    • Webinar (see below)

    Unlock the Power of GIS & Aerial Imagery:

    Streamline your project workflows & improve planning

    Presentation Outline:

    Having access to real location intelligence helps you identify areas for development, pinpoint potential problem situation and track property assets over time and remotely. Aerial data helps better inform and guide decisions to eliminate project workflow inefficiencies, tighten project timelines, and can help save lives. In Government, the collaboration between aerial imagery and geospatial data is critical – it vastly improves the quality of life for all individuals occupying a given geography.


    In this webinar you’ll learn:

    • How using Nearmap’s aerial location content – 3D, ortho and oblique -- can empower your planning with smarter data
    • How using Nearmap’s data helps access location data in rural areas, track how new planning will affect the environment, neighborhood and local businesses, transportation & infrastructure
    • How you can boost your data-driven insights with integrations available for GIS, CAD, and other third party applications
