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.
