SOUTH JORDAN, Utah, Nov. 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The high-resolution aerial imagery of Nearmap can now be used with the best-in-class asset management tools of Cityworks. The two companies announced a partnership today that joins lifelike, 2D and 3D, HD-quality visuals with a GIS-centric system that helps organizations oversee assets, maintenance, permits and licenses for public asset management.
Now cities who are managing project workflows can visualize Nearmap high resolution vertical imagery directly from Cityworks. There’s no need to jump outside the application or launch a new browser. Once the city planner sees the clear imagery, they can define new assets, overlay other data layers and build out the detail needed for projects. Anyone who can access that project can see the same combination of Cityworks data and Nearmap imagery allowing virtual teams to collaborate. As a result, this integrated technology is a game changer for city planners and GIS professionals as well as project managers and anyone involved in the city planning ecosystem.
“This partnership between Nearmap and Cityworks really brings a top-to-bottom ability to plan and manage public assets,” said Tony Agresta, Executive Vice President of products at Nearmap. “The tools from both companies are available online so they can be accessed in the office or out in the field.”
Cityworks has a 24-year history of expertise and innovation in asset management and offers Esri® ArcGIS® to help local governments, utilities and other organizations work smarter and better serve their residents.
“We provide a single point of contact for government services,” said George Mastakas, vice president of enterprise solutions and corporate partnerships. “Together with Nearmap, we can offer our customers unparalleled tools to plan and manage communities.”
Nearmap provides access to an extensive library of current and historical imagery; including vertical, panorama, oblique and 3D images.
Cityworks has tools for managing and tracking the work that regulates local government assets. The company simplifies the process to maintain an asset inventory and eliminates the need for data syncing interfaces and associated data normalization challenges.
Cityworks supports more than 700 organizations throughout the U.S. and around the world. Local governments, utilities and other organizations use its tools for customer service, operations management, and forecasting.
