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.

Access to timely, high-resolution aerial photography helps Hansen maintain a competitive advantage

With almost all of Hansen’s work involving real-world places — including commercial buildings, schools, town centres and residential properties — access to timely, high-resolution aerial photography would help to maintain competitive advantage. They used Google Earth’s satellite imagery, but this provided only a fraction of the required detail, and aerial surveys supplied by local councils were often two or three years old. 
The Challenge at a glance

Gain critical information about the site and its surrounds and optimise site visits

  • With high resolution, up-to-date aerial images from Nearmap, the company no longer has to source the majority of its information manually.
  • Hansen has gained detailed site and environmental information to support development-project requirements and stay competitive.
The Solution at a Glance

Because nearmap technology is intuitive, hansen’s users—its entire headcount—are able to use the service without training

  • Increased planning efficiency and accuracy. Research with Nearmap not only avoids the pressure of arriving on site and having to absorb a whole mass of information, it also provides insights that wouldn’t otherwise be available.
  • Saved time and expanded understanding of project requirements by using Nearmap imagery and powerful, browser-based, visual-analytic tools.
  • Gained an easy-to-use, highly interactive geo-spatial information service that is constantly adding functionality to meet the needs of an expanding user base, and yet requires little to no user training
