At Nearmap we are focused on (OK, obsessed with) delivering an accurate, current, high-resolution visualisation of what’s happening in your location. We call it the truth on the ground.
What goes into creating that seemingly simple snapshot of your on-site reality, though, goes far beyond point and click.
Sure, there’s a lab in our Sydney headquarters where GIS specialists, sensor technology experts, and vision systems engineers like to hang out, and a whole bunch of hardware and processing magic that comes out of our location intelligence pipeline. But we can’t do it alone — sometimes, we need to check in with the global geospatial community and take the pulse of the international trends and standards that are pushing geospatial technology to the next stage of growth.
That’s why we’re hopping a flight to Adelaide next week to get fresh inspiration at APAC’s biggest geospatial conference, Locate18. It’s an especially big year for Locate: they are combining forces with GeoSmart Asia for what promises to be a globe-shattering international geospatial pow wow.
If you’re planning to be at Locate this year, swing by our booth (#14) for a preview of our just-released wide-scale 3D reality capture of Australia’s major capital cities. You can also connect with our team at the Esri booth for tips on using Nearmap in ArcGIS.
If you’re not attending this year, no worries — we’ll be sharing content during the conference and post-event, so stay tuned.
