Aerial Insights Helping Green City Government

Australia's City of Ryde, Sydney, analyzed 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.”
