The Associated Press is reporting that the company Imageos is attempting to digitally photograph 50 million buildings across the country, using a specially equipped van. When combined with GPS location information and aerial photographs, these new photos can be used to determine if buildings and homes have pools, fences or other notable features.

These images and information might be made available to public agencies such as police departments, but so far are primarily marketed for private businesses such as insurance companies.
