Webinar: Pixels, Points, and Precision: Innovative Approaches to Age-Old Challenges

Street-level imagery has evolved into something so much more than a static photograph. This session will focus on high resolution (360-degree by 180-degree) street-level imagery and LiDAR, as well as the ability to visualize, validate, and analyze (measure) valuable data points within GIS. Multiple case studies from Prince George’s County, Maryland will examine the collection project that has benefited multiple departments/agencies across the County. 

Prince George’s County, Maryland’s Office of Information Technology – GIS division (OIT-GIS) and The Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission’s Planning Department (MNCPPC) were looking to provide County agencies street level imagery that would allow the identification of addresses and assets along the County’s roads with the ability to integrate into their existing GIS software platforms. The County contracted with Cyclomedia for the collection of nearly 5,000 miles of street-level imagery, LiDAR, and Enterprise Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). In addition to the MNCPPC’s use cases, agencies like Public Safety, Public Works and Transportation, and Planning departments can: remotely investigate addresses; validate, measure, and extract data in a GIS format; inspect the County’s assets within the right-of-way; and improve the efficacy of their current workflows without ever leaving the office.
