Get the Full Context

Post-catastrophe shows you what’s there today — while regularly updated surveys give you the full story to understand the true impact of damage. Nearmap captures fresh imagery across Australia up to six times annually, covering 90.5% of the population across more than 448,000 square kilometres. When combined with our pre-catastrophe captures of areas prone to severe weather, historical imagery provides a contextual snapshot of property conditions prior to an event — allowing informed decisions to calibrate your response.

A Trusted Source of Post-cat Insights

We’ve been proactively capturing the most significant weather events of the past decade, including the 2011 Brisbane floods and the unprecedented Black Summer bushfires of 2019/2020.

This disaster season alone, we’ve captured the Queensland hailstorm in Nov 2020, Wooroloo fires in Feb 2021, New South Wales floods in Mar 2021, and Cyclone Seroja in Apr 2021. Our proprietary camera systems — and patented processing workflow — means we capture wide areas at speed and push the imagery online rapidly, without compromising quality.

Nearmap provides us the solution we need to maximise our resources and provide the greatest benefit to our communities.
