique Analyst is included with the purchase of Sanborn’s Oblique Imagery Solutions products.
