Nearmap's frequently updated imagery helped city's Public Works Department better monitor pavement conditions, save time on documentation of road repairs and reduce time spent in the field.
SOUTH JORDAN, Utah – August 21, 2018 – Nearmap, a location content provider, has partnered with the fast-growing city of Durham, North Carolina, helping it manage various projects including road maintenance, pothole patching to water sampling and degradation.
The city’s Public Works Department uses the high-resolution imagery to aid in managing all infrastructure data for the city, including the city's $16 million a year Stormwater Utility Fund.
Nearmap is able to supply the city of Durham with new captures every six months, this constant new content is able to be accessed through web-based cloud servers.
Having access to imagery back to 2014, we’re able to go back in time during the thrust of development and monitor it forward,” said Cherry. “With Nearmap, we’ve been able to update development processes and policies to support the revitalization of the downtown district as well as rapid city growth.”
By providing a web service map, stormwater billing customers can visualize their property with the impervious area mapped out and tied to their billing records. “We’re able to physically show them what their annual billing costs are for their property,” Cherry said.
Accurate and detailed customer billing has increased since partnering with Nearmap. The city of Durham currently has about 78,000 customers who have received improved and more detailed information during their billing process. This success is due to the ability to better visualize and measure property. Having the ability to access previous years of data and different times of seasons has also been able to contribute to this positive outcome.
