Aerial Photography for Utilities & Telecommunication

ELWOOD, IL | TAKEN: JUN. 8, 2017

Remote Oversight Lowers Risk

You're responsible for endless miles of high tension wire, buried assets, or other critical nodes.
Reduce utility risk with incredibly detailed, high resolution aerial photos.

Don't Walk the Lines

Inspection crews were normally required on-site. Now you can remotely scan hundreds of miles in a fraction of the time, and without all the risk. High resolution overhead maps help you ensure transmission continuity, detect broken insulators, and inspect tower integrity. More importantly, remote infrastructure surveys help you actively deploy crews when and where they’re most needed, serving the public good. Read the solution brief

Track Location Assets

With current aerial photography, utility companies and public works more effectively track large utility inventories – all discoverable through high performance database search. Mapping location assets reduces downtime through better PM scheduling, and leads to faster service dispatch and deployment. See areas recently captured

Actively Prevent Storm Damage

Consistent aerial maps contrasting leaf-off with leaf-on imagery show where trees pose the greatest potential risk to power lines or other infrastructure. In turn, improved vegetation management reduces public risk and proactively lowers the number and severity of power outages. Watch our on-demand webinar

Plan with Greater Accuracy

While Nearmap’s high resolution geolocated imagery is not considered survey grade, it’s so close that utility risk companies are effectively using it to track underground infrastructure. That same precision extends above-ground, where location planning, construction management, line routing, and easements all benefit from crystal clear imaging. Learn more about Nearmap products

Data Layers Shine with Great Imagery

GIS output quality can be severely limited by poor satellite imagery. Make each layer come to life and communicate more effectively. Access PhotoMaps™ natively within the ArcGIS Marketplace for seamless Esri integration. And when it’s time to pitch that mega-project, your standout presentation with clear and compelling imagery increases your chances of success. Learn more about our Esri integration
