Plan with precision through virtual visits

Oct 2022

Accelerate the planning stage with virtual site visits and data gathering for actionable designs using on-demand aerial imagery content.

Oct 2022

Doing jobs from a distance continues to be our norm as the pandemic ebbs and flows. Facing more uncertainty from ongoing lockdowns, many organisations are getting creative — and learning to pivot. Visiting sites virtually, gathering critical information from a distance and verifying data remotely is more common than ever. With aerial content that’s available on-demand, accelerate the planning stage and turn your concepts into actionable designs without delay.


The planning phase sets the stage for the remainder of your project, poor planning can result in a poor outcome, and that’s why staying informed matters. But conducting multiple site visits across the lifecycle to gather data isn’t always feasible, especially during recent times. With cloud-based, remote access to high-resolution aerial imagery — updated several times per year — project managers, planners and designers can conduct virtual walkthroughs, right through our web application MapBrowser.
Tools for annotation can also keep the right team members informed within one central location, allowing you to highlight those features that may require a closer look when it’s time for a physical inspection — avoiding costly hiccups that could potentially arise when faced with low visibility into site conditions.


Visualising requires accuracy. Accuracy helps to ensure that you’re meeting objectives, delivering on your promise and most importantly, understanding the short-term and long-term impact of your build.
3D content from Nearmap, allows you to fully immerse yourself into entire cityscapes, offering up the latest context surrounding both the site and its surroundings.  Seamless integrations into industry-leading GIS and CAD applications — like Esri, Autodesk and Bentley — also allow you to simulate certain scenarios to view the potential affects of a planned build. For example, are you planning a tall skyscraper? It’s absolutely essential that you consider how this affects the surrounding urban and natural environments, from shadow casting to line-of-sight.


Monitoring the impact of the choices you make is crucial to the success of a project. With a rich catalogue of imagery dating back to 2009, gain the clearest insight into how your environment is evolving, from concept to completion. And with updates occurring up to 6 times per year*, forget outdated imagery. This means lessening the need for costly bespoke flyovers, and accessing multiple views across the entire scope of a project, on-demand and within days of capture. Don’t spend time worrying about when you’ll get the next update, Nearmap has you covered — year round.
