Aerial imagery company Nearmap kicks off its flagship event Nearmap NAVIG8 today, with more than 5,000 set to join the livestream of Nearmap executive addresses and use case presentations across government, AEC (architecture, engineering and construction), solar and insurance.
Nearmap NAVIG8 was created to provide a forum for Nearmap customers from around the world to gather and share their experiences and insights. Themed “truth is in the detail,” Nearmap NAVIG8 2020 will showcase the latest innovations from Nearmap, including pioneering artificial intelligence (AI) technology, Nearmap AI. Nearmap AI is a series of datasets constructed from machine learning models deployed across Nearmap high-definition aerial images. It allows users to automatically identify ground features, from tree overhang to residential footprints, track changes and verify insights against current aerial imagery at massive scale.
“After the successful commercial launch of Nearmap AI in June, we are excited to showcase the range of businesses and industries that use Nearmap and are innovating novel business solutions through our aerial imagery and 2D, 3D and AI capabilities,” said Dr. Rob Newman, CEO of Nearmap. “This year has underscored the need for businesses to be adaptable and flexible. We look forward to demonstrating how Nearmap’s innovation has given our customers the tools and insights to change the way they work and future-proof their businesses.”
Newman will keynote the conference with a presentation on the future of location mapping in sectors such as the government, AEC and insurance industries.
In addition to Newman’s keynote, Nearmap NAVIG8 features a line-up including customers, partners and business leaders from the City of Ryde Council (NSW), Esri, OpenSolar, Locatrix, Mulpha, Cardno, Travelers, Corelogic and GAF. The speakers will discuss how they leverage insights from high-definition Nearmap aerial imagery and detailed datasets. They will also showcase real-world examples of how Nearmap’s technology has enabled various industries across the globe to create efficiencies, revolutionize the way people work, and even save lives. Attendees will hear from presenters on topics spanning from planning cities of the future, refining the insurance underwriting and claims process, and turbocharging project development lifecycles to improving emergency response and public safety.
Viewers can submit their questions to be answered by experts in real time in a live Twitter Q&A session, which will run during the keynote address between 12 p.m.-12:30 p.m. EST, using the hashtag #AskNearmap. Nearmap customers will also have the chance to experience Nearmap AI technology through an obligation-free 30-day trial and get hands-on experience with the location technology.
