Using Pictometry's ActiveX control, third-party software companies can now integrate their own customized version of Pictometry's software tools, similar to Pictometry's own Electronic Field Study (EFS) software without having to leave their native application environment. This gives users access to Pictometry's software functionality in a third-party application. The company has been working with numerous technologies and business partners to test, implement and deploy its ActiveX control in other geospatial-related systems. One of the first set of solutions where Pictometry has successfully integrated its ActiveX control is in ESRI's suite of GIS products that include ArcIMS and ArcGIS. The control enables third-party software vendors and system integrators to embed Pictometry's oblique imagery and analytical tools directly into end-user applications.
