Civil + Structural Engineer Magazine highlights Nearmap's HD aerial imagery and its impact on optimizing workflow, improving collaboration, and informing smart engineering.
Engineers face endless external obstacles when it comes to their projects. Climate change, greener living alternatives, growing populations and many other factors play a key role into their work. These "obstacles" are playing a big role in how architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) firms work with their teams and the tools that they choose to use to get the job done. Aerial imagery as a service has helped AEC professionals measure, visualize and navigate through these projects.
High-resolution aerial maps integrated with GIS software save time, produce better estimates, mitigate risk, reduce site visits, lower costs, and improve initial planning. When accurately geolocated, the imagery elevates overlays and design layers to clearly communicate project details to clients."
Nearmap's ability to offer instant cloud-based access to our aerial imagery let's us stand out among the rest. MapBrowser allows businesses and individual contractors to measure, analyze and monitor change for your specific location.
Over time, the challenges that face the engineering industry will change. What does not change is how engineers can solve problems — through the use of the right tools and information. Aerial imagery has elevated design tools and software, empowering engineers to make intelligent and collaborative choices.”
