Q: Regarding the Pictometry photo in the Pre-Plan, is that via an internet connection? Our county has oblique images from Pictometry, however the database cannot be copied – users must log in to the County’s network to access. How does the software access these images?
A: Pictometry can be acquired through a public connection to Microsoft’s Bing, however the software requires local access to the Pictometry repository to view your local versions and acquire access to the Pictometry tools (such as height, area, elevation, etc.) The software cannot read Pictometry through its web-tile interface; however it is possible to remote mount the Pictometry repository so that the computer believes the files to be local.
