What we had access to prior to Nearmap was typically outdated and/or the resolution was low quality. What we get with Nearmap is just unbelievable.

Managing growth through crystal clear imagery

One of the fastest growing communities in Chicago, the Village of Huntley realised there had to be a better way to visualise their town to meet its future needs.

A Visual Split Between Two Counties

Dealing with aerial content from two different counties, the Village of Huntley needed to find a way to locate and compare recent, quality imagery that could depict the entire area seamlessly.

Business Impact

A Better Way to View and Plan
“Nearmap imagery has been a lifesaver; we no longer have to deal with outdated and inconsistent imagery anymore” said Jason Irvin, Village of Huntley Assistant Director of Public Works and Engineering.

Utility Mapping
Utility mapping was also of high importance to Huntley, including a large watermain model project. "The utilisation of the high-resolution aerial imagery has reduced dependence on GPS surveys because features such as hydrants and manholes can be located easily which in turn, increases staff efficiency and reduces fieldwork," stated Irvin.

Remote Evaluation
“Nearmap has also been invaluable to use to verify work done on any property in the Village.  Being able to use the split screen comparison with differing years, it’s also possible to determine changes to a property over time. The oblique imagery is also helpful so we can see details on properties that may be obscured."
