We are the first company to commit to capturing the major towns and cities in the UK and Ireland at this incredibly high resolution, and the first committed to doing so on an annual basis!

The highly detailed digital representation of the built environment that CityView provides and the currency of the data, enables our clients to do so much more with both the Aerial imagery and the information derived from it (the Where!). Customers all over the globe will benefit from huge savings in time and effort, as well as constantly developing new ways to use digital data in place of 'boots on the ground'.

Increasingly, more and more Public and Private sector organisations are using higher-definition, feature rich Aerial imagery for applications such as:
mapping and managing street assets
developing and maintaining properties (especially the condition of roofs which have historically been difficult and relatively risky to assess)
more efficiently delivering Utility services
planning renewable energy such as Wind and Solar farms
CityView data enables users to do all of this remotely, reducing and/or removing the need for time-consuming and costly site visits. The 5cm data provides a much richer list of features - road markings, street furniture and assets, property boundaries etc that are clearly visible and able to be mapped to extremely high levels of accuracy. The images below demonstrate the difference in detail between 12.5cm and 5cm resolution.

As higher resolution Geospatial data and solutions become more commercialised and more easily available, Getmapping is partnering with leading companies across a wide range of industries to help unlock powerful and innovative new applications.
