Modern Home Builder explains how contractors are doing more work remotely with high-res aerial photography.

Alan Dorich, senior editor for Modern Home Builder Magazine, recently interviewed Nearmap about its aerial imagery service, which allows small businesses to instantly view high-resolution photos of residential and commercial properties. Land developers, general contractors, and specialty subcontractors spend hours of time traveling to sites to plan, inspect measure, and estimate work. 

Nearmap's MapBrowser provides instant access to updated photo maps through the web browser on desktop or mobile devices. Images are several times clearer and more up-to-date than satellite images (i.e. think Google Earth or Bing Maps). With MapBrowser, contractors can pan and zoom to inspect ground conditions or features in detail, or use built-in measurement tools to quickly estimate material costs. They can also annotate and export imagery to communicate back with their clients.

In their interview, Nearmap's senior director of marketing, Tim Frank, noted:

It takes time if you’re using traditional estimating methods. If you’re trying to get square footage with a top-down view, you would do that within one to two minutes with Nearmap. And, your [measurement] is within inches of accuracy. You could be saving thousands of dollars, depending on the size of the project. That clearly adds up.”
