PurVIEW is an integrated image display and viewing plug-in software package that incorporates stereoscopic viewing technology for ESRI ArcGIS 9 (or later version). Essentially, PurVIEW is a photogrammetry-based data capture workstation that extend the ArcGIS environment. It converts Arc- desktops into precise stereo-viewing windows for geo-referenced aerial or space-borne imagery. Digitizing features directly yields positional accuracy comparable with photogrammetric mapping.
Using ArcMap, geodatabase contents can be directly accessed and reviewed superimposed on standard geo-referenced 3-dimensional image models, revealing errors and omissions, or natural changes.
PurVIEW's creators, International Systemap, are working with ESRI to develop seamless software integration for the 2010 release of ArcGIS 9.4.
