About Nearmap Content

Nearmap Imagery are images containing metadata, generated from individual aerial photos that are automatically captured from an aircraft flying over very large survey areas of entire cities or regions, usually between 700km2 and 10,000km2.

Coverage

The questions our customers ask us most are: where do we fly, how often do we update our imagery and how accurate is our imagery.

At Nearmap, we regularly capture urban and regional areas across Australia, the United States, New Zealand and Canada multiple times a year, both leaf-on and leaf-off. All imagery is timestamped and delivered to you via the cloud in just a few days. Learn more about our coverage program, include where you can watch for updates.
