PCI Geomatics has successfully delivered its high-speed and automated Historical Airphoto Processing (HAP) system to Nationwide Environmental Title Research (NETR).

“The HAP system has really reduced our project turnaround time,” said Brett Perry, President of NETR. “Our operations have become more streamlined, while we increase productivity at a reduced expense.”

Founded in 1993, NETR provides real estate research and information services nationwide and is the owner of the HistoricAerials.com website. HistoricAerials.com has acquired over 1000 terabytes of aerial photography and created a proprietary database of orthorectified imagery displaying historical aerial imagery of land and buildings throughout the United States.  The distinction of this website and its technology is to provide remote sensing capabilities to position a given location through time on orthophotography and orthorectified maps.  This allows for analysis, comparison, change detection, as well as identification, measurement, property layout, and obtaining geospatial coordinates of features that no longer exist.

The HAP workflow leverages multi-pass processing and automated ground control and tie point collection, producing an accurate math model that can be used to produce seamless ortho-mosaics from hundreds or thousands of airphotos; even without camera calibration files. The system is built with PCI’s proven Geomatica technology and can be scaled to meet all requirements for historical airphoto correction.

“It doesn’t matter if we are working with 10 or 10,000 images, our workflow remains consistent and the results are excellent,” said Jeff Teasley, Director of HistoricAerials.com. “Using the HAP system has allowed us to grow our online repository of historical imagery to stay ahead of demand and better serve our clients.”
