High resolution imagery

We fly frequently to continuously update our high-resolution aerial imagery. You can be absolutely confident that you’re working with the latest information. Our standard resolution is 7-10cm for metropolitan areas, but we often provide even higher resolutions for major events and natural disasters. Critically, we publishing the results within days of capture. High resolution images can also be downloaded for use in reports and presentations.

Timeline of past images

nearmap has been capturing images since 2009. We have published hundreds of surveys, covering hundreds of thousands of square kilometres, and they are all available via the nearmap MapBrowser Timeline. Use this Timeline to gain immediate insight into how a location has changed over time. Compare before and after images. Check the progress of development and assess repairs.

Measurement Tools

Our comprehensive suite of measurement tools makes remote site-inspection quick, easy, and incredibly rewarding. Choose from line, path, area and radius tools with in-line measurement display. Elevation profile information can also be generated for the paths and lines. All this without setting foot outside the office.

Data Overlays

Build a complete picture of location with our ever-growing selection of data overlays. For assessment, understand the context of the subject property ranging from zoning information to average income to crime statistics. Map overlays also include cadastral and property boundaries.

What our customers say

nearmap is a great underwriting tool that allows us to make more informed decisions due to its ability to view a current and historical image of the property. This reduces our chance of insuring properties that we would consider an unacceptable risk and allows us to apply specific conditions and charge an appropriate premium for risks we decide to insure.

Andrew, Insurance

The product was invaluable in assisting with projects involving floods in QLD and storm damage in NSW over the last 3 years - especially confirming whether a property has been damaged or not.

Ewan, Insurance

Love the 'historical' capability of the imagery, as well as the 'recency'. Great work!!
