Aerial Insights Helping Green City Government

City of Ryde analysed tree canopy coverage within its ward boundary using Nearmap historic imagery and machine learning.

"Not only do we have the up-to-date aerial imagery, we also gained access to the Nearmap catalogue of historical imagery and it’s all been captured using the same method, so it is consistent, which is perfect for analysis."

Measuring Tree Canopy to Manage Green Space

The first goal was to measure tree canopy coverage across the area. Then this local government realised there was 10+ years of consistent, high-quality historic Nearmap imagery, right at their fingertips.

Consistent High-Quality Data

Protecting and enhancing the City of Ryde’s natural and urban environments calls for a quantifiable approach, such as creating a benchmark for the tree canopy across the entire Local Government Area.

High-Quality Imagery

Measuring what’s there now is only part of the story. Reliable benchmarks rely consistent, quality data.
