Nearmap launches suite of AI products

By on 2 June, 2020

Australian aerial imagery specialist Nearmap has announced a series of new data products it calls Nearmap AI.

These new datasets are the outputs of a series of machine learning models being applied to Nearmap’s high resolution capture databases, representing a new offering in the firm’s portfolio.

The firm’s announcement signals the availability at of these products at commercial scale, a milestone that sets the firm apart among imagery providers, according to CEO and managing director, Dr. Rob Newman.

“Nearmap AI is a product innovation breakthrough which has been in the making for some time now. What’s unique about it is that it combines the best of both worlds — data analytics and high-definition, frequently-updated aerial imagery,” he said.

“When you add Nearmap tools for measurement, search and location identification, businesses get a solution that will exponentially help scale up their insight gathering efforts, with richer and more accurate data.”

Nearmap seems to have users in utilities, insurance and local government in mind with this offering, where it sees demand for the new change detection and analytic services to enhance planning, public safety, valuations and property assessment applications.

“We believe Nearmap AI will profoundly change the way we plan, build and maintain our cities and infrastructure today,” said Newman.

“With this combination of data analytics and high-definition aerial imagery, local governments, for instance, will benefit from a birds-eye view and automatic analysis of their cities’ evolution, to inform their planning and construction efforts.”

The new offering will integrate with existing subscriptions to other products and be made available through Nearmap’s Mapbrowser platform.
