Most professional users are aware of the uses of vertical aerial imagery, BlomOBLIQUE™ is oblique aerial imagery taken with an angle of approx. 45º, allowing users to visualise the facades of the buildings. Oblique images are easier to interpret by the non-professional user.
Georeferenced oblique imagery extends the benefits of traditional vertical aerial imagery by providing a unique perspective view of a locality, allowing users to:
- Improve the identification of obscure assets and facilities (e.g. lamp-posts) which are difficult to distinguish on traditional vertical imagery
- The ability to measure height, length, elevation & area of features directly from imagery.
- Integrate vector data over the oblique imagery.
- Data comes with its own viewer application (BlomWEB / BlomDESKTOP), SDK or GIS plug-in
BlomOBLIQUE has been developed to complement existing vertical aerial imagery, rather than replace it. Blom has captured every urban centre in Western Europe with a population of 50,000 inhabitants or more. This is the most comprehensive and detailed imagery database available in Europe
