The new website, which has an enhanced look and improved user experience, provides access to the most up to date aerial photography, height data, detailed 3D models, LiDAR, thermal imagery and Ordnance Survey mapping. www.bluesky-world.com is the only UK site offering online access to this wide selection of data for areas across England, Wales and Scotland.
“Bluesky has built up an extensive range of geographic data which it has now made available from a single on-line mapshop,” said Rachel Tidmarsh, Managing Director of Bluesky. “We recognise the need to continually deliver what the market wants and this is why we continually review both our online service and product offering ensuring we are up to date and inline with market expectations. We are confident that this new look website offering access to a huge range of up to date geographic information will prove popular with both existing and new customers.”
After selecting a location by simply entering a postcode, place or geographic co-ordinate, visitors to www.bluesky-world.com are shown an overview image of the chosen area, which they can zoom in or out, or pan around to refine their search.
