Australia’s population is booming, with some regions growing by more than 50 percent over the last five years.
In celebration of its upcoming 10th anniversary, Nearmap, the Aussie aerial imagery company, has paired its high-res aerial imagery with new Australian Bureau of Statistics data, revealing the country's rapid growth through before and after images of the top 10 fastest growing regions in Australia.
As businesses and local governments work to stay ahead of housing and infrastructure demand, it is becoming increasingly important to fully utilise technology to save time, keep costs down and ultimately speed up delivery of large-scale, long-term developments projects, like those pictured below.
Rob Newman, Nearmap CEO, said from the ground it can be difficult to see the pace at which Australia is growing.
"But when you look at it from the air, you can observe in incredible detail the change occurring across our country, even just in the last five years," he said.
“Nearmap captures, manages and delivers the most frequently-updated high res aerial imagery in the world.
“And by having access to the most up to date information, businesses and government agencies are able to make more informed and strategic decisions, critical for effectively planning and managing urban development as Australia’s population continues to grow.”
