Why do businesses use location intelligence?
Government departments at all levels rely on location intelligence for a host of applications including remote property inspections and assessments, urban change forecasting, planning and monitoring large-scale infrastructure projects, and as a tool to promote transparency between stakeholders. For example, Southeast Michigan Council used Nearmap high-resolution aerial imagery to find and catalogue thousands of previously unknown buildings in the region, which gave a more accurate picture of urban trends. This meant the council had increased intelligence to define the region’s future land-use policy.
Insurance and financial services
When it comes to money matters, timeliness is crucial — this is why many in the insurance and finance industries rely on consistently updated location intelligence from Nearmap as their source of truth. Up-to-date location intelligence helps companies with risk management, underwriting, renewals, and claims. With access to historical and current data, the assessment process can be done smoothly and remotely.
Architecture, engineering, and construction
Site surveying can be one of the most costly and time-consuming parts of any infrastructure project. Location intelligence allows stakeholders at all levels of a project to access tools for remote surveying and site monitoring. Accurately measure building dimensions, vegetation, ground features, and more before you or your team even step on site. Being able to detect change and track progress is of major benefit when forecasting urban growth and making informed decisions for the future.
