RP Data recently purchased new mapping imagery from NearMap to bring its subscribers improved detail, accuracy and functionality from the maps offered by RP Data’s products and services.

Covering most metropolitan areas in Australia, the improved mapping tool offers a professional level of detail to give users an accurate and up to date picture of their surroundings whilst still being able to overlay rich RP Data property detail onto the map.

Users of RP Data’s products and services will be able to use these NearMap images to get a visual representation of the market in their area and mark specific properties, recent sales, properties currently on the market, and more*.

“As the pioneers of online property information, we are continually investing in emerging state-of-the-art technologies which are user-friendly and cost-effective for customers at all levels” said Kris Matthews, RP Data Chief Data Officer.

“In NearMap, we saw the potential for their frequently updated PhotoMaps to add significant value to the ‘real time’ data we provide to our customers. The PhotoMaps enable RP Data customers to get a much clearer view of what a property looks like today and enable them to make much more informed investment decisions.”
