The Jamestown City Council unanimously approved an agreement with EagleView Review Monday, April 4, for the content, services and software licenses related to orthomosaic and oblique imagery.

The City Council also approved a $2,100 payment that is due upon signing the agreement by April 15.

An agreement needed to be signed by April 15 so an imagery capture could be done of all structures and buildings in Jamestown before leaves are fully grown on trees, which make it more difficult to get the imagery, said John Wenande, regional technical manager with EagleView Technologies, which owns EagleView Review.

EagleView’s website states EagleView Reveal is a portfolio of high-resolution aerial imagery derived from unique image capture and processing systems pioneered by EagleView, formerly Pictometry International Corp.

The software can be used by multiple departments outside of City Hall as long as there is internet access. Wenande said the software allows city employees to take measurements on structures such as houses and city infrastructure. The software can also draw a buffer line that shows what properties will be affected by city projects.
