What our customers say


“Using Timeline, we can inspect images of the same site, months or years apart, on a single screen, and have a good idea of the impact on water-ways, for example, or native vegetation

Shellie Humphries | Senior Environment Protection Officer at IDU | EPA

“The benefit of Nearmap is that, when we’re creating detailed planning-permit applications, we can get critical information about the site by going back there, virtually, as many times as we need to.”
