A Bird’s Eye View: Aerial Imagery in the City of Carmel

There is a lot to keep track of in the City of Carmel, Indiana, where the population is 100,000 and rapidly growing. With the help of a Nearmap integration—along with Trimble Cityworks and Esri ArcGIS—the city has been able to stay on top of its asset management workflows and foster sustainable development of its community. 

Nearmap, an Australian aerial imaging company, provides frequently updated aerial imagery that has given the City of Carmel the ability to remotely manage its community and track its growth. Nearmap integrates seamlessly with Cityworks and ArcGIS, allowing users to view aerial imagery directly in the Cityworks platform. 

Trimble Cityworks, ArcGIS, and the Nearmap integration have been instrumental in assisting the City of Carmel maintain its stormwater billing program. This program helps fund city drainage projects and stormwater and sewer maintenance and construction by collecting fees off of  residential and commercial properties.

Trimble Cityworks, ArcGIS, and Nearmap create a system of record where stormwater billing data is continuously stored and updated. This saves time, resources, and ultimately helps the City of Carmel manage public assets and plan for the implementation of future infrastructure as the city grows.
