Enhance Your Engineering Project Workflow

Nearmap partners with infrastructure engineering software company Bentley Systems to help customers bring high-resolution, up-to-date aerial content into Bentley’s industry-leading solutions for roads and bridges, rail and transit, cities, and more.

Reduce the risk of making engineering decisions based on outdated, low-resolution, or incomplete datasets. Instead, maximise your accuracy and efficiency with the content engineers need for preliminary planning and design work in one easy, accessible digital package—including high-resolution aerial maps, rich 3D content, and AI-derived insights.

Enhance Your Project Basemap

Access the latest ground truth by bringing in multiple data sources early on in the planning and design phase, including aerial imagery.

Nearmap proactively updates its high-resolution vertical maps multiple times a year across across major urban areas in Australia, New Zealand, the United States and Canada.

Our 5.5-7.5cm GSD imagery is geo-referenced and can easily be brought in as a basemap inside Bentley products, such as OpenRoads Designer or MicroStation, as a raster attachment or via WMS.
