CONNECTExplorer (formerly Pictometry Online)

The CONNECTExplorer is a web-based application that offers EagleView’s high-resolution aerial imagery gives organizations the finest level of detail to rapidly make crucial everyday decisions. EagleView imagery (formerly Pictometry) is captured with patented proprietary camera systems that enable you to see the world from multiple perspectives.

  • Resolution: Detail as fine as .75 inches ground sample distance—16x higher resolution than satellite
  • Coverage: 98% coverage of the United States population
  • Frequency: Regularly updated imagery to provide current and historical views

CONNECTExplorer allows the users to view and analyze high-resolution aerial imagery, including high-quality oblique and orthogonal images. The application offers useful functions such as measuring height and area of buildings, spaces, or even trees. The annotation details can be exported as CSV or KML files. The images can be exported as graphic files including JPEG, GIF, PNG, TIFF, GeoTIFF (Orthos only) which are generated in Zip file,  KMZ (LatLonQuad or LatLonBo), or PDFs. The exported aerial imagery can be integrated into any GIS software.
