Overcome unprecedented challenges with aerial imagery
Businesses today face unprecedented disruptions that can only be solved by innovative solutions.
We’ve encountered extreme challenges of late, be that natural disasters, energy outages, or the COVID-19 pandemic. These events create bottlenecks throughout a business that can threaten its survival. Overcoming these monumental obstacles requires the incorporation of tools that enable new paths forward for business operations to continue in motion.
For many, getting together with their team to work onsite is almost impossible due local pandemic restrictions — increasing project timelines. This is where Nearmap aerial imagery can help. With high-resolution, up-to-date captures, projects can be planned, managed, and maintained from any connected device. Better yet, the entire team will have access to the same data, eliminating communication silos that would otherwise stall a worksite’s momentum.
Let’s discuss other ways aerial imagery can help firms innovate and win — even when dealing with difficult challenges.
Building Innovation Modeling for Project Planning
Aerial imagery is more than a top-down view of the world, it provides invaluable data that can impact business decisions. With Nearmap, our aerial imagery is enhanced via our proprietary camera system capturing the landscape in vertical, oblique, and 3D — enabling building innovation modeling (BIM).
BIM provides a 3D view of your built environment to help visualize the impact of decisions before you break ground on your project. This helps prevent costly mistakes and reduces the chance of delays. Integrating a geographic information system (GIS) with BIM takes this a step further by giving architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) firms access to greater insights that can mitigate risks, save time, and simplify processes.
Smarter Project Bidding with Aerial Maps
Nearmap services enable customers to make more informed decisions before bidding on a project. Aerial imagery and geospatial intelligence are changing the prospecting process with tools for the AEC sector to view sites, take measurements, and estimate costs — all without having to visit in person. These capabilities give our customers a competitive advantage as they can easily determine the projects worth going for and provide the features to build winning proposals.
Accuracy You can See
Working with aerial imagery is only successful when the images are current and clear. Nearmap not only provides up-to-date captures in leading resolution, we also have a historic catalog of imagery dating back to 2014. Now you can track temporal change over time, giving your team additional worksite data. All this location intelligence ensures that what you see on your screen is what you’ll find onsite.
Innovation for Success
Aerial imagery gives AEC firms the accurate insight needed to make better decisions, submit fast and accurate bids, and win projects. At each stage, there’s risk. But by thinking smart, adopting agile business practices, and applying appropriate technologies, you can take a greater hold over events out of your control. It will help you reduce leakage, increase the number of projects you deliver on time and on budget, and improve your project profit margin.
