nearmap.com Captures Scale of Western Australia’s Development

The images provide a first look at major development hot spots in the region — which include projects at Barrow Island, Karratha, Dampier, Burrup Peninsula, Port Hedland. Roeboume, Cape Lambert and Broome — and are the most up-to-date, highest resolution PhotoMaps available.

nearmap.com CEO, Simon Crowther, said: “It’s well known that there’s a huge amount of development going on in WA but it’s not until you see the images that you really start to appreciate the scale. For projects in extremely remote places like the Gorgon project, nearmap.com’s images offer one of the only feasible means to view the developments. With so many projects currently underway in WA. we’re getting interest from developers and government who want to use our technology to closely monitor and report on their multi-billion dollar projects,” Crowther said.

nearmap.com’s annual license model enables companies to access the most recent maps of a particular licensed region, which is a major benefit for developers and governments managing rapidly progressing projects.
