Another Deal for Pictometry
Pictometry International of Henrietta may rapidly be turning into the area's most interesting company. The company has pioneered a system for capturing aerial images at an angle and analyzing them with software. And now, the technology is spreading worldwide. Pictometry's partner in Europe, Blom ASA, has signed a deal with Great Britain's national mapping agency, known as Ordnance Survey. The agency has a rich history with origins back to conflicts in the late 1700s.
