Nearmap derives its AI data from the latest available aerial imagery, which is consistent across our coverage areas due to our advanced and technically superior capture program. To get the most out of Nearmap AI, use it to:
- Refine and correct your existing data by comparing it with one that is updated frequently and consistently, allowing you to highlight areas of change.
- Build an information system using AI data. For example, gather data on all the houses in a suburb that have solar panels installed.

If you need to move faster, by getting two dates to compare when you sign up, talk to your Nearmap Account Manager about offline delivery.
