There is a quiet revolution happening in the GIS and aerial mapping industries. Fueled by the convergence of cloud computing, digital automation, and Internet distribution, this quiet revolution is creating unique opportunities to end dated legacies within the aerial and satellite mapping industries and to move into subscription aerial mapping.
Leading the way in the mapping as a service revolution is Nearmap. This Australian company has started to make waves in the U.S. by offering high-resolution, frequently updated aerial maps on a subscription basis. Nearmap bundles its aerial maps subscriptions with a host of software applications designed to help its customers gain an edge in the solar, construction, real estate, and government industries (among many others).
A big selling point for Nearmap is that they are able to serve industries where legacy (single on-demand) aerial mapping is not economically viable (such as in the solar industry) or any industry with an interest in a particular area over time (such as construction, real estate, government, etc).
