State and local governments can realize new capabilities in their use of aerial technologies when they harness the combined power of Nearmap and GIS technology from GTG
SALT LAKE CITY, April 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Leading aerial imagery company Nearmap announced today a partnership with Geographic Technologies Group (GTG), experts in the planning, design, procurement and implementation of geospatial technology to create smarter solutions for local government agencies throughout the United States and Canada.
“Our range of high-resolution aerial content — from Vertical to Oblique, 3D and AI — integrates easily with GTG’s applications and acts as a valuable component to the strategic planning services offered by GTG,” said Karl Terrey, Director, Global Alliances at Nearmap. “Our imagery is refreshed multiple times per year and when combined with GTG’s technology allows cities, towns, counties and state governments to make decisions based on conditions in their communities in near-real-time, at a fraction of the cost.”
GTG is one of the world’s leading local government Geographic Information Systems (GIS) companies and is committed to advancing the science of location intelligence and geospatial technology. The company specializes in GIS services that include strategic planning, GIS consulting, comprehensive data services, mapping services, software development, GIS training, and on-call GIS support. They also provide ongoing GIS maintenance for villages, towns, cities, counties, multi-regional agencies, public works and public utilities, water districts, and Native American and Alaskan Tribes.
Nearmap is a global leader in high-resolution aerial imagery. Since 2019, the company has released a number of innovations designed to help government agencies garner greater insights from aerial imagery and the use of location intelligence. Nearmap’s 3D imagery provides local governments the ability to quickly export custom areas for use in platforms such as Esri, Bentley Systems, and Autodesk. Nearmap AI enables governments to instantly identify attributes about properties required for the appraisal process and Nearmap AI Packs enable users to determine the type of access made visible in MapBrowser for items such as impervious surfaces, vegetation and solar panels at citywide scale.
Nearmap’s library of aerial imagery provides some of the most accurate imagery available with updates occurring up to three times a year throughout more than 430 markets in North America, including 700 urban and regional areas accounting for more than 70 percent of the United States population.
“Our goal has always been to break through boundaries, solve problems, and introduce a new kind of decision support for our clients,” said James Kelt, VP of Corporate Software at GTG. “We began using Nearmap’s aerial imagery a few years ago because we recognized it as a way to differentiate ourselves and push the envelope. Our clients love the imagery and the more we worked with Nearmap, the more it made sense to find a way to partner so we could provide this added value to all of our customers.”
