We help businesses and government agencies gain deep location-based insights with premium geospatial content as a service

Nearmap is radically changing the landscape of aerial imagery in Australia, New Zealand, and the US. Since our founding in Perth in 2007, we’ve evolved from a small online startup to an ASX 300 technology company. We’re a next generation digital content provider offering businesses subscription-based access to high resolution aerial imagery, city-scale 3D data sets, and integrated geospatial tools.
 
Every day, Nearmap helps thousands of business users conduct virtual site visits for deep, data-driven insights — enabling informed decisions, streamlined operations, and robust cost savings. 
 
We’re inspired by the idea that location intelligence powered by current, clear aerial imagery should be accessible and affordable for all kinds of businesses and organisations.

We set out to make aerial imagery as accessible to businesses as spreadsheets and sticky notes

Nearmap was founded with one goal: to empower all kinds of businesses and organisations, no matter what size or industry, with up-to-date, richly detailed aerial imagery of their location-based projects across the globe. 
 
We believe the traditional way of accessing aerial imagery is holding businesses back: it’s outdated, expensive, and limiting. We want businesses to thrive with richer map content, better geodata tools, and deeper insights. We believe if we change the way people view the world, they can profoundly change the way they work.

Built for business

Our maps don’t discriminate. Whether you’re a sole trader or an international brand, a GIS engineer or a construction project manager, we believe you should have access to high quality, beautiful, easy-to-use aerial imagery. 

Always current

We publish fresh imagery of our coverage areas in the cloud multiple times each year, so you always have a current view of what’s really on the ground. 

Quality at scale

View the entirety of your work portfolio in reliably spectacular detail, across major urban and regional areas.

Insanely easy to use

Our cloud-based subscription model means you can access our imagery, along with a full suite of measurement and analysis tools, via our web app on mobile, tablet, or desktop — or integrate with leading GIS and CAD platforms. 

Illustrates a changing landscape

We are one of the ten largest aerial survey companies in the world by annual data collection volume, and offer a 10-year imagery archive that enables you to perform advanced change detection. 

Historically searchable

Our searchable historical imagery archive allows you to view multiple captures for your locations of interest, and conduct side-by-side image analysis.
