Imagery Basics

Pictometry captured oblique and ortho imagery of the IU Bloomington Campus in early December 2006. The ortho dataset was processed using proprietary Pictometry ortho-rectifying algorithms with 2005 Indiana Digital Elevation Model data. The ortho imagery is projected in Indiana West State Plane coordinate system. Pictometry's orthophotography is available to the public without any usage restrictions.

Pictometry's oblique imagery is restricted to IU staff and faculty. To learn more about this dataset, please see this IU Knowledge Base article.
