Sanborn Oblique Analyst is a web-based oblique imagery viewer featuring a suite of tools designed for easy analysis of critical information in oblique imagery. The angles inherent to oblique imagery allow viewers to see not only the tops of objects, but they can see the sides as well, making all five views of objects (four-45 degree views and the nadir view) accessible.
Oblique Analyst is a valuable tool for users such as assessors and appraisers, with tools that perform a number of functions, such as: allowing viewers to select views by panning and zooming within the project area, zoom in and out with a slider bar, or to navigate in the imagery with the traditional hand cursor. The interface includes tools dedicated to accurate measurement of height, length and area, as well as tools for annotation and search features. To help users keep track of their exact location within the project area at all times, Oblique Analyst displays a built-in compass and an overview map. In addition, users can quickly locate specific addresses in any dataset using the Oblique Analyst’s addressing feature. Oblique Analyst software operates in a server environment and is accessed and utilized via a custom online viewer—it also can be published to a client network while allowing for integration with other software environments.
