The Sanborn Map Company says with its new Mezurit.com service subscribers will be able to accurately measure anything captured in the company’s aerial imagery database. Mezurit provides online access to oblique aerial imagery and easy-to-use software tools for measurement and analysis of imagery from Sanborn’s rapidly growing collection of U.S. cities.
Subscribers can access data for an entire city or just a small area of interest. Once the desired area is selected, after purchase with a credit card, bank transfer or purchase order, the Mezurit online viewer allows users to instantly glean critical information from all five imagery views. Subscribers can choose a period of time that works for any schedule or budget—an hour, a day, a week, a month or even a year.
High-res Mezurit oblique imagery is created by using five aerial cameras to capture nadir (straight down) and four 45° oblique angle views. To ensure positional accuracy, images are acquired from aircraft equipped with GPS and inertial navigation systems, allowing Sanborn to aero-triangulate all five views. Imagery is then combined with elevation data to produce highly accurate oblique imagery datasets.
