Detailed aerial photography covering all of England and Wales is now available over the internet on a pay-as-you-go basis from Getmapping.
ImageExpress Plus allows users to roam and zoom, with its high 250mm pixel resolution detailed enough to display features down to road markings. Data can be downloaded directly into GIS systems.
The images are geo-corrected to match Ordnance Survey LandLine digital mapping, enabling labelling information such as street names to be overlaid directly on to the photography.
All areas will be reflown on a five year cycle.
Getmapping's aerial photography has recently been integrated into Mayrise Systems' local authority contract management system Mayrise.
Mayrise users can view the map-accurate aerial photographs overlain by asset symbols and works locations. By clicking on these points, assets such as streetlights are immediately displayed on screen through a link to the Mayrise database.
