Australian imagery provider, nearmap ltd, recently launched its new nearmap Rail product – a service aimed at providing ports, mining and rail industries with a unique set of tools and ultra-high resolution aerial imagery to monitor existing rail corridors, as well as plan new ones.
“Nearmap Rail is our first step to broaden our customer focus by meeting the needs of specific verticals,” said nearmap’s managing director Simon Crowther.
Built on nearmap’s PhotoMaps technology platform, nearmap Rail combines measurement tools, information overlays, elevation profiles, and access to source photos with new technology enabling nearmap to frequently capture thousands of kilometres of ultra-high resolution imagery of multi-billion dollar critical infrastructure corridors, such as rail lines.
Nearmap customers in the port, mining and rail industries can inspect areas after extreme weather events, check the conditions of assets, plan new infrastructure, and make reliable decisions based on timely, browser-based visual analytics.
“No one company is providing reliable and timely visual analytics as much as nearmap, and the features which make nearmap great make nearmap Rail even better,” said Mr. Crowther. “By bringing the site to a client’s desktop nearmap Rail is effectively providing an end-to-end planning and maintenance solution that saves time and costly site visits as well as potentially billions of dollars in improved planning, asset management and change detection for critical infrastructure.”
