Vexcel Announces Complimentary Access to High-Resolution Imagery in Australia and New Zealand
Good news for organisations in Australia and New Zealand. Below is a news release sent to media about offering free access to Vexcel Viewer. We are also announcing later this week at Locate 2023 in Adelaide. If you’re at the conference, swing over to Vexcel booth to learn more.
Vexcel Data Program announced today free access to aerial imagery in Australia and New Zealand through its web-based platform, Viewer. This no-cost access provides government and commercial users with highly accurate, high-resolution imagery of major metro areas such as Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch. Organisations in Australia and New Zealand are eligible to participate in this free offering.
Providing aerial data to end users in Australia and New Zealand at zero cost improves a user’s ability to solve some of the most pressing problems of today with enhanced visualisation and analysis tools. This foundational experience with Vexcel imagery helps drive more accurate and informed decision-making, such as remote inspection of assets, monitoring change at a location, detecting surface details, and so much more. The readily accessible data is available immediately and supports multiple industries, from government to construction, landscaping to solar, roofing to utilities and beyond.
Vexcel collects high-resolution aerial imagery across urban areas in Australia and New Zealand on a regular basis, covering 80% of the population in Australia and 56% of the population in New Zealand. Multiple imagery products, including current and historical collections, are available within Vexcel’s Viewer platform, such as:
- Oblique: a 45-degree imagery product, helping users see properties from all angles (north, south, east, west) at 7.5cm resolution
- TrueOrtho: a top-down view of structures and properties without building lean and no visible seamlines at 7.5cm resolution
- Multispectral: a near-infrared product delivered in colour-infrared, highlighting vegetation and impervious surfaces at 7.5cm resolution
In addition, end users will have access to multiple tools found within Viewer, giving them greater ability to gain even more valuable information beyond visualisation. Some of these tools include:
- Measurement and drawing tools: find the area or length of a specific building or property
- Compass tool: switch between all views at a particular location with the ease of a button
- Before and after slider: easily detect change on a property
- Import: bring your CSV files and geospatial data into Viewer to overlay important map information
- And more!
Vexcel captures its aerial imagery with award-winning UltraCam sensors, manufactured by Vexcel Imaging, which are radiometrically and geometrically calibrated to collect the highest quality aerial imagery in the market. Plus, Vexcel matches its aerial imagery against ground control points, resulting in highly accurate location intelligence that provides a complete understanding of a property and its condition.
Beyond the free visualisation, Vexcel also provides a pathway for end users to upgrade their experience as needed, whether through access to additional tools and property information in Viewer, exporting data, or programmatic access via APIs. Additional platform integrations and channels include Image Services for ArcGIS, Web Map Tile Service, and MapControl SDK.
