By using data services, base maps, Nearmap imagery, and third-party data, Shelby County is improving all aspects of public safety, including law enforcement, fire, and emergency medical services. Even other agencies are using the district’s imagery and GIS data.
Context and Currency
"There’s a certain context and currency you can get from Nearmap imagery that you simply can’t get from any other imagery products. Other agencies, such as the County Clerk and the Utility Company, are using our addressing data because Nearmap has helped enable us to be much more current."
Future projects with Nearmap
For the future, Zimmer and his team are implementing a new mapping application to plot 9-1-1 calls and plans to have Nearmap integrated into that solution.
