RA member Nearmap has announced the expansion of its coverage footprint of aerial imagery to ~95% of the Australian population. Coverage now includes regional communities across Australia – from Exmouth, WA, Katherine in the NT, and across to Port Douglas in QLD, Yamba, NSW, and down to George Town, TAS.
Announcing the expanded capture program ahead of its annual customer event Nearmap NAVIG8 2022 – held on Tuesday 11 October – Daniel Paull, General Manager Australia and New Zealand, said:
“Nearmap has for the past 15 years been steadily growing our market-leading capture program to better support even more communities across Australia. Our customers, who rely on Nearmap to be their eye in the sky, have been asking us regularly to expand the reach of our captures, particularly to regional areas of the country.”
“Thanks to the capture efficiency and increased productivity of our new proprietary aerial camera system, HyperCamera3, and an increased investment in our market-best coverage program, we’ll be boosting our capture network over the coming year to include an additional ~23,000 sq kms of new, additional unique captured footprint. The 82 new locations that are being captured will mostly be in regional and rural areas of Australia. This will lift the overall, national coverage footprint of Nearmap to over 500,000 sq kms of annual coverage.”
